Just in case you’re wondering why this week’s Iron Banner tournament has not appeared in Destiny yet, Bungie has confirmed that the tournament has been cancelled. The latest Iron Banner tournament was scheduled to go live today but due to the problems that multiplayer events have been facing in Destiny for the past few days Bungie has decided to cancel this week’s Iron Banner.
Bungie sent out the confirmation over Twitter, saying that it’s cancelling Iron Banner due to the problems with multiplayer events that have surfaced since the past week.
This week’s Iron Banner tournament was scheduled to begin at 1 pm ET and it would have run through June 28th. Fans of the game were naturally looking forward to its return. Bungie brought back Iron Banner at the end of last month after it fixed an unlimited ammo exploit.
These problems are related to matchmaking and they were quite evident in the Trials of Osiris multiplayer event over the weekend. Bungie says that due to the very same issue it’s cancelling Iron Banner for this week. There’s no word as yet from the developer on how long it’s going to take for these issues to be fixed, and when the next Iron Banner tournament will begin.
