In a dramatic turn of events, Bungie has announced the cancellation of today’s Curse of Osiris livestream in favour of a blog post detailing plans to improve Destiny 2’s gameplay systems, addressing recent player concerns in the process.

Bungie confirmed the news via Twitter last night with a lengthy Tweet from community manager DeeJ. In it he explained why the decision had been made to cancel the livestream.

The third and final Curse of Osiris livestream was planned to show off some of the weapons and armour included with the expansion. Instead, Bungie will now focus on delivering its goals for Destiny 2’s future and detail a number of game updates that will be arriving in the coming weeks.

Ever since Bungie’s last DLC livestream on 21st November - which showcased an area called the Infinite Forest and a brand new Public Event set on Mercury - there’s been growing discontent with the state of Destiny 2 fundamental systems that’s finally boiled over.

At first, players felt deflated by last week’s stream which spawned the infamous "two tokens and a blue" meme after community manager DeeJ introduced the latest Public Event as the "most rewarding ever"....and received two tokens and one rare item from taking part.

Soon after this, Bungie admitted to having a hidden scaling system in the game that decreased the rate of experience granted, while still indicating that Guardians were earning at the normal rate. This was seemingly to encourage players to purchase Bright Engram (aka the game's version of the now infamous loot box) using real money.

Bungie disabled the system, but players quickly discovered that it had implemented another hidden system which doubled the amount of EXP required to level up, thus slowing down the rate at which you earned Bright Engrams.

You only have to check the Destiny Subreddit or Bungie’s official forums to see that the community is in a state of uproar. Players are unhappy with both Bungie/Activision’s lack of transparency and the current overall state of Destiny 2, and it’s become such an issue that Bungie has been compelled to redraw their plans and address the community directly.

We’ll be covering all the key details from Bungie’s blog post, so keep our site bookmarked for the latest updates.
