Bungie pulls tonight's livestream to confront Destiny 2 criticism

Bungie Cancels Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Stream To Address Fan Anger

"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".

"We are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2", said David "DeeJ" Dague, community manager at Bungie, in a post on the studio's forums this afternoon. Instead, it will release a blog post penned by studio leadership to address the current atmosphere of anger which has engulfed in the game's community. Had they moved forward with the presentation as originally planned, you can imagine how that would've gone over. The developer also acknowledges that "the silent nature" of the game's XP progression "betrayed the expectation" that players have when it comes to Destiny 2.

Gundy talking to Tennessee Volunteers
He now holds a 113-53 (69-42 Big 12) overall record, which includes going 7-4 in bowl games and a Big 12 championship in 2011. A former quarterback at Oklahoma State, Gundy has been at his alma mater for 18 years, the last 13 as head coach.

At first, it had appeared that Bungie staff were planning to face the music on camera - and so some fans called foul when it was announced they would simply see a blog post instead. But players soon found out that the solution apparently involved doubling the amount of XP necessary to level up, which only caused a further outcry in the community. The throttling has since been removed, but the amount of XP needed to earn a Bright Engram has been doubled. Yay?

It remains to be seen what Bungie has to say tomorrow in regards to the recent controversy, but with the Destiny 2 community now up in arms, let's hope Bungie outlines some concrete answers for where Destiny 2 goes from here. Fans have also expressed concerns about how the endgame plays out, complaints about the loot system, and frustration at the lack of communication on Bungie's part. Bungie will be uploading a new podcast shortly featuring Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy addressing the condition of the game. If the perceived underlying problems of Destiny 2 aren't addressed, then there's a good chance the community will be just as outraged as they are now.
