Destiny 2 players should be busy getting started on their Moments of Triumph challenges, but apparently some PC players are experiencing a very unfortunate problem. According to recent reports from the community, PC users who upgrade to the Ryzen 3000 series CPU can no longer get Destiny 2 to run.
Reddit user Trinsikk started the thread reporting the issue and it has blown up with discussions and troubleshooting in the following hours. At this point, there doesn't seem to be a fix and no other Ruzen 3000 build owners have jumped in to contradict the reported issue. At this time, there hasn't been any official word from the Destiny 2 team in response to the reports.
The original Reddit post follows...
"Destiny does not work on pc with the new Ryzen 3000 series Cpu's. After clicking the play button on battlenet it says the game is running and the destiny 2 exe will show up in task manager but only shows that its using 5-10% cpu but it never will start. A couple threads have popped up on the bungie forums and it seems to be affecting all variants of motherboard /ryzen 3000 setups. Tried reinstalling windows 3 times over with full formats between and reinstalling drivers each time. Bungie halp
Edit: just to clear it up Specs : mb: Asus crosshair hero viii Cpu :Ryzen 9 3900x no oc Gpu : Msi RTX 2080 Ram: Corsair vengeance Rgb 3466-cl 16"
The thread has already filled up with other PC users saying they were planning to buy the new CPU, but are going to wait instead. We expect to hear about some kind of fix for the issue, or at least a response, sometime in the near future, so definitely report back to find out when it's safe to make the upgrade if you are on the market for some more power.
