Destiny 2 launch on PC didn’t go down too well as players faced many nasty issues and one of them being Crash on PC with AMD Phenom II CPU. When complaints related to it kept pouring in on various forums including Bungie’s official forum, the development team replied that “Destiny 2 will not run on processors without Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3)”.
