Following the release of Bungie's Destiny in September of 2014, Activision ensured that the game was kept alive (and that the money continued to roll in) with various expansion packs that arrived in fairly quick succession. We had The Dark Below, The House of Wolves and eventually the game-changer, Destiny: The Taken King.
However, Bungie claimed that this release schedule wasn't sustainable and that it was placing remarkable strain on their office. After all, we've heard of how difficult it can be to meet the demands of Activision's leaders. However, things have cooled down and it seems that a more attainable goal has been outlined for the future of Destiny. Rather than having tons of expansions in 2016, players will be able to buy Destiny 2 in and around September.
An Anticipated Release Date - Will The Wait For Destiny 2 Kill Off This Community?
While we wait for the release of Destiny 2, Bungie have continued to release updates and various events in order to keep the community engaged with the online FPS. However, fans of the title aren't satisfied and a lot of gamers have apparently started to abandon their guardians.
Other publications have also cited the release date of Ubisoft's [Tom Clancy's The Division](tag:2684169) as a potential threat to Activision's thriving community. Perhaps this online RPG will satisfy Destiny-owners in ways that the current build of the game can't. Therefore, is the wait for Destiny 2 too long? And does it demonstrate further problems with Bungie's FPS?
Destiny' sub-reddit, along with numerous forums, demonstrate that fans are frustrated by the game. It seems that the previous release schedule, which saw multiple expansions, was enough to keep fans engaged for a while. But now that Destiny is experiencing a bit of a drought, its problems have been laid bare once more. There just isn't enough content to keep this community alive and thriving.
What exactly are you thoughts on Bungie's Destiny? We recently saw what fans desire for Destiny 2, from the likes of space combat to minimal fixes. But is the wait for these kind of updates too long? Will Destiny's problems keep you away from it until a new expansion or sequel is available for purchase?
Personally, even though The Taken King introduced numerous features that Destiny desperately needed from the beginning, it's still not enough to keep me playing for months on end. The lack of expansions has laid bare the sorry state of Bungie's Destiny once more, and all we can hope for is a revolutionary change with the arrival of Destiny 2.
