Destiny on Legacy Consoles

Destiny: Rise of Iron will be available exclusively on current generation consoles – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. From here on out, we’ll be referring to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 as Legacy Consoles. If you’re using a Legacy Console to play Destiny, you’ll first need to upgrade your console.
Our goal is always to bring every player from this awesome community along for the ride as we continue the story of Destiny, but we will also continue to support players who elect not to upgrade their console hardware. To accompany the reveal of Rise of Iron, the Destiny Player Support team has published a suite of information to guide those players. Up to this point, player progression between current and Legacy Consoles in the same family has been shared by each account. This summer, that experience will fork onto two separate paths that will no longer share progression.
In the coming weeks, we’ll provide more information on the impending deadlines for this conversion. To learn more about how you can import a player from a Legacy Console to a current console, read the Guided Support pages. The Legacy Console Guided Support covers the following:
  • Destiny Events and Activities Availability
  • Changes to Eververse Trading Co. and Silver Purchases
  • Legacy Console FAQ
  • Upgrading from a Legacy Console
If you have other questions, talk to us on the #Help forum.
We’ll hope you’ll accompany us on the next leg of the journey.
