Destiny players will have to wait a little longer to chum it up with Brother Vance and pals.


Destiny PvP has gone to pieces over the past few days thanks to the spread of an exploit pertaining to Nightstalkers, the new Hunter subclass.

The latest Bungie Weekly Update acknowledges this bug before announcing a delay to this weekend’s Trials of Osiris, the first since The Taken King launched last month.

“It turns out that there’s a particularity nasty bug that would undoubtedly conspire to create a less competitive return to form for Trials of Osiris,” community manager David “Deej” Dague wrote.

“We’re going to disable that bug before we invite you to take your next run at a 9-0. We’re also working on a final fix for the bug itself as soon as possible.

“As soon as we have a solid commitment for Brother Vance, we’ll make a formal announcement on when Trial of Osiris will begin again. We hope that most of you recognize the impact a limitless Nightstalker would have on the competitive landscape.”

It’s a shame we have to sit on our hands indefinitely but a lot better than being pointless owned over and over again.
