Destiny 2: Can Bungie Win Back Its Lost Players?

eXputer writes, "The future of Destiny 2 is uncertain due to a decline in players. Will it make a comeback before The Final Shape's launch?"

They could've just made all the remaining DLC free to pursue new players and get them onto the final shape stage.
Its not ok to have 10 pop-ups as a new player on what "extra" stuff you "can" purchase even before engaging in any gameplay.

The same thing happened a year ago when players finished up the yearly DLC and update content they were playing and they left the game then returned when the new content released. Also these same doom and gloom hacks were here pointing out that the player count in D2 dropped. Bungle is releasing a big content DLC in 2 months when this releases the Steam player count will jump back up to 200k+ maybe 300k. What we won't see when the DLC releases and player count jumps is these hacks pointing out this fact. I wonder why?

How do you explain Bungie firing almost 10% of its workforce after sales were revealed if everything is going ok just like every other year?

You seem like a player completely satisfied with Lightfall - would you care to describe some of your favorite parts?

I never said "everything is going ok at Bungie". I play Destiny 2 and hit the level cap and tap out! I don't farm for anything in the game I may not play all the new content. I hit the cap and and move on. The player count will return with the new content releases in June as it does every year. As far as Bungie goes I hope Sony is forced to take over the Board and the game so the layoffs and whatever changes Bungie makes the don't pan out puts Sony closer to that end....that's what I want to see!

My favourite part is Nimbus. I think it's great that Bungie are giving young talent the chance to be a part of the design process, letting a 10 year old Marvel fan create a character brings so much to the game.... jokes aside, Strand is a lot of fun but the rest was awful, like worse than the original no time to explain Destiny 1 level awful.

If you only play Destiny 2 when they raise the level cap then you must have not touched the game in over a year. I see how it helps thinking a game is doing ok when you don't actually play it. It seems that the only people who think Destiny 2 is doing great and challenge every story about the game are the fanatics of its new owners. Current Destiny 2 players don't think the game is going well. Bungie knows the game is doing badly through sales and player numbers. Sony is trying to figure out how to salvage some of its $3.6 billion dollar fumble.
