Bungie Swings the Ban Hammer Once More in Destiny
Online games have always been the victim of hackers trying to cheat their way to the top of the leaderboards. Destiny is also among those games who fall victims to such hackers and cheaters but Bungie has decided to take a step against the hackers.
Those who have been taking advantage of the Destiny’s somewhat lackluster architecture for winning raids or any other reason has been banned. Community manager Cozmo posted on his Twitter account that Bungie has again used its ban hammer to get rid of the cheaters.

Hackers and cheaters have been a long-standing issue for the game and many gamers have blamed it on the lack of dedicated servers and some have blamed it on the slow response from the devs.
Destiny 2 has been confirmed to be in development and according to a recent leak the game will launch for PC along with the consoles. According to the leak, Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios would help with the PC port of Destiny 2 and the game will feel like a completely new game, rather than a continuation of the current Destiny.
Recently, Activision CEO said that Destiny 2 is on track for release in fall 2017. He further said that the developers could not keep up with the demand of content for the first game, but together they have come up with a new approach to keeping a steady stream of content going.
We’re on track and excited about what we think is going to be an awesome sequel for Destiny in 2017.the sequel is designed to excite both our highly engaged current players, but also to broaden the appeal even further, bringing in new fans and bringing back old fans as well.
Destiny is a first-person multiplayer shooter developed by Bungie for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlaySttion 3.
