How to Play Destiny 2 Lightfall on XBox, Can’t Start Issue Fix

In a very refreshing move, Bungie, the game devs behind Destiny 2, have been very proactive and have provided a step-by-step method on how to get the game running normally. As such, it’s probably best if you do this before the update goes live and servers are back up after maintenance, but it shouldn’t matter if you do it afterward. So let’s see how to do this.

  • Step #1: If Destiny 2 is already running, quit and exit the game.
  • Step #2: Find and select the Destiny 2 game icon.
  • Step #3: Press the Menu button.
  • Step #4: Choose the “Manage game and add-ons” option.
  • Step #5: Select Destiny 2 here.
  • Step #6: Unselect the following add-ons: Destiny 2: Forsaken – Black Armory, Destiny 2: Forsaken – Joker’s Wild, Destiny 2: Forsaken – Penumbra, Destiny 2: Forsaken Annual Pass, Expansion I: Curse of Osiris, and Expansion II: Warmind.
  • Step #7: After that, select the “Save changes” option.
  • Step #8: These add-ons are then going to be uninstalled.
  • Step #9: When the uninstallation process is complete, launch Destiny 2 again.

As this is an official fix by Bungie, the game should now work on Xbox Series X|S devices. But just in case it doesn’t, you should contact Bungie Support by visiting this link.
