The first Destiny 2 6v6 multiplayer event was supposed to be going live next week, however it has unfortunately been delayed due to a “late-breaking issue.” A bug is preventing the 6v6 mode from being featured, which now means players will have Rumble free-for-all to play instead.
Bungie’s Comzo explained announced the delay in a forum post:
Iron Banner 6v6 is Being Postponed
Due to a late-breaking issue that’s been discovered through internal testing, Iron Banner 6v6 is being postponed.
We’ve found that all players in 6v6 matches are returned to Orbit with ANTEATER errors when reaching certain score and timer conditions. We are actively working on a fix for this issue, but will not be able to release this by April 10.
As such, Rumble will be replacing Iron Banner next week as the featured gametype in the Weekly Crucible playlist. As noted in yesterday’s blog update, Rumble will now feature 6-player Free-for-all with additional spawn fixes coming in Hotfix 126.96.36.199 on Tuesday. Iron Banner will return as soon as we can issue a fix. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Are you sad to see Destiny 2 6v6 multiplayer delayed? Is Rumble good enough for now? Let us know.
