Things have not been going well for Bungie and Destiny 2 lately. Fans have already been more than a little steamed at a lack of endgame content, a flawed loot system and a need for more of everything really. The latest revelation of a rigged XP system has only provided a tipping point.
Reddit user EnergiserX exposed the XP discrepancies through testing and data calculation. To sum up their findings, "to get one thing clear: there is no cap to XP. You can keep earning XP as fast as you want, and you will always be making progress towards that next bright engram. You will just face dramatically diminishing returns the faster you go." Bungie responded initially in a blog post simply titled "XP in Destiny 2" but fans were not satiated.
In another attempt to address their fan's concerns, Bungie announced via another blog post that they had canceled their stream scheduled for Nov. 29. The stream was planned to show off the upcoming DLC “Curse of Osiris” but will instead now focus on "delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2."
The post is short and vague, but lets players know that they'll hear from "studio leadership" about what they think of the game, goals, what's planned for future updates and reactions to feedback. Only time will tell if the information will be able to get players back on Bungie's side.
"Curse of Osiris" is the first expansion for Destiny 2 and is set to release Dec. 5.
