In the wake of widespread anger over the state of Destiny 2, Bungie said today that it is canceling tomorrow’s livestream, which was meant to be the third of three streams promoting the game’s upcoming expansion, Curse of Osiris. Instead, Bungie said, it will address the overall state of the game tomorrow in a blog post.
Posting on Bungie’s forums this afternoon, David “Deej” Dague delivered the news:
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.
This comes after a bad few days for Destiny 2, as hardcore fans grumble not just over the recently changed XP system (which Bungie modified after players discovered it was rigged) but about the endgame, the loot system, and other perceived flaws in the popular shooter. Bungie had received a great deal of criticism for its lack of communication with fans, and the company now appears to be taking big steps to address that.
Curse of Osiris comes out on Tuesday, December 5. Tomorrow’s stream was scheduled to focus on the expansion’s new gear.
