Shacknews Dump - February 12, 2021

It's an Epic week of new Destiny seasons, Cyberpunk hacks, and more wild news from around the gaming industry on this week's Shacknews Dump.


Welcome to Friday, friends. We made it, but there’s just a little bit of unfinished business left. Well, we here at Shacknews are all about popping a squat and taking care of business once and for all. Between Destiny 2’s new Season of the Chosen, CDPR’s trolling-est woes, and plenty more, we intend to unleash some final business to cap off your week on the Shacknews Dump.

On this February 12 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we’ve got Destiny 2 to talk. Season of the Chosen has launched, giving the players plenty more to do in a new story arc in which a foolish Cabal empress threatens the wrong community of Light-based loot grinders. We also talk about the record time in which trolls hacked CDPR and then sold off code related to its games, because holy heck, that was fast.

Tune into the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET as we open up the Shacknews Dump to talk about these and other hot news stories in the gaming industry. You can also catch the video just below.
