Destiny 2 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Bungie is concerned that PS5 players are inadvertently playing the PS4 version of Destiny 2, and has gently reminded players to check which iteration of the game they are running.

The friendly nudge came during the company's weekly blog update, fittingly called This Week at Bungie. Amidst the usual list of tweaks and announcements was the fairly surprising directive, with the company picking up on the fact that a "notable number of PS5 players are playing the PS4 version of Destiny 2 on their current-generation consoles".

Now look, we may or may not have been guilty of doing this once or twice ourselves, particularly back when the PS5 first launched. Sony's messaging around this aspect of the platform hasn't always been great, but at least now, the PS5 version of a game is downloaded by default upon purchasing a game.

But imagine the wonderment of someone who has been playing Destiny 2 for dozens, hundreds or even thousands of hours, realising they could have been playing the same game at a vastly improved frame rate, with improved graphical fidelity. Or maybe they are perfectly content the way they are. In any case, check to make sure you are playing the correct version of Destiny 2. The difference is as vast as the space between stars.

Be honest, were you playing the PS4 version of Destiny 2 this whole time? We promise we won't make fun. Pour your heart out in the safest space around, in the comments section below.
