Bungie made a rather unfore­seen announce­ment today on Twit­ter, regard­ing the Pres­tige ver­sion of the Leviathan Raid for Des­tiny 2. So if you have been get­ting pre­pared for the what­ev­er might be lying ahead, slow your roll, because you’ve got a wait ahead of you.

Appar­ent­ly, they “dis­cov­ered” an exploit that would make the Pres­tige mode, well, not pres­tige. So they decid­ed the best course of action was sim­ply delay it. It appears this is thanks to a “cheese” that leaves no ene­mies in behind in the Throne Room. You can read more about that on this Red­dit post.

Bungie stat­ed, “An exploit has been dis­cov­ered in the Leviathan Raid that caus­es the encoun­ters to be stripped of their intend­ed chal­lenge. To allow time to fix this issue, we are delay­ing the start of the Pres­tige Raid until next week. It’s impor­tant to us that the team who earns World First sta­tus doesn’t have their lega­cy tar­nished by doubt, skep­ti­cism, or uncer­tain­ty.”

The Leviathan Pres­tige Raid was sup­posed to start tomor­row upon the week­ly reset, but will now be hap­pen­ing on Wednes­day, Octo­ber 18, at 10am Pacif­ic. Well over a week, and a full after next week’s reset.

This is noth­ing to get upset about. Tues­day is the first Iron Ban­ner event for Des­tiny 2. As usu­al it will last all week long and have Iron Ban­ner spe­cif­ic awards. You also have your typ­i­cal week­ly resets to look for­ward to.
