Destiny 2 is a tale of two stories. On one hand, the game was by and large one of the most “successful” games of 2017. As within its first month on console, it sold more than any other game that came out in the year. By the end of it, it was only beaten by Call of Duty: WWII. Very impressive. However, the other story was how divisive both the game was, and the decisions made by Bungie (the developer) were. The game was not what players thought it would be, and Bungie made some key decisions that made many angry.
This includes a lack of endgame content, the locking out of content via DLC such as Curse of Osiris, and the Eververse (if you’ve played it, you know what I mean). Bungie promised to fix the game in 2018, and keep players in the loop as to what is going to happen next. And they’ve now kept that promise with a massive blog post detailing everything that’s coming. Including, outlining what is coming for the game next, and how players can get it.
Now, for those wondering about things like the Eververse and how that needs to change, and soon, Destiny 2 Game Director Christopher Barrett said this:
We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards.
So now, the game will lean towards “activity awards” into of getting Bright Engrams. And there will be other changes to make the experience better for players. This includes changes to the XP rates, which were also a big divisive thing among players.
Barrett also outlined the more immediate future of Destiny 2, including an update on the 31st, a few in January, some of the Spring, and some coming later this year. Check out the full post to see everything that’s coming this year.
