Destiny has without a doubt been one of the most talked about games of any other since it released last year and that is likely not going to be changing anytime soon. We previously heard Bungie say that the money put into Destiny was part of a 10 year plan and now they have given even more details on the future.
In an interview with GamesRadar+, Destiny’s Engineering Lead Luke Timmins spoke about the future of Destiny and how seriously they are taking their ten-year plan moving forward. The most interesting aspect is that he confirmed we will continue to use our same character created Guardians that we made from the start.
“We certainly take it seriously that Destiny is a ten-year thing. It’s a long-term thing and with these adventures that we’re adding my contract to you – and any player – is that your Guardian will always be there.”
While this is something that many expected, with MMOs being the same it is interesting to have confirmation on the subject from Bungie themselves.
The biggest problem here though is how far behind newcomers will feel multiple years in, especially in the shooter genre that usually you can just hop in and be on a close to level playing ground with.
The Taken King is the first major expansion for the game, but I’m sure we’ll see a Destiny 2 and beyond in that span as well. As a result, we’ll have to wait and see just how they handle transitions when they aren’t just merely expansions with new missions and such like we’ve gotten so far.
