We’re only three months post-launch for Destiny, and Bungie’s already making the sequel — you can bring your Guardians along for the ride.
Fix the first game before talk of a sequal!
Sour! Do they thing i will fall for hype twice? No thanks you can keep the DLC abd the next game.
I wouldn't say it's broken. It's just not a brilliant experience. I think while to some extent small hotfixes and such are necessary to make what's there, the best it can be... larger overhauls make sense to reserve to sequels.
Why would anyone who played Destiny, buy Destiny 2?
because more loot, increased level cap and because it is hyped to the sky and everyone who is not playing it will be left out... Sometimes not a bad thing! :D AND!!!... Either they are used to play the same thing over and over again and don't care... OR... they still hope their is hope for Destiny! :D
Because they might like to play video games..... Weird!
I actually enjoy it. It's a good laugh. My girlfriend and I have two PS4s in our living room, so it's been great fun playing all the content in co-op together. No other current gen game offers such a comprehensive, co-operative experience to my knowledge. People like to hate Destiny because it didn't meet expectations, but the thing is if you judge it for what's there... it's not bad at all. If the game were produced by an unheard of, independent developer then I'm certain it would have gotten a better critical reception, the 'Bungie' title framed the game as the 'next best thing' and it just isn't. However it can be a lot of fun.
I'm buying it. Hell, I might even buy 2 and give the other away just so I can count that sale as yours. Bwahahaha! Better question: Why would someone who hates Destiny comment about Destiny 2?
@TimeSkipLuffy: "because more loot" Dayum, I'm sold!
I thought they said this game was going to be a 10 years game but it seems that they were talking about the IP and not the game itself huh?
The contract with activision is a 10 year deal. The contract includes 3 full installments of the game (destiny, destiny 2, and destiny 3). It also includes DLC inbetween but no one is sure how many DLC's will released between games. Right now, they confirmed 2; the dark below and the House of Wolves. I am assuming 2-3 per year with the game being every 2 years or so.
I'd quite like Destiny 2 to actually be a full game at launch - rather than a pay to play game!
What are you talking about? Have you played a pay-to-play game. Destiny isn't one. Like any game, you can have your issue with it etc. But, I will guess that it has been played more than 90% of games released this yr. And I will bet the average time played by those that do is absurd...like 100s of hrs. So, while it wasn't for everyone, and while Bungie can certainly improve in many areas, it is NOT pay to play.
I've played a lot of Destiny, it's mechanics are second to none! It's addictive, very addictive but also majorly lacking content. After about a week (maybe 2) you'll have seen all it has to offer and then it's just day by day repeating. You then hit a wall, do I pay £20 (£35 for the pass) to continue, or ignore that and keep doing the repetitive weekly/daily strikes and missions... It isn't a pay-to-play in the conventional sense but it's the same nature. DLC should be optional content, an after thought. The whole game shouldn't pivot on it. The Destiny DLC was clearly not an afterthought, a good deal of it was already in place (granted - possibly not complete) but I think we need to stop supporting this behavior, it might then encourage developers to release full games like they used to. I do really appreciate Bungie trying to evolve and fix their game but that doesn't make me any more forgiving of the dlc structure.
@ starman. 1-2 weeks? To do all the stikes, campaign obtain legendary and exotics, run the raid normal and hard to get the complete set and all the weapons. How about pvp? I do realize it's lacking in story, but i have hundreds of hours in and it is still bringing me back in. The DLC is timed perfectly and I can't wait.
I put a solid two weeks into Destiny, but I have to admit there is a lack of content. Perhaps having a few extra planets, more interesting and varied content on those planets, plus a few more Strikes/Raids and PvP modes would have gave it more longevity for me. I still enjoy it alot more than Borderlands though. Gunplay and graphics are better, story isn't any worse really, no annoying clap traps, and it feels more realistic when every single enemy that's a higher level isn't a massive bullet sponge. However... I think Borderlands does a better job with the sense of progression and actually differentiates the classes whereas Destiny's classes almost all feel like they have cloned abilities in a sense. I could never level up all three. Too painful.
Realistic? In a Sci fi game?
Why are we already talking about a sequel? I know, it sold well, it's a business, it will make them money, but I'm getting sick of the annual releases and constant turn around on games. They don't need to hype next game a week after you get the current one.
Same reason that we already know about AC Victory lol! It's a business and sites need hits.
is is just me or I don't want them to even talk about the sequel publicly until a year after the first one has lunched (even if they are thinking about it). if they are working on two it that means some of the resources they could be using to make destiny 1 better is working on destiny 2. its only been 3 months guys
No. Its not you, personally I think it's bad business *especially* considering the controvery surrounding the first. I mean the game hasn't even been out 4 months yet. It's when developers do things like this that people call foul on DLC and removed content.
Everyone knows this game supposedly has a 10 year cycle. Why wouldn't we want to know about the future games? How does it harm you to know that your characters will continue on? It doesn't mean the game is coming out anytime soon.
