Bungie Accidentally Let Xbox And PC 'Destiny 2' Players Get Exclusive PlayStation Exotic
Bungie has egg on its face after selling a PS4-exclusive exotic to PC and Xbox Destiny 2 players last weekend. The Wavesplitter trace rifle was available through the travelling alien salesman, Xur, despite the game being exclusive to PlayStation players until September.
"We're investigating an issue where the Sony exclusive weapon Wavesplitter was made available from Xûr on Xbox and PC," Bungie community manager Cozmo wrote on the forums. "We're currently working on a fix. In the meantime, Xbox and PC players who acquired the weapon will be able to use it. After the fix goes live, they will still have it in their inventories, but will not be able to equip it until this weapon enters the general Exotic loot pool in September 2019."
Destiny 2's original publisher, Activision, made the exclusivity deal with Sony back at the game's launch. Now that Bungie holds all the keys to Destiny, with Activision stepping away as publisher, it's unclear whether the deal will continue in the future - though, Bungie will be bound by the contracts Activision signed.
So, if you were one of the players who got your hands on the exclusive weapon, use it for all its worth until that fix goes live. After that you'll have six months of staring at it sat in your inventory. Waiting.
