Destiny Gear Manager Will Go Offline Later This Month, Bungie Confirms
With Destiny 2 launch coming up fast Bungie is focussing all of its efforts of the upcoming title which also means less focus on the first game. Bungie is shutting down Destiny services one by one as the sequel’s launch is getting closer and now Bungie has confirmed that Destiny Gear Manager will go offline later this month.
Bungie announced through its Twitter account that Destiny Gear Manager will be shut down later this month on August 23, 2017. The studio also noted that third-party apps will continue to work with the game. While it is disappointing but, it is expected as Destiny 2 launch is getting closer.
Speaking of third-party apps, Bungie has announced that some of the third-party apps for in game capture and voice chat will not work properly with Destiny 2 on PC. According to Bungie, the studio is blocking these third-party apps to prevent cheating in Destiny 2 on PC.
To help ensure that every player will have a fair shot at fun and glory in Destiny 2 on PC, we resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client. This may result in incompatibility between Destiny 2 PC and the features of common third-party applications.
Furthermore, Bungie has detailed the content that will be featured in the upcoming Destiny 2 PC beta. According to Bungie, the PC beta of the game will include homecoming mission, the Inverted Spire Strike, and the Countdown and Control multiplayer modes which were already featured in the console beta but, it will also include some new content too.
Bungie has also detailed the specs for the upcoming Destiny 2 beta and the system requirements are surprisingly low.
Do you think Bungie has shut down the Destiny Gear Manager at the right time or should the devs let it online? Let us know in the comments.
