Bungie says they accidentally enabled a cross-play ‘sneak peek’ for Destiny 2, shutting it down this week
‘We will likely be implementing a repair’
Remember when Sony mentioned that cross-play was a no go, after which Epic “accidentally enabled cross-play for Fornite” displaying us that it was all a rip-off? Well, underneath totally different circumstances, Destiny 2 simply acquired surprise-cross-play.
We’re far faraway from the darkish occasions of Sony excusing a lack of cross-play as “Sony systems being the best place to play” (yikes), however not each recreation has true cross-play even nonetheless, together with Destiny 2…at the very least proper now. This week a bunch of Destiny 2 gamers had been randomly noticing, with incontrovertible proof, that folk had been interfacing with gamers from totally different platforms.
This was formally acknowledged by group supervisor Cozmo, who addressed the situation on Twitter. Cozmo notes: “We are seeing reports that some players are able to get a sneak peek at Crossplay. This isn’t meant to be live yet and is not representative of the full experience. We will be implementing a fix to remove public access later this week, but in the meantime feel free to partake.”
In this state of affairs, Bungie will get to have their cake and eat it too. Simply enabling cross-play is a large effort, as we have been instructed by publishers and builders alike within the aforementioned darkish days. So gamers get to get pleasure from this little bonus interval and drum up good PR whereas Bungie smooths the function over. You’d assume that a informal “we’ll get to it later this week” reply would not fly with the entire publishers concerned, however it appears wonderful!
Still, it is a good factor ultimately, and now that we all know it works, we could be pretty sure that when it is “ready,” it will truly come. We’ve seen it! Now everybody can commiserate over the insane transmog system collectively as one.
