Bungie: The Cryptarch Might Not Be Featured In Destiny 2

Destiny 2 is one of the most anticipated games to launch later this year. Bungie is aiming to make a lot of improvements to the upcoming game over the first one which means some features and things might be missing or gone in the upcoming Destiny 2 and it seems The Cryptarch might also be missing from the sequel.

Speaking with PC Gamer, PC lead David Shaw and senior software engineer Thomas Gawrys was asked about The Cryptarch to which the devs replied that they are not sure if The Cryptarch will be featured in Destiny 2. “If there were a Cryptarch. I don’t know that there is.”

For those who don’t know, The Cryptarch is a vendor in Destiny who converts engrams into gear. Initially, the vendor was considered a pain in a** but, eventually, players came to terms with the character and became an integral part of the game.

Also, Bungie has assured gamers that Destiny 2 will be more accessible to players and will be compatible with the “real life”. According to game director Luke Smith, with the first game the studio failed to make the game more accessible or make it compatible with “real life” but, that will change with Destiny 2.

Destiny has also been confirmed for Xbox One X, however, fans we disappointed with the game being locked at 30 FPS on the console. But, Bungie has explained the reason behind the FPS lock, According to Bungie, Destiny 2 uses CPU for a majority of its features which is the reason why the game is locked at 30 FPS.

Project lead, Mark Noseworthy confirmed through his twitter account that many of the elements of Destiny 2 like AI count, Environment Sizes, and the number of players and all CPU controlled and with such load on CPU, pulling off 60 FPS is nearly impossible.

Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at Bungie and is scheduled to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
