In the final section of the blog post by Destiny's leading franchise developer Luke Smith, he announced that over time Bungie will begin to remove seasonal content. The goal is to inflate less activity. Finally, Bungie admitted that it can not grow technically forever Destiny 2 ; Something has to give.
Usually players can be very scared of losing content and earning certain rewards. However, Bungie's decision to remove content at different times into fate and back from fate could lead to a stronger and more active community.
What do we know?
In the third episode of Smith's Director's Cut blog post, he teased how the squadrons will operate by Destiny 2 next year.
"There are going to be events this year that will last for three months, offering new rewards for hunting, although at the end of that period, some of the activity will go away," Smith said. "For a while will be the rewards. However, we also acknowledge that part of the game Destiny collects all the material. In future seasons, the weapons and legendary armor associated with these seasonal activities will be added to other reward sites. "
Smith names two main reasons for this change; The first are technical limitations. Destiny 2 is already a big game and can not grow forever. By replacing activities rather than leaving them in an irrelevant position, the studio will reduce the technical requirements for new seasons and enhancements.
The studio also wants the world to evolve and change with each season. Previously, Smith described events as triggering a story beat, dissolving it, and building the next in a single season. For Bungie, this means shaking off the old and accepting the new every three months.
A More Active World
Destiny 2 has many different ones To play activities with their own reason and their own kind of rewards. No matter how good an activity is, after two or three hundred runs it will be difficult to endure.
For example, the Black Armory Forge of December 2018 is one of Bungie's fastest and most exciting activities ever been added to Destiny. But it came out almost a year ago and is getting old.
Theoretically, Bungie could outsource these activities for the benefit of another. Removing game options may be good in some cases. It keeps players more compressed, which increases the matchmaking pool for recent activity. The more variety of players in an activity, the greater the likelihood that players will have a unique or memorable experience. While many casual gamers may be able to buy a few weapons from an activity and wait for them to reappear, the hardcore Destiny fans are not so relaxed.
Instead of leaving an activity in the middle of the season to do something different, players commit to getting everything out of one activity before it disappears. The players have a reason to keep going. Instead of dropping the season a few weeks later and promising to collect the remaining loot next season.
