Destiny will be a 10-year project according to Bungie

With Destiny’s Beta now over, everybody’s counting the days until September 9th when the full game releases. While there have been some complaints regarding explorable locations and mission length, all in all the game is looking pretty solid. Bungie themselves revealed earlier this week that Destiny will not undergo any major changes following the Beta. However, there will be some tweaks and optimizations as well as lots of new content to be added post-launch. But we won’t be looking at just a couple of new locations and some more pieces of gear as Bungie has big plans for their upcoming title. Senior Environment Artist Jason Sussman revealed some very interesting details about the game in a recent interview with Gaming Bolt.

At one point during the discussions he was asked about expansion packs and if any possible new content will come for free or at a price. Sussman declined to comment but made another reveal instead. “We’re not necessarily talking about that, but what I can say is that it is a 10-year project and we’re definitely looking forward for the future,” he said. “Oh yeah, we’re definitely looking to keep growing the franchise, but we’re not really going into any details on that.” While he declined to give any further details it’s nice to hear that Bungie is confident in Destiny’s success. Destiny certainly isn’t the first MMO to promise us all sorts of great things, but let’s hope that it will be among the few that can actually deliver on that promise.

Elsewhere, the artist talks about a possible PC version of the game but doesn’t reveal anything new and just reiterates that Bungie is focusing only on the consoles at the moment. “But honestly we’ve been so focused on delivering the game on four consoles and it’s such an undertaking. It’s the most inclusive thing that the Bungie has been working on. We’ll see what the future holds, but for right now we’re focused on these four consoles.” Sad news for the glorious PC master race for now, but I think Bungie will eventually come around and release a PC version of Destiny as well. We also learned from the interview that there are currently no microtransactions in the game and hopefully they will keep it that way as that’s a business practice that ruined more than a few MMOs.

Destiny will be released on September 9th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Make sure to check out the full interview at the link provided above and stay tuned for more news and updates.

    oh bungie plz.. destiny won’t be as good as WoW, and WoW should die at 10th anniversary and not have a new expansion, so you should put a goal of 7 years max cause WoW is a one time opportunity and u might want to work on the next project starting from now and learn from your mistakes blizzard! when it came to Titan, they were late by 2 years so start 2 year earlier and avoid this mistake, and don’t forget to discount 3 years from destiny so start 5 years earlier this time. there is almost no sarcasm here. simply saying fps isn’t as good.
