Bungie’s Crucible patch out next week with House of Wolves?
After hyping up the release of update 1.2.0 for Destiny after 10 AM PST on May 12th, Bungie revealed at the last moment that it would in fact not be deployed.
In fact, according to the developer on Twitter, “Our patch schedule for House of Wolves has changed slightly. 1.2.0 will not deploy today. Please stand by for more information. Game on.”
The patch schedule changing slightly for House of Wolves is rather odd. Many have interpreted this to mean that next week’s patch – which initiates the final delivery of House of Wolves – could be delayed as well, leading to the expansion’s delay. Then again, it’s possible that update 1.2.0 lands alongside next week’s update in time for House of Wolves.
Update 1.2.0 was no small update either. It was meant to introduce several changes and improvements to the Crucible mode, including increased reputation and marks for matches, better balanced rewards for top players, a daily Crucible objective for guaranteed rewards and much more.
Destiny’s House of Wolves will be out on May 19th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. Even if it is delayed, hopefully Bungie won’t push its release too far back.
