Hey everyone. We’ve seen some debate around the new dungeon content and wanted to clarify how it will be delivered next year.
So Bungie has decided to go full EA.
Thank you Destiny…
You never go full EA
and Activision, Ubisoft, Nintendo. pretty much everybody at this point
When Bungie left Microsoft they said they wanted to do something different and wanted to guide their own ship. When they went independent I had a ton of hope they would do something new and really unique. Here they are today.... They built a game in the exact same genre and have gone to a MTX and nickel and diming model for their game. I think there are a lot of pluses in Destiny, but it really doesn't feel like they went radically new, and you would've expected them to go pro-consumer, but they have gone the exact opposite direction.
The funny thing is, people thought them splitting from Activision was a good thing This proves it was also Bungie, not just Activision, with all their decisions during the franchises development.
Do people honestly still play Destiny 2? I tried Destiny 1 on PS3 and I thought it was boring Bungie going down the EA path is a great way for people to dump the game. Especially with other and newer titles coming out soon.
destiny is kind of crap content wise. you're expected to repeat dungeons and bosses ad nauseum. the story is filler and really the only thing it has is good snappy gunplay but again, the content is bare bones. edit: It's basically a dumbed down halo rpg lite
@Games4u But Halo came first... so how can it be 'reskinned'
The game engine destroys the dated halo.. There are faults no doubt.. but even infinite looks like a 6 year olds drawing of what destiny is per gameplay. The poorly animated grapple, dome.. shields.. there is a reason it is free and it is not “kindness” it is a joke even compared to cod of which its core engine is from 1998
@orchid bungie came first.
@Rude-ro The Destiny 2 engine is such an outdated joke I can't tell if you're serious. Horrendous netcode that uses P2P networking for embarrassingly low player counts. PvP is a running joke with the frequent kill trades and horrendous netcode that is constantly manipulated to cheat in ranked/trials playlists. The game takes forever to load and looks like a launch title for last generation consoles because that's literally what Destiny has become. Content is so dry and spread out all you do is run dungeons backwards and wait for gated content to drop that they reskinned from Destiny 1.
@rude-ro tell us you know nothing about destinys engine without telling us you know nothing about destiny ancient dusty assed difficult to work with engine
@ Games4U I hate Halo but it came out first before Destiny was a gleam in its creators eye
You mean a better halo rpg lite. And it's not really that lite actually.
I have some friends still playing but they're mainly crucible [PVP] players. Pretty much everyone else who played since D1 has quit w/in the past 2 years. Personally I quit playing last year when they announced sun-setting. That along with the lack of content year after year, Bungie raising the price of the big expansion + season pass along with other issues Bungie brings upon themselves/the game pushed me away finally. This is a company who commits to not doing something only to change course down the line and they expect fans to be ok with it. Not to mention the nerfs hitting PVE because of PVP, etc, etc. There is no vision or leadership at Bungie imo. The thing is Destiny at it's core is an incredible shooter. But the truth is there are still a lot of people still playing D2 along with those who came in late who are now/still playing.... What's hilarious is how up in arms most, if not all, content creators got over sun-setting threatening to quit the game, etc. Yet at the end of the day they make easy money playing this game and took it up the wazoo like all the other suckers out there who still support this game. Which is sad because real change might have been possible. Regardless, at this point even if a D3 dropped idk that I trust Bungie anymore to even support that. 2 cents
As awful as the PvP is I'm surprised even that crowd has stayed. Easily the worst netcode of any game I've played in the last ten years.
when bungie moves on from destiny, ill move back to bungie...
@Notellin - true that. It's a rare game I actually wanted to play PVP in but rarely did because of the trash code and so called hybrid server structure that's still junk.
Yes people honestly still play Destiny 2.
Well Destiny 2 is still in the top 10 current players list on steam. So its still a populair game. I used to play Destiny 2 a lot to, especially for the raids. But the weekly grind just gets so boring after a while and starts to feel like a weekly chore. So I stopped playing it. Maybe of they can fix the tedious powerlevel grind I will start playing it again
"Do people honestly still play Destiny 2" Yes people still play Destiny 2 because they enjoy it. Just like how I still playing WWF No Mercey spite is releasing 21 years ago.
Yeah apparently loads still play, my friend recently got back heavily into it but personally didn't last an hour before i got bored again.
the bungie fanboys dont have EA to blame now either lol
*don't have Activision to blame
It actually got worse after the split from Activision.
Yeah, isn't that insane? Activision actually had a better grasp on what the playerbase wanted then Bungie. When they stopped making content like Foresaken, split from Activision and made seasons, I knew this game was done.
