AMD’s new Ryzen 3000-series processors don’t seem to be compatible with loot shooter Destiny 2. The CPUs themselves are performing great, but they aren’t affable with the Bungie game.
When the game is launched, Battle.net displays the game as running, but it’ll never actually load. The game appears in the Task Manager for a brief duration but quickly disappears.
Players have complained and reported this flaw on the Destiny and AMD subreddits, and on the game’s forums, but so far there doesn’t appear to be a response. Neither AMD nor Bungie has commented on this and there doesn’t appear to be a fix. This issue is present in every Ryzen 3000 series variant. This has already occurred before, with Destiny 2 crashing majorly at launch with the older AMD Phenom II processors.
For Destiny 2 players, sticking to your current processor is the best bet. Hopefully, there’s an ETA on the fix soon.
