Bungie is finally improving Destiny 2’s PvP
Destiny 2’s most recent balance patch went live and while it wasn’t a complete overhaul of the game’s weapon meta, it did firm things up. The respawn timer was increased after a team wipe which should reward individual performance more than Destiny 1 did. Also, some of the more powerful firearms received nerfs such as increased recoil or reduced magazine sizes which will make using them less desirable in Crucible.

In a Tumblr post from yesterday, Bungie revealed that Trials of Osiris is getting some changes in season 15. Though Blackburn doesn’t elaborate on the specifics of this change, he promises to share more details during the Aug. 24 Livestream event.

Bungie has been making improvements to Destiny 2’s PvP for the past year, in anticipation of putting more time into creating new content.
When we upgraded our engine with Beyond Light it means we had to hand port all of our Destiny 2 maps and modes. So, while it may seem from the outside like we’re just pushing a button there’s a significant lift from the team to get more of this content back in rotation.

In order to get new weapons onto the playing field quickly, Bungie will un-deplete Crucible maps that went away last year. By shifting Destiny 2’s engine in 2018, it took more work than players might expect to bring them back into rotation this season.
Destiny 2 players will have the chance to explore uncharted territory for the first time in more than one year, thanks to 3 new map types: a remake, an old Destiny map, and a brand-new world.
Bungie’s Crucible team is working on remixing or remaking the Capture the Flag-type mode “Rift” from Destiny.
