Destiny 2 Ranked PvP Promised for Next Year

Destiny 2 Ranked PvP Promised for Next Year

Bungie caught a whiff and as a result has made a decision to cancel today's livestream showcasing the game's upcoming expansion, Curse of Osiris.

Over on the Bungie forums, the studio wrote: "Tomorrow, we had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of Curse of Osiris to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes". In its place will be a blog post where "studio leadership" will have an opportunity to talk about the state of the game.

This all follows from last week's news that Destiny 2 contained a hidden XP scaling system, which would actively lower the value of each experience point for players chaining together multiple activities. Players can either gather XP and receive a Bright Engram (Destiny 2's loot crate, albeit with no major game-affecting boosters à la Star Wars Battlefront 2) or pay real money to receive one instead.

Many Destiny 2 gamers are not particularly happy with how the title turned out and they have been making a stink about it. More fixes and adjustments are on the way as Destiny fans patiently await the upcoming expansion, Curse of Osiris.

Recently, Bungie changed the XP system in Destiny 2 works after players expressed their dissatisfaction with how it worked. We want Destiny to be a game that fits into your life, providing you with reasons to log in and play with your friends, clans, and families. A lot of the issues here just seem to stem from a lack of communication. But players soon found out that the solution apparently involved doubling the amount of XP necessary to level up, which only caused a further outcry in the community.

You can check out in full the changes coming to the game in the official announcement, with especially detailed reports on what will be available in the December 5 and 12 updates.

Tonight, fans are expecting to hear from Destiny 2 top dog Luke Smith and number two Mark Noseworthy.
