Destiny’s ‘Crimson Days’ Event Cancelled to Focus on ‘Exciting’ Next Update
Bungie revealed on their weekly blog that the Valentine’s Day themed event “Crimson Days” will not be coming back in 2017. While players and teammates won’t be able to take advantage of the buffs the event offers, the developer assured fans that it’s for a good reason.
“Crimson Days will not be making a return this year. We enjoyed adding some gunfire to your date night, but we have other plans. Instead, we’re dedicating our efforts to delivering different things for you to play.”
Crimson Days created a temporary new multiplayer mode called Crimson Doubles. The goal of this 2-on-2 mode was to eliminate the duo on the other team, and the first to achieve this goal five times would win an event-specific reward. These goodies included new shaders, emblems, and Ghost Shells. Losing your partner within this mode granted the surviving player the “Broken Heart” buff that, when received, increased statistics for maximum armor, recovery, agility, and handling speed.
Bungie’s “Live Team”, who organizes events like Crimson Days, teased Destiny’s next update, promising that the additions would be substantial. The post also alluded to a “springtime” release window and went on to establish Bungie’s confidence in the forthcoming update.
“Last week at Bungie, we teased that you haven’t heard the last from the Live Team. Their next content update is taking shape. We’re super excited to tell you about it – but not so excited that we’ll jump the gun,” Bungie stated. “It’s rarely our policy to issue guarantees about things that are not yet certified for download. Given the work that is being done behind the scenes, however, we feel like we can start to call the shot.”
It sounds like this next update will be quite the bee’s knees for Destiny players. We’ll keep you informed when more information becomes available. In the meantime, you can check out Bungie’s full blog post HERE.
