Destiny 2 Yippee cross-play, but not today.
Launch Destiny 2The Splicer season started last night with a fluctuating start.
When the servers returned online after the usual maintenance before the start of each season, it didn’t take long for players to notice very long queue times. Then came Honeydew bugs, which prevent players from accessing new content.
Although it seems to have been more serious this time, it’s all quite common for Destiny’s seasonal starts. But for one thing, the players didn’t count on being able to play with friends on other platforms.
Of course, Destiny 2 does not yet support cross-play, and Bungie plans to officially introduce the feature later this season in Season 13. But what happened behind the scenes this week has allowed players to join Fireteams with friends on other platforms. In fact, cross-play in Destiny 2 has been available since this writing.
Unfortunately, this was not a soft run for this feature. Bungie’s senior community manager, Cozmo, revealed on Twitter that it was turned on by accident and will be turned off later this week.
“We will implement a fix to remove public access later this week, but for now you can participate,” he said on Twitter.
We see reports that some players are able to look into Crossplay.
This is not yet to be live and does not represent the whole experience. Later this week, we will implement a fix to remove public access, but for now you can participate. https://t.co/CKOfg1Fpq6
