Two Destiny Accounts, to for purchases another to play
have been buying my extensions with one psn account and via gamesharing playing the game in another account.
1 account to buy the stuff
1 account to play the stuff
I’ve realised now the hard way that apparently some content will not work via gamesharing (season access and Dungeon keys) as it gets pegged to the first login.
[quote]Logging into Destiny 2 on any platform will instantly unlock Season Passes acquired from a Destiny 2 expansion bundle, even if no characters have been created on that platform or account yet.[/quote]
So I’ve bought the new expansion and logged in the game in my purchase account, and as per quote the season pass got assigned to that account.
I’ve requested a refund, and made the purchase again.
This second purchase attempt the first login was on the paying account, but season pass still not available.
3 hypothesis in mind mind:
1) the refund does not remove the season pass from the first account and is there forever
2) the quoted text is wrong and the season pass is only available to the account that makes the purchase
3) some other glitch happened and this is a strange case…
Any thoughts? Am I misinterpreting the quote?
IfI buy the new extension in my playing account I need to have an instance of D2 installed from my playing account for new content and another instance from my purchasing account for all previous years content…
Maybe my fault, but when you move countries and need to create new PSN accounts to use local stores we get into this messy cases…

Yes, the quote is for players with cross save active.
The season passes and dungeon keys are always given to the purchasing account, but in the case of having cross-save active the passes are applied to your active profile for that regardless. So if you had cross-save active (ie Xbox & PS) with PS as your active characters and you then bought the annual pass edition, the passes/dungeon keys are applied to your PS destiny account so if you ever deactivated cross-save your dormant xbox destiny 2 account wouldn't have access to either.
In order for your playing account to have the dungeon key and season passes, you'll need to purchase them on that account
