Bungie has tried to draw a line under the recent controversy surrounding a Destiny 2 community member accused of leaking upcoming game details.
In a new statement shared by TwitterThe studio said it had “irrefutable evidence”, including “video recordings, verified messages and pictures”, about a man who leaked privileged information shared over the course of “many years”.
The issue first came to light last week, when Bungie said it faced a “breach of trust” after identifying a leaker among the small group of community members who are sometimes asked to provide feedback on games and upcoming releases. Used to be invited to his studio to share plans.
It was at this time that popular Twitch streamer Akugan was suddenly banned, causing an uproar among fellow Destiny streamers and fans.
For its part, Accugen said “nothing leaked” in a series of messages posted on Twitter. “People are quick to attack, please go back to your miserable lives.”
Yesterday, Accugen released more tweets – which appears to have inspired Bungie’s latest response.
“All I know is that the company made a huge mistake and I will clear my name,” Ekugan wroteSharing a screenshot of the nearly 20,000 hours he spent streaming Destiny 2 before his ban took effect.
“People ask why I quit? I have been banned during the Grand Master season, I have been forced to quit and I have to tell my audience. People are putting two and two together from his statement. You basically wanted to witch hunt me because you think I’m guilty.”
Bungie said today: “We are deeply disappointed to learn of this information and wish that things had been different with this individual. We do not take these actions lightly, and we are confident in our judgment.
“This is our last communication on this matter.”
