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."

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.

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.
