Destiny 2 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Destiny 2's latest expansion, Lightfall, has rubbed some players the wrong way, with developer Bungie copping to some of the criticism and responding to feedback in a blog post.

The mea culpa reflects on the events of the past month within the larger Destiny-verse and touches on some franchise milestones. Destiny 2 saw its "highest number of concurrent players in years" for Lightfall, which the studio confirms "surpassed our sales expectations for a new expansion", with "record-breaking" viewership of the World First race to complete the Root of Nightmares raid.

But fans have been reporting issues with the title's rather convoluted progression and seasonal ranking system, overly bullet-spongey enemies in Legendary Campaign, and myriad other issues and grievances. Bungie acknowledges the problems, stating: "With a solid amount of data now under our belts, itโ€™s clear we missed the mark on some of our goals and needed to make updates based on constructive feedback."

The studio promises fixes before the advent of Season 21 (rumoured to begin around 23rd May) of the ongoing live-service juggernaut. The post itself is well worth a read for players invested in the evolution of the game.
