Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 will not feature Private Matches at launch. However, the developers are working on something that ranked players will definitely praise. In case you do not know, Private Matches in Destiny basically allow players to join a match and do whatever they want.
However, in a podcast by Kotaku, Destiny 2 director Luke Smith confirmed that Private Matches would not be available at launch. It is important to note that Smith said ‘at launch’ that hints at a possibility of seeing them in a future update but only time will tell.

When asked about Ranked Play, Smith’s response was vague again. According to Smith, the studio is working on something that may or may not make the game’s release date in September. The thing that the studio is currently working on is not essentially Ranked Play but it is definitely something that will quench the thirst of competitive players who wish to see how they fare against the best in the world.
Once again, it seems like Bungie is playing its cards close to its chest but we should have more information in a few weeks. While you wait for the game’s release, check out the screenshots that show PS4 exclusive Crucible map called the Retribution.
Destiny 2 is planned to release on Sept. 08, 2017 for Xbox One, Xbox One X, Playstation 4, and PS4 Pro. The PC version deploys a month later in October after a brief delay in order to meet the expectations of the PC gamers.
