Gamers have already been complaining about the lack of end-game content for Destiny 2 and now Bungie has announced that its PvP mode for the end-game, Destiny 2 Trials Of The Nine, has been postponed for the next two weeks because of the emote glitch that allowed players to go through walls.
Bungie announced it through its latest blog that Destiny 2 Trials Of The Nine has been postponed until November 3, 2017, as the developers will be working to fix the glitch that allows players to go through walls and gain a competitive advantage over other players.
As a follow-up to reported incidents of emote glitching in the Crucible, we are investigating a fix that we plan to deploy during the first week of November. In the meantime, the next two instances of Trials of the Nine will be postponed. Please stay tuned for updates. We will provide more information as it becomes available. At this time the next instance of Trials of the Nine is forecasted to resume on November 3, 2017.
The glitch in question came in the spotlight last week which was caused by the “Bureaucratic Walk” emote in Destiny 2.
Bungie has since then taken down the emote from sale in Destiny 2 but, the emote itself has not been removed from inventories of the players who have already purchased it.
In related news, Destiny 2 is one of the hottest releases of this year and despite the hype behind the game, its retail sales fell well short of expectations. Retail sales for the game fell 50% in the US and in the UK the figure is 58%.
Recently, the news broke that Activision has patented a system that encourages players to buy in-game items through the use of some clever matchmaking. This also made Destiny 2 fans wonder if the game uses this algorithm and Bungie has clarified that Destiny 2 doesn’t use the patented matchmaking system.
Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter developed by Bungie for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PC version will be available on October 24 and is being worked on by Vicarious Visions.
