Is the N20 prone to timing chain failure?

I recently just got a 320i and noticed that the engine sounds horrible on cold start and constantly ticks after warmup which I've read is because of the injectors and nothing to worry about. On the other hand I've heard that the n20 is prone to timing chain and guide failure. I have a 2017 with 35k on it so I should be okay since because of the warranty on BMW's behalf but are the newer models of the n20 as prone to this issue as older ones?
