The upcoming Destiny 2 Livestream has been cancelled Bungie has announced, in an effort to work to address some of the concerns raised by the community as of late.
Later this evening Bungie was scheduled to hold a livestream for Bungie’s upcoming expansion, Curse of Osiris, that’ll highlight some of the new weapons and armor coming to the game. In a forum post last night however, Bungie announced that it’ll be cancelling the live stream in order to deliver “some higher priority information about Destiny”.
In a blog post, community manager David “DeeJ” Dague wrote:
“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. Instead, we are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2. You’ll hear from studio leadership about their assessment of Destiny all up, they’ll talk about our goals for the game going forward, and you’ll also learn about how we’re reacting to your feedback with some game updates that will arrive in the next few weeks.
“That will appear on the Bungie Blog on Wednesday.”
This feedback that Bungie has received addresses the recent news that Destiny 2 players were earning XP at half the rate than they should have been. There are also underlying issues around the game with dedicated fans raising concerns about the game’s money-grabbing efforts with PS4-exclusives, exotic emotes and much more.
This Thanksgiving weekend Bungie admitted that players were essentially earning half the amount of XP they deserved and that it was implementing a fix. However, players quickly learned that the solution involved doubling the XP necessary to level up, which players were not happy about.
Bungie have since been scrambling to address this issue and to keep raging fans at bay.
Next week the Destiny 2 team will detail the systems side of the December update.
It includes: economy updates (vendors & acquiring their gear, tokens, legendary shards), investment updates (new reward systems for weapons & armor) gameplay updates, and more. (1/2)

Overall it looks as if Bungie have got a lot to work on with Destiny 2 over the next couple of weeks, especially if they want players to grab the first big expansion.
Curse of Osiris is set to land in just a few short days on December 5.
