Destiny 2 on PC: Some streaming, capture programs will not be compatible


Bungie cracks down on potential methods of cheating.

Destiny 2‘s PC version will not support certain streaming and capture programs in an effort to crack down on cheating, developer Bungie recently confirmed.

“To help ensure that every player will have a fair shot at fun and glory in Destiny 2 on PC, we resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client,” Bungie confirmed in a new blog post. “This may result in incompatibility between Destiny 2 PC and the features of common third-party applications.”

Streaming and capture programs like OBS, XSplit, Dxtory, Razer Cortex and Fraps will not work because of the limitations. OBS and XSplit will function in windowed and borderless fullscreen but not exclusive fullscreen mode.

Hardware capture through Elgato, AVerMedia, NVIDIA and via programs like NVIDIA Shadowplay and AMD ReLive will work as normal.

Third-party apps “which rely on the use of screen overlays are generally not compatible with Destiny 2,” Bungie’s post continues. This includes voice communication programs like Discord and Mumble, and framerate and stats apps like EVGA Precision XOC, MSi Afterburner and Fraps.

Destiny 2 heads to Xbox One and PS4 on 6 September, followed by a release on Windows PC on 24 October. A PC beta is scheduled for 28 August.
