About a month ago, it was declared that Bungie’s science fiction shooter Destiny 2 managed to succeed in having the biggest console game launch for 2017 so far, with loads of veteran Guardians and newbies alike flocking to the sequel upon its release. With this being the case, it’s safe to presume that plenty of players have encountered an incredibly annoying bug that has caused crashes while loading into the Tower social space, but thankfully, the latest update for the game seems to have rectified the issue.
Earlier this morning at roughly 11:00 AM ET, Bungie officially announced that it had addressed the problem involving Tower crashes during a period of network maintenance for Destiny 2 that did not require server downtime. As it so happens, the developer’s patch notes for Update 220.127.116.11 only list one aspect being fixed, but it should certainly delight the player base, as the patch has “Fixed an issue that was causing crashes while loading into the Tower.”
Hotfix 18.104.22.168 is now available. Players may need to manually check for updates to begin installation process: https://t.co/Ocy0lEVMfq

While Update 22.214.171.124 will surely be applauded by Destiny 2 fans, it’s quite possible that the issue could persist for some players. Nevertheless, should the patch offer even the tiniest sliver of an improvement, the fix is likely to be welcomed by anyone who has had to repeatedly restart the game due to crashes while loading in the Tower. After all, the game’s server maintenance is ongoing, but that shouldn’t affect Guardians ability to play. However, should one have been online when Update 126.96.36.199 released, it might be necessary to close out of the game and restart it in order to download the patch.
All things considered, with Destiny 2‘s Tower bug having been fixed, most fans will now draw their attention toward the forthcoming Prestige Leviathan Raid, which recently received a delay to remove an exploit that ultimately makes many of the boss encounters in the mode too easy. Although Bungie currently has the Prestige Leviathan Raid slated for October 18, 2017, Guardians are almost assuredly hoping the studio will surprise everyone by releasing it bug-free earlier than expected. Until then, though, players at least have the chance to focus on the title’s first Iron Banner event.
Destiny 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is set to launch on October 24, 2017 for PC.
