Activision wants to improve for Destiny 2 DLC
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg wasn’t entirely happy with the first Destiny. According to him, the DLC was disappointing for players. In a recent interview with GamesIndustry, he said that Activision is going to attack DLC creation differently this time around.
“I have not been happy with the cadence [of new content],” he admits.
“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. One of the things you’ll see post the launch of Destiny 2, is that we have got additional AAA developers from inside the Activision ecosystem working with Bungie on Destiny content, including Vicarious Visions and High Moon. That will allow us to keep an even more robust pipeline of content in the ecosystem.”
Furthermore, Hirshberg wants the sequel to stand on its own.
“Destiny 2 is a sequel, a hard reset, and that choice was not a casual decision. It was something we really debated, because if you are in a persistent universe, then obviously people’s investment continues to have value in perpetuity. However, it can also become intimidating for new players to join.”
Destiny 2 releases for PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, and PC on October 24.
