Tomorrow was originally supposed to be the final live stream for Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris, titled “New Gear to Earn.” That live stream has been canceled in light of the recent outpouring of comments coming from fans wanting more than just a content reveal. Instead of highlighting the armor sets that will be coming with Curse of Osiris, they will now be taking this opportunity to talk about goals for the game, reactions to feedback from fans, and coming Destiny 2 endgame updates. You can read the full post from Community Manager DeeJ below.
Incoming Developer Commentary about Destiny.
Tomorrow, we had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of “Curse of Osiris” to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes. Instead, we are investing all our efforts into delivering some higher priority information about Destiny 2. You’ll hear from studio leadership about their assessment of Destiny all up, they’ll talk about our goals for the game going forward, and you’ll also learn about how we’re reacting to your feedback with some game updates that will arrive in the next few weeks.
That will appear on the Bungie Blog on Wednesday.
Last week, I published an article on why Destiny 2 needs endgame changes more than it needs the Curse of Osiris content, and recent issues regarding experience throttling have caused Destiny 2 players to demand more transparency from the studio. Shortly after the experience issue was discovered, Game Director Luke Smith tweeted to fans that the studio would be addressing fan feedback soon. We now know that these details will be coming tomorrow.
DeeJ notes in his post that we’ll “hear from studio leadership about their assessment of Destiny all up,” which makes me hope there’s a frank honesty that comes from them about places where Destiny 2 has fallen short. I’m also hopeful that the reaction to fan feedback with coming updates will set Destiny 2 on a better path for the hardcore fans and people that want to pour more time into the game. It’s nice that there appears to be more transparency from the studio, but we’ll see exactly what they are willing to share tomorrow.
We’ll be watching the news tomorrow for all updates from Bungie on Destiny 2, and we’ll let you know what you can expect from Destiny 2 and Bungie going forward.
