  • Activision not Happy with Destiny Support Destiny 2 Will Have Regular Content Updates

    Activeision Not Happy with Destiny Support

    The original Destiny had the shell of a fantastic game, but it was backed up by an absolute dearth of content. New missions and areas were few and far between, offering little incentive for those who weren’t gear-hungry grinders to keep logging in. Providing far more content is the top priority for Destiny 2 though, according to Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, who claims that several other Activision developers have been folded into Bungie in order to ensure a regular stream of new content for players.
    The original Destiny had had four expansions - The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken and Rise of Iron, the latter two being the major ones. The problem was that they were prohibitively expensive, oftentimes light on content, and players would have to wait six months for the next one to come out.

    "I have not been happy with the cadence of [Destiny 1’s] content," said Hirshberg in an interview with GI Biz. "We got a lot right with Destiny 1, but one of the things we didn't do was keep up with the demand for new content. I feel like that, as great as The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King and Rise of Iron all are, clearly there was an appetite for more. One of the things you'll see post the launch of Destiny 2, is that we have got additional AAA developers from inside the Activision ecosystem working with Bungie on Destiny content, including Vicarious Visions and High Moon. That will allow us to keep an even more robust pipeline of content in the ecosystem.”
    If Bungie truly can deliver a regular content cycle then it really is onto a winner here. From my experience playing Destiny, content was basically the only barrier between me and hundreds of hours of my life lost in its world.
    Activision isn’t averse to this sort approach either, but many of its franchises have taken wildly differing angles to post-launch plans, whether it be Call of Duty, Overwatch or Skylanders. Delivering regular content is no easy thing though, particularly if Bungie wants it to be of a high quality. The addition of the Vicarious Visions and High Moon’s teams should go a long way in helping with this, while much of the core game has already been fleshed out thanks to the lessons learnt and work done on the original Destiny.
