The big day finally arrived: Microsoft officially launched the Xbox One X console today. However, one question remains unanswered: is Destiny 2 support on the list?
For the time being, both Bungie and Microsoft refused to offer a clear answer to this question and preferred to keep the mystery. Xbox One X owners are rather disappointed by this situation, but haven’t lost hope.
As a matter of fact, they have been asking Bungie for months to add Xbox One X support for Destiny 2.
This is the one game I’m really into right now and it’s awful that it’s not supported. You read stories of it being done in one day by a small team. Destiny 2 had an obscene amount of people working on it, there’s no excuse.
Other players got so angry at Bungie for not answering this question that they are now refusing to play the game.
I put 3000 hours into Destiny 1. Won Bungie’s first ‘Movie of the Week’ and had two other videos featured in their weekly updates.
I haven’t touched Destiny 2 in a month and with no mention of an XOX patch, I won’t even reinstall my digital copy onto my XOX. Which is pretty disappointing honestly.
Proof that Destiny 2 Xbox One X support is on its way
The good news is that many fans of the game haven’t lost hope and are convinced that Bungie is working to add Xbox One X support.
The first proof is that Destiny 2 was one of the games sent with the Xbox One X review units, and all the games were Xbox One X enhanced.
Second, not supporting Destiny 2 would upset a lot of gamers and that’s not in Bungie’s interest.
Third, Bungie hasn’t yet dropped HDR support for either system. As a result, gamers have concluded that the company is probably waiting for that to finalize.
It will indeed be interesting to see if Destiny 2 Xbox One X support arrives this year.
Could this be Bungie’s winter holiday gift to its fans?
