The future is bright for Destiny 2, according to Bungie’s Luke Smith. The latest weekly update from Bungie features a post from the game’s director addressing the news that Bungie is parting ways from Activision. Smith stresses that the studio will continue to work on the Destiny universe and that Destiny 2’s content updates are continuing as planned. In a separate announcement, Blizzard assured fans that the PC version of Destiny 2 will continue to live on the BattleNet launcher for the foreseeable future.
Bungie also thanked partners Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios for their work on Destiny content. Since both studios are owned by Activision, it’s unlikely they will continue their relationship.
“We’re thinking about what it means to be truly independent, what it means to self-publish, and crucially, what Destiny’s future can now look like for our players.”
What happens with Destiny 3? Where will Bungie find development funding outside of Destiny 2’s revenue? Speculation has been running rife since the breakup announcement. Whatever the company decides to do, players are keen to see what a “truly independent” Bungie looks like.

Is this a good game?


It is decent now that they fixed some of the stupid shit they did at launch… but in some ways it is still behind the “year 3” build of Destiny 1, that Bungie somehow forgot that they had made when they released Destiny 2 .

It will be interesting to see how the PC version will suffer now that Vicarious is gone, as they did excellent work on the PC edition of the game as well as the other studio doing a lot of good work on Destiny 2 that somehow Bungie were unable to do.


Bungie really don’t know what works and what not. So they sometimes invent really cool stuff, then proceed to forget it, the next thing will be different and worse. I don’t blame something like this on the publisher.
