Destiny 2 is almost a week old, and it already has millions of players across all the platforms. However, not everything seems to work seamlessly for all of them, as the players have been reporting various issues from the day of its release.

The most-recently reported issue concerns the Xbox One players. Namely, according to some of them, Destiny 2 tends to randomly shut down the console. Here’s what some of the players say about the problem:

“It was working fine the other day, but now it won’t turn on at all, and nothing shows up on screen. The second you press the power button to turn on the Xbox, it just shuts back off again. I am thinking this must have been caused by an overnight update. Any help is greatly appreciated,” said Redditor  Zombiezoid.

“I was on Xbox 5 minutes ago and in the middle of Destiny 2, my Xbox One turned off and I’ve been trying to turn it on. I’ve unplugged it and plugged it back in multiple times and it won’t turn on. I tried turning it on with my Xbox controller, wouldn’t turn on. Tried turning it on with the Xbox app, wouldn’t turn on. Idk what to do and this is my second Xbox one because I had to replace my first,” said ThighCream.

Unfortunately, nobody had a proper solution for this problem. Some other players suggest that moving the game to external drive could fix the problem, but that’s still not confirmed.

As it appears, Destiny 2 is causing more issues to the Xbox Players than it was initially expected. Some of the players are even joking that Bungie plans to discount Xbox support. We, however, hope that won’t turn out to be the case, and that the development team will eventually come up with solutions for at least some of the problems.
