Destiny 2 won’t have private matches at launch

Crucible, the multiplayer mode that allows combat between players, will be present in Destiny 2 again. The bad news is that it will not allow, at least during the launch, these combats to be private.


This mode came alongside the Rise of Iron expansion in 2016, and allowed players to get together and do whatever they wanted, adapting to the rules available on Crucible. However, thanks to an interview with the director of Destiny 2, Luke Smith, with Kotaku we have known that these private games will not be available “during the launch.”

In turn, Smith also alluded to the qualifying games. Apparently , Bungie would be working on “something” that the director did not specify. At the same time, he also made it clear that this new feature they are working on was present in September, when the game will launch on the consoles.

The director noted that Bungie is working on satisfying the desire of fans to have ratings, in the sense by showing their positioning towards other players, but that does not mean having leaderboards or seasons. Apparently, they will not be classificatory “as we know them” so far.

Destiny 2 will be available on September 6 on PS4 and Xbox One, while the PC version will arrive on October 24.
