Does Bungie Being “Free” of Activision Mean A Better Future for Destiny?

Given the developer’s track record, we’re cautiously optimistic about the franchise’s future.

And add matchmaking for the raids. Used to play Destiny quite a bit but never actually had friends who played it so never got to try this part of either of the 2 games properly.

I hope so, still not sure how much Activision had its teeth sink in to Bungie when creating / developing the game, I mean really not think is Activisions fault that the game turned into a freaking huge boring grind fest all the time, right now Bungie Destiny 2 suffers from the old stuff and with new annoying things:

* Story is pathetic dumb, yeah kill the best character in the whole damn game?, good job Bungie
* Grind fest is worthless, the end rewards are mostly so useless
* Returning old Weapons from Destiny 1 year one as new ?, dumb as hell, this isn't supposed to be a new game ?
* No new guardian classes, heck in Destiny 2 you need to reactivate your old specials from Destiny 1.
* They added a bow?, really a bow?
* Raids still no damn matchmaking
* All raids and rewards in D2 are so damn bad, they don't come close to the ones in D1 like the Vault of Glass
* New weapons designs and armors designs are horrid! and useless, D1 were like years ahead in comparison of D2
* Sparrow and Ships absolutely almost nothing new added since Destiny 1
* Damn same recycle enemies over and over again, new types of enemies are almost none existent in D2.
* oh and the main villians are cabals from D1 ?, and also they added a cute hamster faces design to all cabal , good job Bungie.

There are so many more things wrong with D2 but I will ended with those few things, really not sure how Activision had to do with all that but lets see what Bungie can do by their own 100%.

I agree the only thing I can think of that Activation would be putting some sort of burden

Micro transactions
And time constraints to push a new game out.

Otherwise I feel a lot of the other problems are just because of Bungie

Yet that again may fall in time constraint

In the long run yes but there are a fair few hurdles along the way that Bungie will need to address. They had other Activision studios working on Destiny 2 (Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios) plus I'm sure it's ActiBlizzard who host the PC servers. I'm sure overall in the future it will hopefully mean great things but I imagine it could potentially set their development plans back a little bit too.

Bungie is overrated. Activision is scum.

It sure as hell doesn't hurt, and it's enough that most people are very optimistic about it. I for one am anxious to see what happens, cause mechanically i LOVE the gameplay of Destiny, just not all the crap surrounding it.