Because the first game just launched 3 months ago and has some teething issues that they are not acknowledging but they are able to talk about destiny two???
Every game has issues. Nearly everyone is enjoying this game as is. It is a vocal minority who continue to complain about the game. They can fix bugs, but there are hardly any of those. They can change some features, which they have done and will continue to do. That doesn't mean they can't work on Destiny 2 at the same time. What exactly are you still expecting them to change with the original game? Not sure why it is also so hard for you all to understand how development works. You don't think they are already working on Destiny 2? Sorry, but that is how it works. Major companies have dozens or even hundreds of people working on games. Some are working on existing games, some on new games. COD:AW was in development before COD:Ghosts was released. AC:Unity was in development before AC:Black Flag was released. Destiny had a 10 year plan, you don't think they were already thinking about 2 and 3 years ago?
@kurruptor No one at all is surprised there will be a sequel. The problem is Bungie/Activision f**cked up. At its core destiny is solid, but lacks any form of longevity in its current state. Endgame is lacking, PvP is still unbalanced, the loot system is poor. In its current form destiny just isn't the same game promised from bungie (check out the dev diaries). Add to this that players have discovered locked out content/areas already on disc that you will presumably have to pay for. Kurruptor, people are a little aggitated that the game still has issues (some of which could easily be fixed) and they are already discussing the sequel... As if to write those issues off. I don't think anyone didn't expect Destiny 2. It's just too soon to discuss it. It's just bad PR PS: I don't believe it's a vocal minority anymore. That might have been true a month or two ago. But most people log in on Tuesday to do the raid/dailys. Then log back in on Friday to check out Xur.
There are millions of people still playing this game daily. Just because the game doesn't play like a few loud mouths on the internet think it should play, doesn't mean that 95% of the people don't like it.
I don't think you are getting the point everyone is trying to make here. we know destiny two is coming hard not to as they have been talking about destiny two months before release. the point I am trying to make here is that Bungie is so tight lipped about all the glaring flaws of destiny 1 and talking about how they listen to community but do exactly the opposite but will gladly talk about destiny 2 when it should be about improving what is currently out (destiny1) and fixing what is currently broken with its first destiny instead of "advertising" destiny two
A new Game every two years with dlc every three months seems to be what they are aiming at with how easily they are talking about destiny 2 and its features.
Bungie wanted to support destiny for 10 years, it's clear now that it'll just be 10 installments - 1 per year!
You people know that game development takes roughly 1-2 years right? They aren't pulling things from Destiny to hold for D2. Calm down people, unless you want a new game every year with minimal change like Madden, CoD, etc.
I think that right there is the problem with a lot of games these dys... 1 - 2 years. I don't know about anyone else, but when we were first told about how the new hardware would mean dev's can make their games faster, I took that to mean that creating a game that was x big on the old systems would take maybe 3 to 5 years. Creating a game that was x big on the new systems would take maybe 2 to 3 years given that x is still = x (lets call x the amount of content/game size/story length). This would be possible because of the power and new tools the systems offer. As it turns out, they are creating these games in 1 to 2 years, not because of the tools or systems being more powerful, but because they are only putting in 1/2 the content they use to. looking at GTA you can see a clear difference in how a game that took 5 years to make and a game that takes 1 to 2 years to make holds up. Even when the pubs have different studios working on multiple entries, it still does not seem to help these games from a content and quality standpoint.
This game sucked its repetitive and bland it just looks nice that's it.. I sold my copy ages ago lol hype bate that's all this was as for destiny 2 well.................
Mario Bros. repetitive. One of the most favorite games of gamers ever. COD repetitive but has a huge following that buys the game every year. TLOU once you finish the story you have nothing to do but repeat the story again. Or repeat the same MP maps over and over again. Kirby, suck things up get powers, repeat. Tetris, stack shaped blocks to knock out layers of blocks, repeat. My point, video games are repetitive by nature. Your favorite video game is probably very repetitive, you just choose to accept that repetition as fun. The argument that it was repetitive makes it a bad game, is also basically saying every game is bad because, every game is repetitive.
Prepare for yearly releases
so basically, all of the content that was cut from this one will make up Destiny 2, haha count me out!. So much for being an fps style mmorpg, remind me?...how many world of warcraft games have been out?.
Thank you , but no thank you.
Destiny 2? Seems like Bungie have no problems conscripting players up for a sequel with or without success of the first one. "Destiny player and progress will be carried over" pretty much tries to haggle players into getting it. I played Destiny. I wasn't blown away. It has its flaws. The competitive gameplay was fun but the rest of the game is bare bones; not enough lore in the game to get fully interested in it and the characters are not very creatively designed. I mean this is pretty much Halo's baby brother going into MMO Mode. To top it off with little to no success so far with Destiny they are off to make a sequel? Dark times...Dark times ahead...
