Destiny 2 players have been driven mad by an inordinately complicated puzzle at Niobe Labs this week. It’s already taken longer to solve than most any raid in the game’s history, and the end still isn’t in sight.

It’s not a special branch. It’s developed along with every other version of the game.” That’s the sort of reassuring platitude we’ve gotten used to hearing about PC development of AAA games, but hey – it’s nice to hear.
