Bungie Rejects Steam Deck’s Linux, Threatens To Ban Destiny 2 Players There

When does Bungie allow? Lot 2 are you coming to Valve’s Steam Deck handheld gaming PC? It seems the answer is never – because Sony’s future subsidiary has published a help page that not only says that the game is not supported, but threatens to ban potential Steam Deck players (via Wario64

The help page has a new section titled “Steam Deck and Destiny 2” which reads:

Destiny 2 is not supported to play on the Steam Deck or on any system using Steam Play’s Proton unless Windows is installed and running. Players attempting to launch Destiny 2 on the Steam Deck via SteamOS or Proton will not be able to enter the game and will be returned to their game library after a short time.

Players attempting to circumvent Destiny 2’s incompatibility will be banned from play.

We’ve been asking Bungie for five months now if it could support Steam Deck and Linux more broadly, which seemed like a reasonable question for several reasons:

I was looking forward to playing it that way. But the last message we got from Bungie about Steam Deck and Proton was on October 3rd and contained no answers. Now the answer seems to be “we only run on Windows”.

To be fair, Bungie isn’t alone in turning down the Steam Deck without necessarily giving a satisfying explanation – Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney explained to me why Fortnite will not update for the Steam Deck last month, although Epic’s own Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC) claims that game developers can enable it with “just a few clicks”.

And while there’s a hint that EA’s rival Apex Legends could come to the Deck, and Elden Ring works on Deck (including online modes) despite using anti-cheat, it’s also true that many other top multiplayer games haven’t fully come out yet.

Bungie and Valve did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
