Bungie says there’s no 10 year plan for Destiny


"It may have better player numbers than ever and a new expansion in the form of The Taken King, but once upon a time, Destiny was a hush-hush new property behind closed doors at Activision and Bungie. Then along came a legal dispute between Activision and Infinity Ward that revealed information on a mysterious decade long, $140 million, four-game-plus-four-expansions setup that was set to form a core part of the publisher's future strategy. Of course, with its incredible budget and already expanding library, Destiny was clearly that game, but what of that fabled 'ten-year plan'? Was there any truth to it or was it just an old detail on an outdated design brief?"

2015: A ten-year plan? It’s a ten-year partnership agreement. It has nothing to do with the development of the game proper.

2014: When the creator of Halo, Bungie, officially announced Destiny two years ago, it revealed a ten-year plan. According to the studio’s contract with Activision (which was revealed in full online due to the publisher’s legal battle with ex-Infinity Ward developers, Vince Zampanella and Jason West), the development team committed to at least a decade on the project.

My how things change.

I mean now that Taken King has released lets back away from any bullshit promises we may have made. Not once was the fabled 10 year plan distanced from in fact they liked the narrative. Made the game seem so much larger than it was. Which was essentially 5 Halo levels.

Sounds to me they can't handle 10 years of feedback heh ;)

WeAreLegion1537d ago

Good. Make a different game now, to fulfill that 10 year partnership. A completely different game.

zidane13411536d ago

The taken king is a whole new game. So already done.

Neonridr1536d ago

lol, no it is still Destiny. Yes they have changed a lot for the better, but it's not like it's a brand new game.

We actually have questlines and reason to play everyday now. It certainly feels like a brand new game from destiny 1. Admittedly I wouldn't feel it had I not switched brands going into next gen. I had to start from zero, no exotics or legendaries, rep, or coin and get it all back. In 2 weeks I have 7 exotic weapons and 2 exotic armor all year 2. Point is, it's not so much of a grind. With exception to lord shaxx questline for crucible weekly bounties. That was rough on me.

So what you lied to the court? if you don't know about this, it doesn't mean it didn't exist, not every employee knows every deal his employer construct.

n4rc1537d ago

that "contract" was more of a proposal then anything else.. the game wasnt named, its released date wasnt made etc..

obviously a new piece of documentation exists.. things change as well.. contracts can and do get modified with both parties consent all the time.. the guy was fired, he obviously isnt a part of the new deal and uses his old contract in court.

not sure what the big deal is..
