Bungie admits to banning some Destiny 2 players ‘in error’

Destiny 2 maker Bungie has said it accidentally banned a number of players from the online shooter.

In a post on Destiny 2 security, the developer said it had banned approximately 400 players on PC, saying that these users were given the axe for “using tools that pose a threat to the shared ecosystem of the game.”

Bungie says it has unbanned users who were banned in error, and that these bans had nothing to do with the use of third-party applications.

This news follows forum users posting that they had been banned without reason. Bungie initially said that this had nothing to do with third-party software.

Destiny 2 launched on PC on October 24th, following the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases on September 6th. This is the franchise's debut on PC, with this version of the sci-fi MMO project using Blizzard's client.
