Destiny 2 has had its ups and downs and Bungie recently separated from Activision and took the rights of Destiny with it. Bungie talked about upcoming content coming in the future but the company did not say much about the franchise and what fans should expect. The developer has now opened up about its short-term and long-term plans for the franchise.
Destiny director Luke Smith talked about what fans can expect to see in the coming days. He mentioned that the devs have learned from the feedback that fans have provided regarding the latest DLC of Destiny 2 and that the developers are going to learn from their mistakes. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
In the short-term, we’re continuing to build the content we’ve promised for the Annual Pass. We’ve learned a lot from Black Armory that we will apply to future releases, most notably that we’d like the beginning experiences of content drops to be a better point of convergence for the player base. In Black Armory, we set the Power requirement for the first forge too high, and that meant it wasn’t a great chance to jump into some new content. We want to find the line between new content that many players can play, and aspirational content for players to progress toward. We’re exploring improvements to catch-up mechanics for players in upcoming seasons.
Now that Bungie has got a second chance at freedom, we might see some changes. Things could be done differently and that is what we expect from the developer. Now the Bungie is independent whatever happens, the fans are not going to blame Activision for it and Bungie will have to take full responsibility for its actions.
Luke Smith mentioned that the team is working on future experiences, enemies and way to play the guardian you have been building since 2014. This is all very interesting indeed but I am sure that fans are more interested in a concrete roadmap of what they are going to get in the future. I am sure once the Annual pass content comes closer to an end we will be able to learn about the content that follows.
Let us know what you think about the future of Destiny and what you would like Bungie to do next now that the developer has plenty of freedom.
