Destiny 2 Dataminers Confess To Faking Subscription Plan Leak – The rumours of a potential monthly subscription model caused some dissatisfaction in the Destiny 2 community. The news was shared on the D2 Datamines Discord server, as we mentioned last week. However, given that the dataminers have come forward and acknowledged to fabricating the news, it looks that the entire incident was a complete fabrication.
“ANDREW LINCOLN AND DANAI GURIRA REUNITE FOR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED THE WALKING DEAD’S SPINOFF !”
The dataminer from the Discord server, Elliot, was discovered by Destiny Tracker and acknowledged that the information was false. We were planning to just let this continue, but since it got so big and people were starting to get scared outside of the server, Elliot said, “We just wanted to openly apologise and admit that we trolled everyone.” Additionally, they indicated that moving ahead, these “joke posts” would be identified.
The leak’s level of information was a key factor in why it initially sounded plausible. Additionally, it originated from a typically reliable source, which just fueled the flames. Even though the dataminers apologised, the community may start to doubt their reliability moving ahead if this is perceived as one instance of them crying wolf.

Although the community has already criticised Bungie for boosting the cost of the yearly expansions, a monthly subscription model may be an alternative. Additionally, it forced players to pay extra to access Dungeons if they hadn’t already bought the Deluxe Edition of the yearly DLC. This gave the impression that the developer was trying to monetize the game more. These and other factors led some to think Bungie might pull it off.
In other events, a recent rumour claimed that Bungie’s forthcoming third-person game might utilise the Tiger Engine from Destiny 2. This was verified by a job posting that made a similar statement but was later edited to remove all references to the engine. As Destiny 2’s narrative moves into its final stretch, Bungie has been working on a brand-new game outside the Destiny universe for some time.
