The Destiny 2 The Lie quest bug should hopefully be fixed in patches deployed throughout the remainder of this week, Bungie has confirmed.
“Tomorrow (May 20) at 10 AM PDT [or 3.00 am AEST, 21 May], Destiny 2 will undergo background maintenance,” the developer initially advised. “No downtime is expected. This will prepare us for Hotfix 220.127.116.11 releasing on May 21 that will resolve “The Lie” quest issue with opening the Warmind door.”
That patch has already been deployed, and seemingly successfully, as Bungie will continue to patch the issue overnight.
“Tomorrow (May 21) at 9 AM PDT [or 2.00 am AEST, 22 May], Destiny 2 will undergo maintenance for Hotfix 18.104.22.168 that’ll include a fix for “The Lie” quest,” Bungie later advised. “Players will be removed from activities at 9:45 AM and be unable to log in until 10 AM [or 3.00 am AEST, 22 May].”
The Lie questline is necessary to obtain the Felwinter’s Lie Exotic shotgun. It started with a quest step to 9,000,000 Public Events and was to end in a final mission; said mission has a bug that means it cannot be completed. A fix has not yet been deployed.
Destiny 2 is out now on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia where available.
