To learn more about the reasoning behind these changes, you can check out the full breakdown from Design Lead Josh Kulinski here.  

Save your Stadia Characters

Destiny 2 players whose main characters are from Stadia should set up Cross Save with another platform so they do not lose access to their characters after the shutdown on January 18, 2023. Additionally, after January 18, players with Google Stadia as their primary account should not deactivate Cross Save for any reason. Doing so will result in players completely losing access to their characters. 

For more information, please see Bungie’s Save Your Stadia Characters article.

Stadia players who encounter issues accessing their characters once they set up Cross Save should see this Stadia Cross Save Troubleshooting Guide

Stadia Account Links

Players who have Stadia accounts linked to their profiles who do not have their Stadia characters set as their active Cross Save do not need to unlink their Stadia accounts from their profile prior to the shutdown of the platform. Inactive Stadia account links will be automatically removed from player profiles after January 18, 2023. 

Players who intended to set their Stadia characters as their active Cross Save prior to the shutdown but encountered issues should see our Stadia Cross Save Troubleshooting Guide linked above.
