    Unofficial Look at Destiny's Story, Development, & Future

    http://kotaku.com/the-messy-true-sto...iny-1737556731

    Very interesting read... Quite long, but makes a lot of sense...

    TL;DR:

    - Destiny's original story was completely axed by Bungie's senior management less than a year out from launch, resulting in Destiny's writing team leaving the company, and the design team playing catch up since 2013

    - Destiny's design tools suck, and aren't user friendly, which is why redesigning anything major was off of the table, so non-writers basically spliced the a lot of existing stuff together to make it work.

    - Despite a shitty story, Bungie thought the game would be well received, with the graphics and gameplay carrying it, but wasn't at all. The company reportedly missed out on a huge bonus from Activision as a result.

    - Because Destiny's design tools suck, they haven't been designing new content, but instead have been rebadging previously cut content for DLCs. Everyone else has been working on either fixing the released game or developing Destiny 2

    - TTK is the last scheduled expansion, at the moment. Rumor has it, the new emotes will generate funds in place of 2 new expansions over the next year, and Bungie will release the remaining Mars raid and European "dead zone" areas either as free content next year or as part of Destiny 2, due to release a year from now.

    Being in software - I totally understand all this intimately - which also means we all need to actually be impressed with what has been delivered under these constraints. Its pretty incredible.

    i want to be positive about it but i really have a hard time unfortunately. yeah they did some work despite setbacks but it still is kinda unsettling how they are trying to make up for it.
    i cant deny destiny is fun, but bungie themselves lost my respect because of said above. good article

    We only have a small amount of destiny guys so its hard when everyone just does it on their own schd. Why do you think I put up so many raid group posts. I'm trying to get everyone ample time to raid and have people to raid with - I just posted for sunday night.

    Trek and vash both are using LFG to find raid groups. To me that sucks.
