Bungie has responded to the community with a final decision amid the Destiny 2 leak saga, stating that they have found “irrefutable evidence” to back their case against content creator Ekuegan.

The Destiny 2 community and Bungie have been at odds with one another due to a serious controversy surrounding new leaks after a recent confidential summit. The summit invited certain content creators and community members to sneak a peek at the future of Destiny, with someone then leaking photos and information from it after the fact.

After the leaks were sent out to social media and various Discord servers, mostly leaks pertaining to Season of the Deep, Bungie issued a statement about the breach of trust this had caused, warning that they may not be able to run summits again. Bungie then turned their attention towards streamer and content creator Ekuegan as the alleged culprit of the leaks.

Ekuegan has since vehemently denied Bungie’s accusations, claiming that they’ve “made a huge mistake and will clear (his) name”. Many community members have come to support the streamer, believing that they are innocent despite the developer’s claims.
