Destiny 2’s future is set: Bungie just stacked the deck

Destiny 2’s future is set: Bungie just stacked the deck

This week Bungie reaffirmed their dedication to Destiny 2 and the entire Destiny IP in a major way. They've revealed that they'll be expanding their Bellevue, WA headquarters, investing in new key talent, and welcomed new members to the Bungie Board of Directors "from the Entertainment and Media Industry." Keep this moment in your mind - it may be a key point at which Bungie pushed Destiny beyond the borders of a traditional game, into the multi-media stratosphere.

Bungie is deleting a bunch of classic Halo data soon

Bungie is deleting a bunch of classic Halo data soon

We are quickly approaching the end of an era for some classic Halo games. Bungie has revealed that it will soon be taking down stats pages for a lot of classic Halo games, so if you have anything you want to save from way back when, now is the time to do it. It actually isn't as bad as it sounds at first blush because the website Bungie is taking offline hasn't been updated in nearly a decade, but some of those who played the Bungie-made Halo games when they were new may appreciate the opportunity to save their data anyway.

Destiny 2 on PC requires one-time SMS verification for some modes

Destiny 2 has seen a lot of major changes in the last 23 months alone. After it split from Activision, Bungie quickly recovered ground to make the controversial launch of the game nothing more than a distant memory. It will be competing for attention and gamer time with all the new games have that launched in the past few weeks, especially Cyberpunk 2077, but fans of the online sci-fi shooter still have a lot to look forward to, like the upcoming crossplay support. Before that happens, though, Bungie is addressing the white elephant in the room and requiring SMS verification on PCs in an attempt to curb cheating.

Old games, new content: Spider-man, GTAV, Destiny 2, now this is the way

Old games, new content: Spider-man, GTAV, Destiny 2, now this is the way

Over the last week we've become very aware of the fact that game developers are trying for a sea change. It might instead be that gamers are the ones that've made this change happen - maybe developers are only doing what the market demands they do in order to survive. In any case, we've seen three major games announced as new, their developers revealing that instead of making new games, they'll be putting more time and effort into the games that people already love.

Destiny 2 just became more than just a game

Destiny 2 just became more than just a game

This week Bungie announced that they'd be moving beyond the traditional model for games - beyond what we've come to expect from any major gaming developer. In the past, they'd release a new game every year, or a new game every few years. This was fine, when games were offline - and it's been acceptable even through more than two decades of Massively Multiplayer Online Games. With Destiny 2, Bungie's changed the way gamers will expect games to evolve.

Destiny 3 axed as Bungie adopts Disney-like “vault” model

Destiny 3 axed as Bungie adopts Disney-like “vault” model

The folks at Bungie responsible for Destiny and Destiny 2 just announced a landmark decision for the game - no new games! Instead, they've decided to adopt a Disney sort of "vault" model. Disney used to place certain big-name movies into the "Disney Vault" to create artificial scarcity (which worked GREAT before the internet). Bungie will place Destiny content in a "Destiny Content Vault (DCV)" when it becomes "older, less actively played content", so that they're able to concentrate on new content and content updates for the game currently called Destiny 2 for the foreseeable future.
