AMD have confirmed that they have identified the root cause and implemented a BIOS fix for Destiny 2 issue which prevented some Ryzen 3000 owners from playing the game. The new BIOS version should arrive in the upcoming days, say AMD.

Earlier this week, Destiny 2 players who upgraded to a CPU from AMD's latest lineup - Ryzen 3000 - reported a strange issue that prevented them from playing the game.

On Destiny 2 forum and subreddit, players said that after hitting the play button in Battle.net, a message "The game is running" appears and Destiny2.exe file appears in the Windows Task Manager, but the game is not launching. One player removed his Ryzen 3000 CPU and replaced it with his old part and apparently, the game was working fine after that.

Bungie replied and confirmed that they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix but they are yet to release the patch, five days after players started reporting these problems.

Fortunately, AMD also worked on a fix and it looks like they managed to solve the issue. In an official statement, AMD representative said that a patch for Destiny 2 should arrive in the upcoming days.

"AMD has identified the root cause and implemented a BIOS fix for an issue impacting the ability to run certain Linux distributions and Destiny 2 on Ryzen 3000 processors. We have distributed an updated BIOS to our motherboard partners, and we expect consumers to have access to the new BIOS over the coming days," it's written in the statement.

While some gamers may be unfamiliar with BIOS updates, the process is quite simple and it requires a download of the latest BIOS version to USB device, entering BIOS and selecting the file you downloaded for installation. You can find a tutorial for the installation on your motherboard manufacturer's website. 

As you can see in the statement above, AMD also have a fix for Linux ready to roll out, which is certainly good news for those who were unable to boot up Linux machines using the latest kernel.
