Held last week in Bungies Studio, the Destiny Community Summit Destiny brought together players from around the world to discuss Bungie's state of play. It is no secret that interest in the sequel has declined rather quickly, with even the top personalities of the community stepping away to play other titles.
There was a question as to whether the Community Summit would be a great public relations ploy for Warmind enlargement, or would it actually be the catalyst for valuable change in Destiny 2 . The church has now returned home, and the summit reception was overwhelmingly positive. This is just a small selection of answers from some of the notable figures in the Destiny community.
This is the first time that my feedback has been taken seriously or important. I hope that happens again in the future.

To all at Bungie, thank you for having us. I was hopeful that this would be beneficial for both Bungie and the community to learn from each other, and I am very confident that we have achieved that. I will work on a video, which I can share for you.

We need to play some new stuff. May have loved [redacted] and all [redacted]but the best part was that they had long, intense conversations with developers across multiple teams and they could actively respond to feedback and draw direct conclusions about the community's desires.

The conversations we held at the Destiny Community Summit have restored much of my lost faith.
In addition, it seemed to be really productive for the future.
My 2 cents: the community and our wishes for the game could not have been presented much better.

Of course, not only the community was positively the event. Even Bungie developers were pleased with how the talks had gone.
Destiny Summit was a very positive experience for me. Thanks to dad @Bungie for putting together and bringing in a group of Destiny experts who will give us some positive feedback about the game and also give us the chance to meet and have real conversations.

The last 2 days have been great. I really appreciate anyone who pauses their lives to spend time with us. It was incredibly rewarding for us.
Honestly, today felt a bit like a summer camp.
Safe travel to all who drive home.

Thanks to all who participated in the community summit have taken the time to chat with us. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. Destiny is as much your game as it is ours. / End sappy tweet

The fruits of most of these talks are unlikely to be seen until September, which is the next big step on the development roadmap after Warmind released next month. Still, it's great to see that a number of voices critical of Destiny 2 and Bungie over recent months have shown some positivity about the future of the game.
The task of Bungie is to keep the communication channels open in order to develop these changes and new functions. Ideas are great in theory, but it is the execution of these ideas that will truly show how good the Destiny community summit was for the future of Destiny 2
