Destiny 2 had originally been scheduled to release later this month, according to documents posted online following the legal battle between Marty O'Donnell and Bungie.
well yeah... but destiny didnt release in 2013 did it? thats all out of date and was only anticipated at that.. that old info just happened to be in a contract that included the composers legal drama so its been published. its no longer relevant
True but they're in court again now over false advertising.
False advertising? What is the story there? Not heard about any court cases other than with Marty
Can you link me to the false advertising court case? Just want to read up on it.
I smell the toxic relationship going on over at Bungie and Activision will eventually result in another lawsuit between them. Oh well, Bungie has gone total [email protected] now so it doesn't matter if they get free of the Activision clutches.
I looked up the false advertising case you mentioned but all I got was people wanting it to happen and the case from 2007 where they were taken to court for false advertising on halo 3. Have you a link for this new case??
Agreed, I was just going to point that out. That leak also stated 2013, thus I would assume they mean 2016 for Destiny 2. They might have revised the contract to fit the 2014 release and we just haven't seen it yet. Good point and beat me to it lol.
id imagine its pretty old.. they hadnt even named the game yet! lol this looks more like a proposal rather then an actual contract.. one can assume they have since figured out all the details and now have a proper roadmap that we still dont know. well.. we probably do.. release > 2 dlc > comet > 2 dlc > repeat lol
I bet the taken king was originally planned to be destiny 2 but after the backlash due to the lack of content in vanilla they decided against it. Just a theory
Doubt it the original game was meant to release in 2013.
I'd say it's more likely that the year one DLC packs and TTK were a part of the original Destiny game but cut out to meet deadlines then repackaged and sold to us to extend the game's longevity and make more $$$$
Destiny 2 so basically a reskinning of the first game with more 40 dollar expansion packs . No thanks
i wonder if it all fully carries on so that u can playall of destiny 1 and 2 together.
It has been confirmed that your characters will transfer over so I assume you can still play the original content as you have paid for it. Might be some character transfer thing so your original characters are in both.
I probably won't buy another Destiny game until it comes to PC, and is no longer a caterer to the old age PS3 and Xbox 360. I'll also be a smart consumer and wait for the GOTY edition since apparently Bungie and Activision like to bleed out their customers.
A smart consumer would just avoid the sh!t that Activision and Bungie sells. Buy games from developers that are friendlier to gamers!
Like the Witcher 3 developers!
Bungie has always been a huge community friendly studio. None of us knew that Destiny would turn out the way that it did.
@KwietStorm: Yeah, Bungie WAS a community friendly studio under MS leadership. Now, they just want you throw money at the screen, sell you a [email protected] game, and oh resell you the same game you already bought and pay extra! "None of us knew that Destiny would turn out the way that it did." Yeah, because Bungie lied to you and sold you something else thant what it turned out to be!
I'm disgusted that they planned expensive dlc for all the games before they even released the first. The only game I think could justify a $30+ dlc is ff 14 which released as a full game with loads of content and then released the expansion equivalent to another game.
"Destiny 2 was originally planned to release this month" Instead, Bungie decided to make some DLC and charge the full price of a game.
This is out of date information.
Ummm yes, because Destiny was originally scheduled to release in September 2013. The whole thing was pushed back by a year.
I read somewhere that The Taken King is basically Destiny 2. It also seems to have much more lore and or story than the others. I dont know. I want to like Destiny really bad but the only reason I can find to play it is because my best friend will be playing it non stop and I want to play with him. But Forza 6, Halo 5, Mario Maker, Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Xeno X are going to take tons of my time and money to play a game that is basically a non single player loot grind. I dont know if I can justify that after a year of playing Dragon Age Inquisition online. Plus the added expense of the expensive expansions.
Oh please, they added in some missions, new bounties, and reworked some bad systems. That's hardly a sequel and most of the changes are just overdue patches. They are trying to make it seem like that to justify the price.
I'd give it another shot if they got rid of the whole light leveling and add matching for the raid stuff since none of my friends play it anymore
Why did Bungie make a deal with Activision. For sure they must have made tons of money with the halo franchise. I dont understand why they need activision? for the marketing and publicity?
yes, must be something like that. I was wondering the same when Blizzard joined Activision... they were good without them, WoW generated tons of money!
The damn new DLC is almost 18 GB!! I wouldn't be surprise at all if the day one release of Destiny was just a damn beta and all this time we were just playing on a unfinished game and so finally they release the finished product with the Taken King, I mean why Bungie want it in the first place released this DLC at full price with the game and the two past DLCs included ??, I bet it was just a parts of the final release, Bungie not even was giving the opportunity to buy the Taken King separately in fact they were justifying on why you should buy the whole Destiny game again, but since the huge backlash of fans they Bungie reconsider and they know they fu#$$cked it up!, just go to the store there's still no price of the Taken King DLC alone this morons at Bungie haven't figure it out what the price would be. If you go to twitch and see some streams you will see is just the same freaking game but with a few addons denoting the same old sh#$it you already have but with a different view.
First destiny game was the last for me. Penny pinching bastards.
"extensive changes to the story" what deleting half of it? Lol literally there's barely any story to bloody change.?y
Thought Destiny 2 was suppose to release in 2017 and then another in 2019. Could of sworn that's what was said when some documents leaked from the court case with Activision and Infinity Ward. When all that was going on. I remember Destiny info leaking back then.
Bungie, you have sold your soul to the devil aka Activision. I cant believe what you did to Marty and I am so glad that karma has come back to bite you all in the ass. After finding out the real story I am totally disgusted by your practices. You all and Activision deserve each other. I wish the best of luck to Marty with his new games studio 'Highwire Games'. It is not in my destiny to support you anymore. You have lost all of your best people to 343i and now Marty. I hope you all and Activision enjoy your time in bed together.