I been done with Destiny 2 since 2019 and 8 don't see anything to bring me back
That was the perfect time to quit. I left in February 2019. I'll never go back. Amazing to watch a game get progressively worse.
Basically Bungie has killed the base game and continue to bury it even further the campaign that came on my disc was "vaulted" meaning it's no longer playable and if you don't own any of the dlcs you can only visit a handful of hub world's with no real purpose to the game. It's disgusting that they could actually vault the base game meaning I can't play the game I legally own.
You do not “legally” own any game. I am not defending the practice… but the rights to play vs owning was way before destiny. Bungie was just the first to make it a reality.
I understand you have a EULA that's a hundred pages long and if you read it then I'll be sending you a medal because it's a doozy. Still it's not a great practice to assume your fanbase own all of the optional dlcs and scrap an entire campaign that was the foundation of the game.
So what? Doesn't make a difference whether it's "ownership" or a "license" to use the "product"...it's just semantics. So, as you put it, you paid money to have the rights to play the game with all the features at the time. Then your rights to some of those features you paid for are taken away. So they are still taking something from you that you paid for....doesn't matter that you don't legally "own" the damn source code.
You know that agreement you typically skip over and Accept? You might want to start reading what you “legally own”.
Semantics… no moral logical individual would support that. It’s like Facebook shutting down certain things
This franchise turned into a FOMO, MT ridden mess even after Acti left. Then they went even further and removed tons of content that F2P players could play. Now they have no choice but to play PVP or pay money or quit. Hopefully, more choose quit.
Lol, good thing I didn't get far into Destiny 2. I'll be uninstalling that bullshit.
Great idea to uninstall
Better idea to never install.
I was super into destiny. Played the alpha and beta and all the way thrrough all the DLC's, then destiny 2 launched and the uphill climb they did throughout destiny was shattered instantly. They went and dumbed down the entire game and changed the loadout and rpg systems. From that point on, as well as the ever verse store, I knew what was going on so I quit. I came. Back a year or so later and saw it was worse. Then I came back a little after they split from Activision and saw how much greedier they got. Moral of the story, do not play destiny 2 or pre-order destiny 3.
What a shame, destiny got great graphics, physics, effect, easy to play. It's was on top on fps games, but bungie destroyed the franchise. Milking everything. The seasons are getting worse, reskins old stuff. How can they be so stupid. They had millions and millions of player and destroyed that. Tons of player on pvp and pve and now...
Doesn't matter plenty of players will still buy it. The fan base is huge, the community is tight streamers make a living off destiny. For all its faults and all the complaints, this game will still be going strong 10,20,30,40 50 years to infinity.
People still play this this? Go play Warframe, it's free, and the updates are free. Destiny 2 is one of if not the biggest rip-off in gaming.
I'm completely done with Destiny 2. Which doesn't make me happy. I used to love it but it's just a completely pointless grind now, doing the same shit over and over and over again for no real reason. I broke out the loop a while ago and I'm not going back in.
They are all the same. At the end of the day it’s all bout the pay check!
I remember when everyone thought Activision was the problem for Bungie and Destiny and how great Destiny would be when they get out from under them......lol! Bungie has now broken apart parts and repackaged D1 3 or 4 times now and resold it into D2 but the problem isn't that they have no new ideas for new content the problem is millions of gamers keep buying the same crap over and over. EA or no other gaming company has a thing on Bungie as they have set the standard on how ripping people off is done and have proven that Stockholm Syndrome is a real thing.
Destiny 2 has come, and Destiny 2 has gone.There are better games.
It's very disappointing to see what's happened to Bungie. They used to be one of my favorite developers.
Stopped playing DESTINY 2 in March 2020 because DOOM ETERNAL came out. Never went back to Destiny 2 due to single player content in Destiny is way to easy and not fun and challenging to play . Still playing DOOM ETERNAL and ID SOFTWARE dropping Update 6.66 this upcoming Tuesday with Horde mode and 2 more Master Levels for FREE!
I think it is finally time to say goodbye to Bungie, and free up the space on my PS5 for a more worthy game.
Oh wow let’s wait and see what happens next will players quit or just go 🤷🏿 I like the game so it’s ok
This game sucks. Never understood the charm people felt towards it. The loading time were hideous and gameplay was repetitive.
I agree, The game had some appeal when it was new but, now it is a repetitive bore-fest, how many times can you clear the same dungeons or play the same operations or slightly different ones with the SAME MAPS!?!?! bore, Bore, BORING!!!
