“One of the unfortunate consequences of working from home is that we did not have access to our PC compatibility lab to do in-depth testing of the performance impact of the changes we made. As a result of this, the update introduced a regrettable performance drop on some PC configurations. “
Bungie’s painstaking work to fix the bug
Given this situation, The process of re-optimizing the title has been a very laborious job for which Bungie has had to contract the services of an external company and do the tests in the same game, which is why it took so long to fix it.
