Armor Set Rewards

“Players have pointed out that we didn’t release a new armor set for the ritual playlists (Vanguard, Crucible, Gambit) with Lightfall as previously called out in our yearly release schedule. Delivering ritual armor sets at the rates we have in the past has become increasingly challenging, especially considering these sets have historically had very low adoption by players as both base armor and cosmetic ornaments.”

Bungie has decided they will no longer creating a new armor set every expansion. They will be prioritizing releasing a new ritual armor set with The Final Shape. There is also a new Trials armor set coming in Season 22, check out a preview of the the Titan armor below.
