In the wake of controversies surrounding Destiny 2’s end-game progression, developer Bungie announced they are cancelling tomorrow’s livestream for upcoming DLC Curse of Osiris. Instead, the studio will speak to fans directly about the state of the game.
From the Bungie forums:
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. Instead, we are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2. You’ll hear from studio leadership about their assessment of Destiny all up, they’ll talk about our goals for the game going forward, and you’ll also learn about how we’re reacting to your feedback with some game updates that will arrive in the next few weeks.
That will appear on the Bungie Blog on Wednesday.
Over the last week, players discovered that end-game XP was being throttled, reducing the rate at which they’d earn cosmetics, leading some to speculate that it was used to steer players towards microtransactions. Bungie walked back on that design choice, but also implemented another one – doubling the required XP to level up.
Destiny 2’s upcoming DLC – Curse of Osiris – launches December 5.
