One of the biggest shortcomings of Bungie’s Destiny’s franchise was the ability to play with friends on multiple platforms. The game is perfect for cross-play, but with corporate politics at play, the odds of that happening soon seems a bit slim.
The second best option however was always the ability to able to play with the same characters and gear you acquired on multiple platforms, provided you have a copy of the game on said platform. This is finally happening with Cross-Save, which went live last night, albeit with a few snags along the way.
Many players reported issues, the most common being a “500 Error”. The same issue seems to be happening with the Steam transfer of Destiny 2 accounts from Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.
Bungie did acknowledge the issues that some players are experiencing, saying they are monitoring and investigating the issues:

We'll be monitoring/investigating issues throughout the launch window. Minor hiccups may occur, with so many of you eager to hit the button.

It makes sense why Bungie is doing the Steam transfer and cross-save integration a month before the launch of Shadowkeep, the next expansion into the Destiny 2 Saga, since it will give them time to iron out any possible issues.
