Phil Spencer Talks Destiny 2 and Belives the Game Will Have a Solid Playerbase for Decades to Come
Bungie teased its mass of first-person shooter fans with the Destiny 2 reveal trailer, getting gamers more excited than ever before for the upcoming sequel. The title aims to be an entirely separate experience from the original title, which attracts both old and new fans alike. Phil Spencer talks Destiny 2 and asserts his high hopes for the franchise alongside its ever-growing fan base. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, made a very bold claim to the title, stating that it will be a game that millions of people still play together online, even decades later, comparing it to massively multiplayer online role-playing games like World of Warcraft.
In his interview with Gamasutra, Phil Spencer had this to say – “But you know, Destiny 2‘s gonna be one of these games that I expect five, six, seven years from now, people are still going to be playing that game. It’s going to be a little bit like WoW. Which you know, whatever it’s been, 10 years later, 15 years later, millions of people play the game.”
Destiny 2 will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, allowing for PC players to take advantage of the open-world territory and gameplay, unlike the first time around. Taking advantage of the dynamic marketplace that Steam brings to the gaming world could be a lucrative move for Activision, but it has yet to be announced if this will be the route that they go through, or if the game will use a standalone client.
New content will still be coming to Destiny, although there’s no definition on how much content will still be releasing for it. However, Bungie assures players that they will continue support for Destiny alongside Destiny 2.
