"Destiny 2" players who are eager to get their hands on Leviathan Raid's Prestige Mode will have to wait for a while longer. Bungie took to their official website to announce that it has been delayed to a date next week, during which fans and players can take the new mode for a test drive. According to Gamespot, the studio has discovered a "serious bug" that has caused them to delay the release of Leviathan Raid's Prestige Mode. The post from Bungie indicated that the "serious bug" prevented the Prestige Mode to be as difficult as it is intended to be and therefore, the studio needed more time to work it out.

It led them to decide to move the launch of the mode to Wednesday, October 18 at 10 a.m. PT.

Bug related to exploit that makes it easy to kill Calus?

Bungie did not say what kind of "serious bug" plagued the Leviathan Raid's Prestige Mode, causing them to delay the launch for Wednesday next week. However, some players and fans of "Destiny 2" have speculated that it may be related to the exploit that enabled them to effortlessly defeat Calus. Right now, players are still anticipating what new features the Prestige Mode will bring, or how it will differ from the regular version of the Leviathan Raid. However, Bungie did promise that there will be some "mechanical changes" as well as "unique rewards."
