Activision Comments On Destiny 1's Shortcomings

The publisher’s CEO wasn’t happy with the pace at which new content was released.

As the Destiny fan community gears up for the impending launch of Destiny 2, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg recently took a moment to reflect on the original Destiny and what he hopes will see improvement once the sequel launches.

Specifically, Hirshberg himself apparently wasn’t too thrilled with the oftentimes slow pace at which the original Destiny received new content, a gripe he shared with many players. Speaking in a recent interview with GI.biz, Hirshberg had this to say on the matter:

"I have not been happy with the cadence [of new content], We got a lot right with Destiny 1, but one of the things we didn't do was keep up with the demand for new content. I feel like that, as great as [DLC packs] The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King, and Rise of Iron all are, clearly there was appetite for more."

Fortunately, it looks like Bungie took that criticism to heart when it came time to develop Destiny 2, since it has recruited a number of additional developers (including Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios) to help with the workflow. Hopefully, this means that Destiny 2 won’t suffer from the long content droughts that plagued its predecessor.
