Destiny’s late 2014 launch is a good thing

Gamezone writes, "A lot of people seemed a bit shocked that Destiny, Bungie’s highly anticipated game, isn’t releasing until September. “Spring 2014’ was attached to the game’s release after E3 somehow. Thankfully, that’s not going to be the case; the E3 build looked absolutely nowhere complete." (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Agreed. This game seems very ambitious in its scope. It covers multiple planets, a deep mysterious story, places and items to discover, with multiplayer events folded into the experience. Expect a great campaign, seamless coop and vast open world environments.

Also, Bungee scores points by offering up a beta. This allows them to collect feedback. The initial release is guaranteed to be very solid and fine-tuned.

Battlefield 4 had a beta and we all saw how that turned out...

However, I'm fine with the developer taking the time they need to get it right and not rely on patching the heck out of it right after launch.

Yea it had a beta that was conducted 3 weeks before the game shipped. I wonder why it had problems.

Destiny has been in development for twice the length bf4 was and the beta is supposed to drop in the spring not right before the game releases. So I think we're in the clear for this one.

Betas are always within the last month or so before release typically for every game. 2-3 weeks is typical. DICE relies entirely on the Beta to patch the game. That is their own fault.

You should expect the beta to be delayed as well.
http://www.gamespot.com/art... <<< Destiny Beta begins Summer 2014. Basically August. Somewhere between 1-4 weeks before the game is launched. :)

I am not understanding how Activision plans to sell CoD next to Destiny for the holiday season.

I'm hoping for a good game, but I haven't enjoyed single player in a bungie game since halo ce

It'll be a good thing only if it gives them the needed time to avoid making it like Skyrim was early in its own life; riddled with bugs and mistakes.

If Destiny needs a delay to fix those from being complaints when it launches, then I say I agree with the article; it's a good thing it's releasing later.

Good! Way too many rushed games nowadays, glad they are taking the time to get it right

when i originally read about Destiny on ign it said something like Borderlands done by Bungie and i almost passed out lol

2014 is just a huge year for next gen consoles

Watch dogs which was rightfully delayed is gonna be amazing
Drive Club the true next gen racing game
Witcher 3 what else can i say
Infamous 2nd son, first great super hero game of next gen
The order 1886

these are 5 games that have me so excited along with Destiny

Bah. I haven't been able to keep current on gaming news lately so this is the first I'm hearing of the Destiny delay. Extra dev time is infinitely preferable to releasing an unfinished game, but I am still disappointed to hear it.

the time frame is only a concern to me due to how many platforms destiny will be coming out on... not to say that i've moved on because im still going back and forth between my 360 and one at the moment but they need to just focus on current gen and leave the older systems out because its just going to gimp the final product, having to be made on so many systems is what fucked up BF4 in my opinion but who knows im still very hopeful because the premise of destiny is amazing and i wish nothing but the best for it... but i do have some very real concerns that i think should be noted

They've been working on this game for 4+ years already how long does it f**king take?

As long as it takes to get it right. I'd rather it take too long than not long enough.

get the combat right , personally i want a shooter not a mmo

*is in the beta*

Last few mmo's I have played kind of turned me off but I'm willing to give Destiny a shot.
Hopefully they do all the little things that matter right and realize that having customization,lore related pursuits,exploration is important.A game revolving solely around combat,especially if it is bland,is not going to keep alot of peoples interest for long.

Going to be keeping my good eye on Destiny and remain cautiously optimistic.
