Destiny 2 Expansion Appeared Online Days Before Official Launch

Sony's Game Streaming service is to blame.

Yesterday, some Destiny 2 players were able to access the game's expansion The Final Shape before its official release in a leak seemingly caused by Sony's Game Streaming service. Users saw the expansion's pre-loaded content and were able to experience what was coming in advance.

Players who logged in were given a new Guardian Rank 1 account and asked to clear the tutorial. They had access to the director map, inventory pages, and collections-based items. Those who managed to get Rank 2 could start the Final Shape campaign, but at that time, Bungie noticed the mistake and began shutting down servers.

So eventually, weapons, armor, exotics, cosmetics, the season pass, some raid loot, and parts of the first campaign mission were leaked. You can find more information about it here.

Bungie

Bungie addressed the issue on X/Twitter, asking players to be cautious of possible spoilers:

"We recommend being very careful on social media over the next few days to avoid spoilers. Remember to exercise caution and be critical of potential misinformation. Please be considerate of others and report leaks so players can experience the conclusion of the Light and Darkness saga themselves."

Sony bought Bungie for $3.6 billion in 2022. Unfortunately, the studio was hit by layoffs last year.

This is the second time in several days that Sony messed up. Earlier, it had to remove an interview with Naughty Dog's president Neil Druckmann due to "significant errors" and apologize for misrepresenting his words.

Hopefully, we won't see any more mistakes on its part. Try to navigate the internet carefully before The Final Shape comes out on June 4.
