Xbox's Phil Spencer Will Play Destiny 2 With Bungie Today, Here's How You Can Join Him

Now's your chance to play Destiny 2 with Phil Spencer.


As the leader of Xbox, Phil Spencer is a very busy man, but he still finds time to play games. One of his favorites is the Destiny franchise. Back in 2017, he said he had spent more than 700 hours playing the sci-fi shooter. Now, with Sony's exclusivity arrangement with the game nearly at an end and cross-save in place, Bungie has announced a special Destiny livestream event featuring none other than Spencer.

On Tuesday, September 10, Spencer will play Destiny 2 alongside Bungie CEO Pete Parsons during a multi-hour livestream from 3 PM to 5 PM PT. Parsons and Spencer will team up to play the Destiny 2 Heroic Strike playlist. That means they'll be in public matchmaking, so you'll have a chance to be their third squad member.

Destiny 2's next expansion, Shadowkeep, launches on October 1 for PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Recently, Bungie announced plans to introduce a Fortnite-style battle pass in Destiny 2 timed with the release of Shadowkeep. That will also mark the end of the aforementioned arrangement that sees PS4-exclusive content released for the game. In the future, all content will be available from the start on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, rather than players on the latter two platforms having to wait upwards of a year for it.
