Bungie has promised important changes for the Destiny saga, and everything seems to indicate that they will be transformed into a very relevant modification of their specific business model for Destiny 2. According to a leak, made public by an article that has broken the embargo by the portal Engadget, and that has already been removed, the game will embrace a free-to-play model soon under the name of Destiny 2: New Light.
It’s all part of the announcement of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, a content also filtered for Destiny 2 that consists of an expansion for this one, apparently, will go on sale on September 17. Next to it, The core of the game will become free-to-play, while the downloadable content and expansions will become a premium content on demand for those who wish to acquire it.
The game itself “This is a radical change for the Destiny franchise, which seeks to get away from formulas of other free video games such as Fortnite”, comments the deleted article about Destiny 2: New Light. ” Previously, players paid for the game in advance, and then bought large expansions to gain access to new raids, quests, and items. Now the game itself will be free, while the additional content will be available in the form of additions to the letter as Shadowkeep itself.
This afternoon we can leave doubts regarding the possible turn of the Destiny series to the free-to-play format, and that is when the press conference is planned by Bungie herself to explain her future plans.
Of course, all this comes to the thread of the separation by Bungie of Activision, millionaire maneuver that occurred in January of this year. This is going to bring many changes, for example, an information that has already been anticipated and that points to a possible crossed save for Destiny 2, which could end up leading to a cross game. At the moment only Xbox One and PC have been confirmed to have this kind of support, leaving aside PlayStation 4.
