For those of us still playing Destiny the common consensus is that things are running pretty stale! however this is not what that article is about. With a change of Management (CEO) and post Investors/publisher meeting Destiny has revealed the revised scope for the game moving forward.
quoted from “this week at Bungie”
“Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring. That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.
Beyond that, the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017.”
So there you have it. Another treat coming in the spring, a MAJOR expansion in the fall (taken king size?) and a Brand new Destiny game in the Fall. For a Destiny fan this is something we all felt was coming however, now we have official confirmation of what will come through 2016 and hopes for 2017.
Crimson Doubles came out this week and turned out to be a very fun, exciting twist to the PVP playlist. Regardless of this the consensus is that it was a total cop-out. At its core Destiny is a looter shooter, Key emphasis on LOOT. Destiny needed this update for just the simple confirmation that new loot is coming. because lets face it new content, is great. however that content gets stale fast with multiple play through. However when you introduce new loot to the equation everything changes. The thrill you get when that new Exotic drops, the ultra rare boss specific legendary is great and unfortunately has been missing from Taken King in general.
Now looking forward i think destiny players are excited to visit new planets, actual space travel, killing the traveller? Who knows destiny has an insane amount of lore hidden in grimoire concept art and “leaked” documents.
The rumor circulating is that PS3 and Xbox360 will be abandoned for Destiny 2 and I for one would be eternally grateful for this. I feel that besides the game being stuck in developer hell the choice to not go completely next-gen in Destiny 1 was why it was so lacking. Hopefully with the increase of power taking off the handicaps and a new CEO is exactly what destiny needs to live up to the insane hype, and potential we had a taste of in year one and two.
