There’s No 10-Year Plan for Destiny
Destiny, clearly one of the biggest games around at the moment. Alongside the game we always heard these big rumors about the “10- year plan” between Activision and Bungie about getting out a new game or expansion every year for the next 10 years.
In the latest issue of Edge Magazine, Bungie’s Community and Marketing Relations Manager Eric Osborne confirms that a 10 year agreement exists, but that it’s not what you think it is.
“Those things were so distracting, and not about the experience we were creating. It just became the narrative. I mean, I drive a Honda Civic. I don’t know shit about $500 million. A ten- year plan? It’s a ten-year partnership agreement. It has nothing to do with the development of the game proper. To think that somehow, before Destiny had shipped, we had some ten-year plan written down somewhere? It’s comical. We allowed the narrative to get constructed that Bungie is just a corporate entity and not a bunch of humans, a collection of people who are just trying to make a really great game.”
So there you have it, no big conspiracy as far as I can tell. With The Taken King up and about, are you still spending those multiple hours grinding away? Or was it not all what you thought? Leave a comment down below.
