Fixing the Destiny 2: The Final Shape Audio Issue on PC

To fix the audio issues in Destiny 2: The Final Shape, you need to disable any 3D audio interfaces like Dolby Atmos or Windows Sonic and relaunch the game.

The developers have confirmed that they’re currently investigating these audio issues and we should expect this to be addressed in an upcoming hotfix.

To disable Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos in Windows, follow the steps below.

  • In Windows Settings, search for Spatial Sound
  • Here, under Spatial Sound, make sure the Off is selected in the dropdown option

That’s all you can do for now, and we’ll have to wait for Bungie to address the problem in a patch. We don’t expect this to be an issue for long though.

Currently, the more pressing issue is related to servers and their availability. Bungie has confirmed that they’re investigating these and we’ll likely see improvement in a few hours.

Despite these issues, it’s clear that a lot of players are hoping to get in, and the game has already surpassed 271K concurrent players on Steam as of writing. We only see this number growing in the coming hours as some of the more pressing technical issues are addressed.

If you already haven’t, here are a few tips to prepare for this massive expansion. For more things Destiny 2, make sure to check out our dedicated section.
