The launch of Destiny 2’s Prestige Raid has been delayed due to an exploit


Players who were looking forward to tackling the Prestige version of Destiny 2’s Leviathan Raid will be disappointed to hear that it has been delayed over a week to fix an exploit.

The Prestige Raid was scheduled to go live at 12pm CT tomorrow, Oct. 10, but has been pushed back to a new start time of 12pm CT on Oct. 18.

“An exploit has been discovered in the Leviathan Raid that causes the encounters to be stripped of their intended challenge,” said Bungie community manager Cozmo. “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.”

Cozmo didn’t specify the exploit that caused the eight-day delay, but odds are it was this one that allows players to prevent adds from spawning during the Raid’s final encounter to make the fight incredibly easy to finish.

Thankfully, Iron Banner is still scheduled to go live for the first time in Destiny 2 tomorrow, so players have something to look forward to. The PvP event begins at 4am CT.
