When Season of the Splicer went online last week, some players noticed cross-play also was turned on for Destiny 2. While this was a mistake according to Bungie, it looks like players didn't have to wait long to officially check out the feature, as the dev team have announced it will be tested next week.

In this week's "This Week at Bungie," the team behind Destiny 2 detailed the anticipated release of the upcoming Vault of Glass raid, which is slated to kick off tomorrow morning. However, in the update Bungie let it be known it was officially testing the  cross-play feature soon, which was enabled a bit too early when Season 14 went live. How soon? Next week, in fact.

"In the early hours of Season of the Splicer, a few of you got your first unfiltered taste of Cross Play. Even though this was caused by a bug, we saw players mingling between platforms, which was awesome! That said, we needed to smash that bug like a subscribe button to get our release back on track. While our current goal is for Cross Play to ship in Season 15, we have a list of things to do before it’s ready, one of which is a Beta starting early next week. "

Starting on May 25th and running through the 27th, the cross play beta test will be live on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam and Stadia, allowing players across platforms to jump into Vanguard Strikes with their Guardian friends across any platform. Bungie will be giving players a unique emblem to any player that completes three strikes throughout the beta period.

Season of the Splicer hit Destiny 2 last week, bringing with it a new 6-player Override activity, as well as Expunge, its weekly pinnacle mission. OG Destiny's Vault of Glass raid a major feature of the new season, opening to players on May 22nd with a new title belt to get.
