Destiny 2 BIOS Fix for Ryzen 3000 CPUs Delayed without ETA

By on Jul 22, 2019 at 10:14 am. Filed in News under Destiny 2.

Two weeks after discovering that Destiny 2 won't run on AMD's new Ryzen 3000 processors, there's still no fix in sight.

As of this writing, it has been 15 days since AMD released its new third-generation Ryzen 3000 series of CPUs into the world. It has been roughly 14 and a half days since it was discovered that Destiny 2 won’t run on any of AMD’s flagship series of processors. While a bug was identified quickly, and promises of a Destiny 2 Ryzen 3000 fix were almost immediate, it has been radio silence since then. For those looking for an update on when they may be able to play their favorite looter-shooter on their new hardware, the news is not good.

No News is Not Good News

While there has been little official news about the status of any impending Destiny 2 fix, the AMD subreddit has been a steady source of updates, and accompanying frustration. After initial reports about a week ago stipulated that a BIOS update was just around the corner, bugs in the code provided by AMD to third-party motherboard manufacturers, have brought progress to a screeching halt.

Matthew works in the motherboard department at Gigabyte and has been very involved on Reddit, providing updates to all manner of issues related to AMD’s new launch. Alongside AMD’s own Technical Marketing expert Robert, he’s been keeping the community apprised of the situation. Unfortunately, as of just about an hour ago, no news regarding the timing of a fix to allow Destiny 2 to run on third-gen Ryzen CPUs is available.

Whether we like it or not, we’ve stepped into a war with Intel…

With another Iron Banner event beginning tomorrow and the Solstice of Heroes event just around the corner, players are getting antsy. There are even folks who have their shiny new AMD processors ready to be put into their system but are holding off until the all-clear has been given.

Even I have had to make sure that Destiny 2 is still playable on my older Intel CPU so that I won’t miss out on anything important. Here’s hoping that things will be fixed before Destiny 2‘s next expansion, Shadowkeep, is released in September, otherwise, there may be hell to pay for both AMD and Bungie.

As soon as we hear any positive news about a Destiny 2 Ryzen 3000 fix, we’ll be sure to let you know.
