The New Update
Destiny 2 update 2.7.1 was released on January 28, 2020.
The update seems to have improved performance along the story line. It has also introduced several bug fixes and changes which, previously, was a roadblock to versatile performance. The update has brought more exciting weapons and more raids and missions for the Guardians.
The new patch is reported to have caused data removed from accounts. Glimmer is the most noted removal which has affected many PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft PC gamers. Ascent and Legendary Shards, and Enhancement Prisms have also been found missing after the end of the maintenance period.
Even though there has been no official confirmation as to what the reason might be, the developers are looking into the issue. Hopefully, the bug will be fixed soon. In a note addressing the issue, Bungie released a statement that,
“Over the last few months, we’ve been gathering feedback associated with game performance. This translates to moments when you may see framerate drops during activities or long load times when accessing a menu. The team has been deep in the code, looking for potential causes of these issues. While our goal is to address these at the beginning of the next season, these fixes may be delayed if further issues arise. We’ll be sure to keep you updated”.
Bugs have certainly spread discontent among the gamers, as we can see from the fluctuating interest levels among the Guardians. Bungie will certainly get back with bug fixes so that it lives up to the games’ reputation as being too better than the original.
