Destiny‘s rare item merchant, Xur, Agent of the Nine, will stick around a little longer because of the recent connectivity issues with Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, Bungie has announced.
“We understand that Xur has been hard to reach for a lot of you this weekend, so we’re going to extend his stay,” Bungie’s community manager David “Deej” Dague said on the game’s official forums. “Our current plan is to allow him to remain in the Tower with his current inventory until Monday night at 10pm PST, just before the weekly reset.”
Dague added that Bungie will keep an eye on the overall situation and extend Xur’s stay for as long as needed and is feasible. Next week, Xur will return to his normal schedule with refreshed inventory.
Rockstar Games similarly extended Grand Theft Auto V’s Christmas update for the same reason.
Thankfully, Xbox Live services were restored on Friday, and it seems that the PlayStation Network finally started working again last night.
