"Destiny" creator Bungie officially announced that they will stop supporting legacy consoles, specifically Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, starting this week. Bungie warned players that all future updates and expansions will only be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

'Destiny' Stops Supports On Legacy Consoles

IGN reported that Destiny will no longer support game updates and content releases on legacy consoles. However, "Taken King" will still be available on legacy consoles though access may be limited.

"The Trials of Osiris" and "Iron Banner" will no longer be available on the legacy consoles as well. Players who would like to continue with the games should upgrade to the latest consoles and purchase "Rise of Iron" when released.

Reports say that this also goes true for live events such as "Festival of the Lost," "Crimson Days" and the "Sparrow Racing League."

Speaking to IGN, "Destiny" director Christopher Barret said that most players are currently in the gen consoles already.

Since they have to eliminate some things just to support the upgrade in legacy consoles, the "Destiny" team has decided to just drop the support.

Meanwhile, "Destiny" events and online features such as Heroic Missions and Strikes, Daily and Weekly Crucible Challenges, Raids and Boss Challenges, Prison of Elders and Challenge of Elders events, and Armsday Orders and Test Weapons missions will still be available for legacy console players in August.

However, Agent of the Nine Xure will no longer sell exotic weapons and armor to legacy console players come August. Items like Engrams, Vehicle Upgrades and Motes of Light will still be sold across all platforms.

Destiny's" next major expansion, "Rise of Iron" will cost $30 when launched digitally for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 20. Check out the trailer of "Destiny: Rise of Iron" in the video below.
