Six months after Destiny 2 implemented the Bungie Name system, players are finally getting the chance to change their in-game name. Bungie announced on its Twitter that players would get a one-time opportunity to adjust their Bungie Name–through their Bungie web account. This is already available since Hotfix 184.108.40.206 has launched in Destiny 2 already.
Bungie Names were generated for all Destiny 2 players when crossplay became available at the beginning of Season 15 in August 2021, but users didn’t have choice over their handles. Anyone playing Destiny 2 on multiple platforms, like PC and PlayStation, could choose which of these names would become their permanent Bungie Name–but were stuck with whatever name they’d chosen to for their PlayStation account or PC character. Bungie initially said players could change their generated names last winter, but the developer randomly decided that players would have a singular opportunity to create a new Bungie Name in Season 16.
Bungie did say this is the only name change they can speak of at this time. There are not many more details regarding the name change–like if there is a window of time to adjust the number.
