In an interview with Eurogamer, The Taken King Creative Director Luke Smith explained that a lot of people have said “hey Bungie you’re asking a lot of questions about the universe you have created” without giving out too many answers. However, this is going to change with The Taken King, as the DLC will begin giving answers to some of the many questions about the game’s universe.
People have said, ‘hey Bungie you’re asking a lot of questions about the universe you have created.’ We’re going to start answering them this autumn. Our proper nouns – The Darkness, The Nine – represent seeds of a plant that we would like to pour water on and grow. Just as we’ve done with Oryx – he’s name-dropped in the base game but also in The Dark Below. And it’s now because of players and their actions that the events of The Taken King take place. And it allows them to think, when they’re running around The Taken King, how their actions will reinforce the series in the future.
The Taken King is set to release on September 15 for PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. What answers to you hope the DLC provides? Be sure to check out our own interview with Luke Smith here.
