Destiny 2 Matchmaking Will Happen Through Guided Games, Say Goodbye to Traditional Matchmaking
Destiny 2 matchmaking will be very different from the original game. According to Bungie, the traditional matchmaking does not work for their game. We have guided games that can help attract more audience for PvP. Guided games are like built it LFG for Destiny. You can create a Clan in Destiny 2 and you can use these clans and find games through these clans. You can also search different clans and play with the one you like.

We’ve been pretty consistent that matchmaking is just incompatible for us. The type of community we want to have, the friendly, welcoming space we want Destiny to be. Because matchmaking takes anonymous people and puts them together and says, ‘Please behave.’ And then these really competitive activities we have say, ‘Please be good. Please communicate. Please coordinate. Please be fair to other players.’ And you can do that when you have social groups that exist, but it doesn’t work when we put you with a random player or someone else. So matchmaking is fine for pickup-and-play PvP or strikes where you can’t really suck at this strike if you run forward and shoot everything. You don’t need to talk. And that’s great for certain modes, but when you are playing Trials of Osiris, you need to talk. When you are playing the raid – people have roles, there is coordination.
Putting random players together that are incompatible with each other was not working and often resulted in frustration for the player. This new system will not only work great for PvP but PvE as well. The feature will allow players to be paired and engage with the community they feel is right for them. However, the lack of dedicated servers may still cause a problem.
Destiny 2 is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year. The PC version is delayed to 2018.
