While plenty of titles are compatible with Valve’s Steam Deck, Bungie has already said that Destiny 2 is not one of them. And now, Bungie has revealed that trying to play Destiny 2 on Steam Deck can get you banned!
This news comes to us courtesy of prolific Twitter user @Wario64. He pointed out how Bungie’s own help site spells out a pretty bleak warning for players.
The message couldn’t be more clear. “Destiny 2 is not supported for play on the Steam Deck or on any system utilizing Steam Play’s Proton unless Windows is installed and running. Players who attempt to launch Destiny 2 on the Steam Deck through SteamOS or Proton will be unable to enter the game and will be returned to their game library after a short time. Players who attempt to bypass Destiny 2 incompatibility will be met with a game ban.”
While this news is disappointing, it’s not exactly surprising. Some other high-profile games such as Fortnite will not be compatible due to concerns about both cheating and overall game compatibility.
Do you think Bungie is being reasonable here, or should players be able to play Destiny 2 on their Steam Deck? Let us know in the comments!
