It’s been certain for some time that Destiny 2 will interfere. Now Bungie has a new one Mail “This Week at Bungie” Declares exactly how everything will work. In the future, players will likely have a common name that will be the same for each platform:
“We didn’t want your Guardian name to change if you logged into the game from somewhere else. We thought that would be counterproductive to anticipating how you are identified in this Destiny community, not to mention we would like the names of your friends and clanmates to change depending on which platform they sign up on. Entering the game through it.
“So we’re converting all the names into a single identity that will be the same on all the platforms you play on. We call this your Bungie. It will change your name once, but we think it will be for everyone better in the long run”
The new Bungie names consist of your player name, a combination of diamonds and numbers, i.e. player name #1234. However, only the actual player name is shown to other players. Due to the different character filters for different platforms, it may happen with new Bungie names where some characters are removed from certain players’ names so that they are either blank or given an entirely new meaning. If this happens, they will be replaced with the default name.
“There may be times when we remove these characters and players will be shown nameless or have names that contain offensive terms. If that happens, it becomes the default name,” Guardian[zufällige Zahl]”Look over your character’s head.”
Bungie won’t offer a name change feature at the start of the Season 15 crossover update, but the developers are “working hard to make it possible” this winter.
For the new cross-play update, there will also be a new matching system with different settings. The developers want to introduce cross-platform voice chat in an update shortly after the start of the new season.
Bungie can’t give a specific release date for the cross-play update.
