Activision CEO Admits Destiny’s Story Left Something To Be Desired, Vows To Improve with Sequel

Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg talked with VentureBeat‘s Dean Takahashi during E3 2017, especially in regards to a company’s dual heavy-hitters first-person shooter games due this Fall: Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2.

While deliberating a latter, a Activision CEO concurred that a story in a initial Destiny diversion left “something to be desired”, and that’s something both Activision and Bungie intend to repair with a sequel.

We didn’t even exhibit Destiny 2 during a exhibit event. We suggested it about a month progressing with a dual cinematic resources with Cayde-6 and Zavala mapping out a storyline and a characters you’re going to get to play with. The meditative with Destiny 2 was — Destiny had so many soaring strengths. It was so engaging, so fresh, so innovative, a new genre. But we’ll all openly acknowledge that a story left something to be desired. We had some areas to urge there. We wanted to lead with a good account and good characters you’ll bond with on an romantic level. The plan was to lead with, “Hey, we wanna hang out with those guys. we wish to quarrel in that battle. we wish to be a partial of that world.”

Those dual cinematic resources we put out about a month before a eventuality were dual of a many rarely enchanting resources we’ve ever combined in Destiny’s history. Then, since we led with storytelling during that initial beat, when we got to a eventuality we had all of a gameplay powder dry. We only had a extensive volume of content, an hour’s value of calm on stage, and hands-on calm to uncover during a reveal.

Destiny 2 will be accessible for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on Sep 6th, with a beta exam scheduled for Jul 18 (early entrance PS4 for those who pre-ordered) – Jul 19 (early entrance Xbox One for those who preordered) – Jul 21 (open for everyone). The diversion will also launch on PC around Battle.net about a month and a half later, on Oct 24th, with a beta exam scheduled in August.
