Bungie Isn’t Adding Paid Ammo Packs to Destiny

Following a VG247 report earlier today that suggested Bungie would be adding paid ammo packs to Destiny, Activision sent a response to Game Informer, saying, “We’re not doing that.”

One upcoming change that’s happening is another build of Bungie.net this week. With the new build, any Destiny character will be accessible by default through the Advisor endpoint. If you don’t want to be a part of this, Bungie explained that there will be different privacy settings:

In order to expose Advisors publicly, we wanted to also allow people to hide themselves from that exposure if they so desire. In doing so, we’ve built Destiny privacy settings into your account. Once we deploy this build, users will be able to go to their Settings -> Privacy page and toggle whether they want their non-equipped Inventory (private by default), historical stats (public by default), and advisor data (public by default) to be visible by other users or anonymously.

We anticipate that more settings will be added in the future, but these three will serve our most immediate needs.

You can read more on these changes by heading over to the Bungie forums.

Last week, Bungie announced that the February Destiny update will add the new Crimson Days event, with the Iron Banner returning on January 26.

A report from Kotaku also suggested Destiny 2 was delayed out of its planned September 2016 release window.
