[Updated] Destiny 2 missing licenses & delayed silver purchases issues being looked into
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on May 7, 2022) follows:
Destiny arrived in 2014 as a new franchise from Bungie (original creators of Halo). The game was thought of as a ‘service’ that would constantly receive new content.
Some years later Destiny 2 arrived as the direct sequel to the game. Like its predecessor, Destiny 2 is an FPS shooter-looter with an MMO style that seeks to offer a living world where there is always something to do.
The world of Destiny 2 is full of challenges, bosses, raids, and more. Being a shooter-looter, completing challenges successfully will offer better equipment, weapons, and items.
The Destiny franchise also inherits the gunplay experience seen in the original Halo games. This is one of the best-rated in the FPS game industry.
However, currently some players are facing a couple of issues. First, some are unable to access the game due to missing licenses. Also, others are experiencing a delay in their silver purchases (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).
Destiny 2 missing licenses, delay in silver purchases
According to multiple reports, Destiny 2 licenses are suddenly missing for some players. This problem requires a complete uninstall and reinstall of the game if you want to play again (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).
So glad I un installed the game now I have to wait for over a 100g download again because you guys screwed up my licenses.
Meanwhile, there is also an issue that directly impacts Silver (in-game currency). Apparently, the amount of Silver that some Destiny 2 players have is displayed incorrectly.
Will I finally get my silver back?
Players can purchase Silver with real money. But, some are facing an issue where the Silver purchased is significantly delayed.
Seems to happen more recently, takes a while get through but get it in the end , before it instant feel like some coding got changed by accident.
Bungie team already aware
The Bungie team is already aware of both issues and is working on resolving them.
We are continuing to investigate issues causing players to encounter missing licenses, delayed Silver purchases, or incorrect Silver balances on their accounts.
In the meantime, the company recommends that players do not attempt to purchase Silver while the glitch is present. In case they have bought Silver and it has not reached their accounts, it is advisable to avoid repeating the operation.
Players encountering delays in receiving purchases should exercise caution as all Silver or game purchases initiated during a delay may successfully complete once the errors have resolved. Players should not attempt multiple Silver or other purchases until the delay is resolved to prevent making more purchases than intended.
On the other hand, if your Silver amounts are displayed incorrectly, the company recommends resetting the game.
Players encountering incorrect Silver balances or missing game licenses may need to restart Destiny once the services issues have resolved to refresh their in-game Silver balances and game licenses.
We will update this story as events unfold.
