Destiny 2 Cross-Play accidentally went live due to Season of Splicer
Bungie will eventually bring cross-platform play to their looter shooter Destiny 2. However, the planned feature accidentally went live prematurely when Bungie rolled out the Season of Splicer seasonal Event in-game.
Destiny 2 cross-play works fine – but not yet ready says Bungie
We are seeing reports that some players are able to get a sneak peek at Crossplay.
This isn't meant to be live yet and is not representative of the full experience. We will be implementing a fix to remove public access later this week, but in the meantime feel free to partake. https://t.co/CKOfg1Fpq6

Destiny 2 players might have surprised themselves when they found out that the people they’re playing with on Crucible and on Strike played on a different platform. Windows PC users and Xbox players reportedly matched up together in the game. According to reports, there have not been any instances yet of PlayStation players joining in. Maybe the issue is more specific to Microsoft, but Bungie offered no official explanation yet. It might not matter, though, as cross-play appeared to be entirely fine. Most players report positively about the cross-play feature which has been implemented prematurely.
Meanwhile, Destiny 2 community manager Cozmo confirmed that the cross-play feature made it public accidentally. They reminded players that what they’re currently playing should in no way represent the actual release. But they didn’t discourage players from joining in on the fun.”We will be implementing a fix to remove public access later this week,” Cozmo says. “But in the meantime feel free to partake.”
The issue appears to have coincided with the release of the Season of Splicer. The seasonal event brings new cosmetics, new weapons, and of course, rare loot for players to find and collect. Join in on the weekly pinnacle mission Expunge and the Override PvP game mode to start collecting loot. Since its launch last Tuesday, the Season of Splicer will continue until August 24, 2021.
