Original Destiny Failed to Release New Content Fast Enough, Admits Activision

Original Destiny Failed to Release New Content Fast Enough, Admits Activision

Speaking to our friend at GameIndustryBiz, Activision CEO stated that the original Destiny ticked every checkbox, a lot of things were done perfectly, but one thing that Bungie failed to keep a tab on properly was the demand of the players for the new content. According to Eric, the first game was well received but the game lacked in one area and it was the rolling out new content and the studio could not keep up with the demand for the new content for the game.

As such, Activision intends to keep the content train a-rolling for Destiny 2.

Itau Unibanco Holding SA (ADR) (NYSE:ITUB) change date of earnings release
As from this date, the Company will disclose its result after the closing of the stock markets in Brazil and in the United States. Over the last three months, the shares of the company have changed -9.41% and performed 10.74% over the last six months.

With every new expansion or huge content drop, Destiny made powerful steps forward and created a better game experience overall, but those steps were not taken often. One thing it wasn't so keen on, however, was the barren, gaping wasteland of time between Destiny's content updates.

"If you have an annual reset like we do with Call of Duty, you run the risk of people not coming back because that investment didn't carry over to the new game".

Iran Beaten by Angola at FIBA U-19 World Cup
Canada, looking for its first medal at the tournament, will face either France or Puerto Rico on Friday in the quarter-finals. Quickley, starting at point guard, had five points but dished out six assists to lead the US team to a 98-65 win over Italy.

As Hirshberg explains, several Activision studios have been brought on-board the Destiny 2 team in order to help Bungie keep players satisfied with new content and experiences year long.

Hirshberg confirms that the game will have a greater number of developers supporting it, including Vicarious Visions and High Moon, enabling the company to maintain a "robust pipeline of content" into the future. I feel like that, as great as [DLC packs] The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King, and Rise of Iron all are, clearly there was appetite for more. Of course while there are lulls in content between major expansions and events, Hirshberg says this can be improved for Destiny 2. Droughts are bound to happen, but if Bungie can keep those droughts short they may be able to dominate even more of the year than normal. We'll see the results for ourselves when Destiny 2 releases on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6th while the PC version arrives on October 24th.
