There has been some rather unwelcome news for Destiny 2 fans, especially for those who are eager for more challenges from the game, after Bungie confirmed that they will be postponing the Prestige difficulty of the Leviathan raid until next week, specifically on Wednesday, October 18th.
Bungie issued the following statement on their website:
“An exploit has been discovered in the Leviathan Raid that causes the encounters to be stripped of their intended challenge. To allow time to fix this issue, we are delaying the start of the Prestige Raid until next week. It’s important to us that the team who earns World First status doesn’t have their legacy tarnished by doubt, skepticism, or uncertainty.”
The Leviathan raid launched in the game a week following the launch on Xbox One and PS4 last month. So understandably, fans have been waiting patiently to hear more on when the Prestige difficulty will be implemented for that extra challenge boost. This was supposed to take place today, though the team has decided to delay it last minute in order to commit time to fixing the issue so that it’s fully ready.
There aren’t too many benefits to Prestige apart from its enhanced difficulty, especially after it was revealed that Prestige gear won’t grant players a power boost. It does however require a Power level of 300, which is something that dedicated players will be working hard towards.
Destiny 2 is now available on PS4 and Xbox One. The Prestige raid meanwhile will now take place on Wednesday, October 18th, at 10am Pacific time.
