With Forsaken, we’ve learned, and listened, and leaned in to what we believe our players want from a great Destiny experience. Rest assured there is more of that on the way. We’ll continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap, and we’re looking forward to releasing more seasonal experiences in the coming months, as well as surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond.
Do you think Bungie will continue to just build off the current game and possibly rename it to something else in the future?... or do you think a Destiny 3 will happen?
Better to reboot the series then. If they want a Warframe style game, then they should start at the core again. Also, Destiny is too narrow in focus to emulate Warframe. Not enough classes, weapon variety or mobility options to make it work.
keeping it does not mean they don't stop developing new stuff. in fact all it may mean is they are giving it to netease for them to bring to china where it is currently not supported. That is netease business. So a potential several hundred million new customers of an existing product. win win. maybe that is why they were all so happy at bungie. selling what you already got done is a lot more profit than developing something new. not like the game has a lot of dialog.
Forsaken didn’t bring me back despite playing the previous expansions a lot. It just feels like Destiny needs those sequels to really bring up the hype again. And it’s also a great way to rework the fundamentals of the game.
Destiny 3 is definitely coming. I hope they take their time and make it the ultimate Destiny. A fully fledged MMO with expansion packs and all that stuff. No Destiny 4.
It's also probably not coming this generation, I expect one more expansion for Destiny 2 and then D3 in late 2020.
I do not believe that it wasn't already in development from almost day one. I also don't believe, and this is backed up by journalistic efforts. That Activision was pulling major strings with their decisions on this kind of thing.
I wish they would hold off on D3 to make real progress on 2. But I just don't think they will.
They can put all the planets and maps of d1 & 2 together, make the maps open world as intended, so we can ‘go to that mountain’ and put actual story content throughout the game that leads to the final showdown with the darkness.
thought it was implicit D2 is wrapping up after their planned stuff
if Destiny 3 is the same kind of sequel D2 was i'm probably done with it. I thought D2 would be their free reign to do something closer to their original vision, now with activision out of the way i definitely expect something closer to that.
Agreed that would be the best route. Maybe in the future add dedicated servers for pvp and 60 fps for next gen consoles. Then just crank out free sp/mp content for the foreseeable future and rake in money from skins/emotes and other cosmetic crap... they could make some sort of battlepass where buying the bp allows you dedicated servers for pvp and maybe raids to help cover server costs.
Yeah according to Activision, nothing is doing well including Call of Duty. I wouldn't use their metrics for the actual health of an IP, especially for something like D2 where in-game MTX was significantly pulled back compared to 2017. There's a million people logging in to play it daily, both hardcore and low level players. 40% of people are actually doing patrols, which is nowhere near end-game stuff.
