The Last Wish will take place in the very heart of the Dreaming City

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Destiny raids have typically gone live just a few days after a new expansion. However, Destiny 2: Forsaken’s raid, known as Last Wish, will not be released until a full week and a half after the expansion debuts. Bungie announced the specific date and time, and the reason for this change, in this week’s This Week at Bungie.

The new raid, which will take place in the mysterious Dreaming City, will be released on Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. EDT. Once it’s available, all players will gain the chance to take down the monsters that Bungie has promised us. Senior raid designer Joe Blackburn said that players will need more than the usual three days to prepare, and that the team at Bungie wanted to be sure that the community had an opportunity to experience the full expansion before slamming into the hardest content.

While we know almost nothing about Last Wish, the name suggest a rumor that we speculated about recently. We, along with the community, guessed that the final boss could be one of the Ahamkara, the legendary dragons in the Destiny universe. Considering that these dragons are well-known for granting wishes and that they are nearly extinct, the name appears to tell all.

Why will we be fighting an Ahamkara? We won’t be able to learn that until Destiny 2: Forsaken is released on Sept. 4 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
