It’s the job of every video game developer to address the criticisms launched against their game. Now, sometimes it’s minor things, like bugs and glitches, but other times, they’re major flaws holding the game back. To be fair, sometimes they can’t be dealt with, but for many games, they can. This holds true for Destiny 2, which has been blasted by players since it came out on console and then PC. For months now, players have been asking developer Bungie for significant changes, and now, Bungie has finally addressed them.
In a major post on Reddit, the team at Bungie gave a “State of the Address” on Destiny 2, and acknowledged some things that they have done wrong. For example, they admit that they haven’t been the most open company since the game’s launch, and they aim to fix that.
What’s more, their goal with all the upcoming content is for the game to be a title that players won’t just come back to, but enjoy, make friends in, and more.
“We want Destiny to be a world you want to be a part of.”
They then bust out massive lists of updates and changes that are going to be made to Destiny 2. Some of which are coming out very soon. These changes include new rewards for players to get in order to make the game more enjoyable in the long run. This itself includes better rewards for completing Prestige Challenges. Other things including private matches in the Crucible, improvements on Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, weapon improvements are coming as well, especially for the Exotics, and that’s still only just the start.
As for how the player base is feeling about this announcement, they’re tentatively positive. They feel that Bungie is at the very least listening to them, but it’ll be up to Bungie as to whether they deliver.
