Bungie is offering a one-time name change to Destiny 2 players

Destiny 2 Signal Intercepted

The launch of the new Witch Queen expansion has offered a ton of different gameplay elements to explore in Destiny 2. And as with any game that’s been around for a number of years, there are flaws and complaints that pile up. Players have had a number of issues over the years, and Bungie has tried to address them in some way. One of the more minor complaints with online games such as this concerns usernames. WHen you make your account, sometimes you choose a name you end up hating. That’s a pretty common problem in MMOs and other venues. But now, Bungie is helping change that in their flagship game.

And with so many players returning to the game after a hiatus thanks to the expansion, there’s a renewed demand to be able to change names. That’s not something that has been possible since Bungie IDs came into the mix. But now, there’s a way around it. The announcement was made in a tweet from the official Bungie Twitter account. And when the change goes live, you can pretty simply claim that new username you’ve always wanted.

The announcement was met with high praise, especially from console players. There has been a big problem with console gamertags being stuck for a long time. The Destiny 2 name change will be an option for all players. If you’re on console, you won’t be changing your gamertag, rather your Bungie ID. So basically, it’s your in-game name associated with your Bungie account that’s changing. So don’t worry about losing that gamertag you like.

If you want to make a change head to Bungie’s website starting at 9 am PT on March 10, 2022. And it’s possible that this is a limited-time offer, so jump on it while you can.
