When tragedy struck and the call went out to pitch in, let it be said that the Destiny community stepped up to help. As part of a fundraiser with Bungie, profits from a sale of in-game and real-world gear were donated to Direct Relief for the aid and recovery of Nepal earthquake victims. Along with funds from Activision, the drive raised over a million dollars that is now going out to assist the rebuilding of the region.
“This was an astounding act of generosity on the part of Bungie and the larger Bungie community,” Direct Relief CEO Thomas Tighe said, “and we at Direct Relief are deeply grateful — beyond what can be expressed in words.”
The studio’s weekly update newsletter went on to encourage players to help track down cheaters and mentioned a recent hotfix that patched up a couple of issues from the recent expansion.
