Bungie Will Address Destiny 2 Feedback, Future Plans Tomorrow

Bungie was supposed to have their third and final Curse of Osiris stream this week, a mere seven days out from the launch of the somewhat anticipated first DLC for Destiny 2, but after the recent controversies, the unusually silent developer has made a decision to cancel the Twitch stream. On the Destiny website, Bungie says that the trial features campaign missions on EDZ and Titan, the ability to explore both worlds, Crucible Quickplay Playlist for a taste of multiplayer, character progression up to level 7 (out of 20), clan functionality, and the ability to transfer all of your progress to the full game.

Right now, Destiny 2 feels at a tipping point.

Long-term issues with Destiny 2's token economy, end-game content, bugs and balance have bubbled away under the surface for months.

"Last weekend, we disabled a scaling mechanism that adjusted XP gains up and down without reflecting those adjustments in the UI", Bungie states in the latest update.

Over on the Bungie forums, the studio wrote: "Tomorrow, we had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of Curse of Osiris to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes".

It's all part of a four-tiered effort by Bungie to improve the Destiny 2 experience, including better rewards for advanced payers, more control over rewards, making shards useful, and providing "general quality fixes wherever possible".

At first, it had appeared that Bungie staff were planning to face the music on camera - and so some fans called foul when it was announced they would simply see a blog post instead. Hopefully that will start to change after Bungie's announcements this evening.

"Every medium has its strengths and weaknesses", Dague continued, speaking to fans on Twitter. I've read bounds of (different) community comments and I've contributed my own, and the consensus is. this game is not what we expected, and the amount of Bungie feedback concerning our extremely blunt and vocal feedback has been negligent. There will be other opportunities to highlight personalities who make cool stuff.
