Destiny 2: Bungie wants you to complain about its abundance of story


Naw, we're good.

Speaking with IGN, Bungie has said it hopes Destiny 2 fans complain about the abundance of story content within the upcoming game.

Senior Narrative Lead, Jason Harris, and Cinematic Lead, Matthew Ward, both conceded story was something the original Destiny 2 lacked.

“I can’t emphasise enough that we are ready to tell stories in this world,” Harris said. “Big, expansive, and cinematic stories.”

“We certainly learned a lot by listening to people, by playing it with other people, by exploring the world in a one to one manner with our audience,” Ward added. “As we explored it, we found stories that we personally wanted to tell.

“We’re learning from all the feedback we got from Destiny 1, and applying it.”

Story can be found in every corner of the world, it seems.

“I think players are ultimately going to see a wide variety of story channels and an eclectic number of outlets to see story infused throughout the game,” Harris continued. “There is story everywhere.”

“I hope people complain about how much story we have,” Ward joked. “That would be the Reddit thread I’d like to read.”

Destiny 2 will focus on the Guardians’ loss of Light and the quest to presumably gain it back.

Destiny 2 heads to Xbox One and PS4 on 6 September, followed by a release on Windows PC on 24 October. A beta starts on 18 July on PS4, 19 July on Xbox One, and at a later date on Windows PC.
