Bungie cancels Destiny 2 livestream as tensions with community rise

Later on today, Bungie was scheduled to hold a livestream going over new details for Destiny 2's upcoming expansion, The Curse of Osiris. On the Destiny website, Bungie says that the trial features campaign missions on EDZ and Titan, the ability to explore both worlds, Crucible Quickplay Playlist for a taste of multiplayer, character progression up to level 7 (out of 20), clan functionality, and the ability to transfer all of your progress to the full game.

"Tomorrow, we had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of "Curse of Osiris" to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes".

"We are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2", said David "DeeJ" Dague, community manager at Bungie, in a post on the studio's forums this afternoon. Many were unhappy with this change, which is why Bungie will be taking to its blog this evening to address concerns. As for that whole XP thing, Bungie states that it has "begun the process of collecting data and recalibrating XP earn rates to improve them as quickly as possible", adding: "Expect to see a lot of conversation from our team on this front, as XP rewards are updated and brought back in-line with player expectations".

Recently, Bungie changed the XP system in Destiny 2 works after players expressed their dissatisfaction with how it worked. This has obviously been perceived as a means to funnel people to spend money on Bright Engrams.

The 1994 animated Mulan made US$304.3 million worldwide and received Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. Disney announced the news yesterday on their blog and the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, Sina Weibo.

All of this has left a bad taste in the mouth of hardcore and casual players alike, and when coupled with the nearly three months of zero game balancing (in the form of weapon and subclass nerfs and buffs), the community is at a boiling point.

Bungie is giving everyone a chance to try out its action RPG, Destiny 2, with a free trial.

Tonight, fans are expecting to hear from Destiny 2 top dog Luke Smith and number two Mark Noseworthy.
