Destiny 2 refuses to launch after the most recent update (22.214.171.124). I click the play button only to be met with a "game is running" prompt next to it, and then after about 5 seconds the play button lights up again and I'm left with Destiny 2 not having opened at all. I don't know what to do to resolve this, especially since the game was working fine about 2 hours ago. I have checked for duplicate programs using the task manager, scanned and repaired the game, tested for compatibility issues, run antivirus and malware programs, reset winsock settings (as suggested by another user), and restarted my computer multiple times. The only things I haven't tried that I can think of would be uninstalling and then reinstalling, or perhaps scanning the hard drive that Destiny 2 is stored on, both of which I'm waiting to try in case there's a simpler solution to this issue. PC specs, in case they are relevant: Intel Core i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50 GHz 8GB RAM GeForce 940MX Windows 10 (latest version)
I've had a similar problem since this update launched - I started updating since May 21, 3pm EST and it is not May 22 8:33pm EST and it's still stuck on "Initializing". Hasn't moved a bit. I uninstalled Blizzard and Destiny 2, removed all cache and files, restarted my computer, reinstalled everything, and still no progress.
Hey Magnaavis. Appreciate you reporting this. You may want to try opening the battle.net launcher "Settings" and change the "When I open a game" option to "close the battle.net launcher completely" option. Some players have suggested disabling the "Always require authenticator for login" option in your Blizzard account settings.
