Bungie is about to end its support for the last generation consoles of "Destiny." The video game company officially announced that they are going to stop releasing new updates for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 starting Aug. 16.

The End Of 'Destiny' Updates For Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3

The news is quite expected after Bungie claimed that the "Rise of Iron" update for "Destiny" will not be rolled out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation. However, upon hearing the news, it still makes fans sad.

It has been two years since Bungie continuously gives support for "Destiny" on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as per Segment Next.

The History Of Expansion Packs

In fact, when Bungie released "Destiny" in September 2014, it became one of the most popular first person video games.

Bungie revealed two DLC for "Destiny" for game consoles and the third one was the biggest of them all.

The "Taken King" expansion pack changed "Destiny" gameplay on a whole new level that spiced up the title even more that almost brought it to be critically acclaimed.

The fourth DLC for "Destiny," which is the "Rise of Iron" was then announced, but, sadly, it won't be supported on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as confirmed by Community Manager Eric Osborne.

The Announcement & Possible Import

Starting Aug. 16, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will stop receiving "Destiny" updates, according to Daily Express.

"On this date, the Account Import process will become available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Consoles. From this date forward, progression will no longer be shared between console generations within the same console family," a Bungie post read.

But, Bungie also cleared that "Destiny" gamers and users of the old consoles can import their game development and characters when they buy "Rise of Iron" using the same units.

PlayStation 3 users can import their "Destiny" advancement to PlayStation 4 and the same thing can work for Xbox owners.

Bungie, too, clarified that the special in-game events will still be active until the end of last generation support.
