Bungie has finally posted an official comment on the numerous reports from Destiny 2 players on PC claiming that they have been banned for using third-party applications such as chat clients and FPS counters.
According to the developer, players cannot be automatically banned from Destiny 2, instead all bans are manually handed out by the team after an investigation. Bungie also claimed that the 400 people who were actually banned by the team were “using tools that pose a threat to the shared ecosystem of the game” and that no one was banned for using third-party applications.
However, the developer later said that a group of PC players were banned in error and that these players have had their bans reversed. Although the developer still claims that no one was banned for using third-party applications.
“We will continue to review the process we use to ensure a fun and fair game,” Bungie added.
Destiny 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
