Bungie Offers Hopeful Update About The Future Of Destiny After Activision Split
The gaming world – alongside the developers themselves – cheered in joy when Bungie announced that they were once again in total control over the Destiny franchise following their breakup with Activision. Now the newly freed Bungie is opening up a bit about what the future looks like for the series, and it’s looking brighter than ever before.
Destiny director Luke Smith began his hopeful statement by giving a respectful nod to their previous work with Activision – keeping things friendly and professional — as it should be. Following a short message of thanks, the director opened up a bit more about what’s next for the shooter.
“In the short-term, we’re continuing to build the content we’ve promised for the Annual Pass,” he began. “We’ve learned a lot from Black Armory that we will apply to future releases, most notably that we’d like the beginning experiences of content drops to be a better point of convergence for the playerbase. In Black Armory, we set the Power requirement for the first forge too high, and that meant it wasn’t a great chance to jump into some new content. We want to find the line between new content that many players can play, and aspirational content for players to progress toward. We’re exploring improvements to catch-up mechanics for players in upcoming seasons.
“Long-term, Bungie is committed to Destiny. We created the universe and we hold its future entirely in our hands. The vast majority of the team is hard at work envisioning future experiences, enemies, and ways to play the Guardian you’ve been building since 2014. We’re going to keep doing that.”
This is the second time that Bungie has divorced themselves from a major publisher, with the first being their very public breakup with Microsoft years ago, but it seems like spirits are flying high for what’s next concerning the franchise’s future.
We’re excited to see where they go from here and what they do with their newfound freedom. But what about you? Any particular hopes you have in mind for Destiny’s future? Join in on the conversation in the comment sectin below, or hit us up over on Twitter @YouFedtheGamers!
