With the arrival of the 2.50 update for the PS4 last night - bringing with it the long awaited Suspend and Resume function - I fired up Destiny to see if it was compatible with the new functionality, although I didn't hold out much hope given it's an online only game. But being the eternal optimist that I am, I thought maybe the game might allow suspension while in orbit, or in Destiny's social hub, The Tower.
But then later today along came the Bungie Weekly Update, which brought with it this happy news:
"The 2.50 Firmware update for the PlayStation 4 will implement a Suspend and Resume function on 3/26. This function will not work with Destiny at this time. Functionality for the Suspend and Resume feature will be enabled for the 1.1.2 Update."
We won't have too long to wait until 1.1.2 either, with Bungie also announcing today the update is scheduled for some time in April.
It'll be interesting to see how the functionality is handled, clearly we won't be able to suspend during Strikes and Raids, but perhaps in orbit and/or The Tower.
Time will tell. Until then, happy hunting Guardians.
