Bungie has said that intends to clear Destiny 2 of any and all symboles related to the meme, and "will be following up next week with another patch to remove the same element from the UI icon and preview screens, scrubbing it from the game altogether".
After several years and multiple expansion releases, Bungie has finally released the long-awaited second installment in the record-breaking franchise: Destiny 2, which is now available for PS4 and Xbox One; it doesn't release for PC until late October, unfortunately.
Bungie CEO Pete Parsons also confirmed that the game has seen over one million concurrent players on the game for every day over the past eight days. With the raid now live, the game shot to the No.1 position on Twitch for total concurrent viewers.
With franchise pre-order records broken, and record day-one performance on PlayStation Store, it's exciting to see engagement at the highest ever week-one concurrency for the franchise. "It's equal parts inspiring and humbling, and we're looking forward to showing everyone what's coming next!"
For the third year in a row, Destiny is the #1 console-only game viewed on Twitch by minutes watched. Human players even used it as a response to humorous situations. They have now revealed that the next one is on the horizon, which will bring the game up to version 126.96.36.199. In the story of Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new army. Players will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities.
On Tuesday, we reported that Destiny 2 developer Bungie would be removing an item with a white supremacist logo from the game.
Destiny 2's sales for this week put it above not just Splatoon 2, but a number of other games as well.
