Bungie Confirms Destiny Progress to Carry Over to Sequels
Good news, Destiny players; Bungie's been listening to your requests and has some updates on future content for its shooter.
Bungie recently told IGN that it is listening to what its players are saying and are going to take their needs into account. "I want so badly for us to add more space to the Vault, because it is a constant, constant piece of feedback," Bungie's community manager, David "DeeJ" Dague, told IGN. "People want to be collectors. And, if we need to expand the Vault in order to let people hold on to their things, then it's something that we're talking about."
Dague also said that he was surprised by the community's dedication to Destiny. He explained, saying that the players dedication to uncovering all the hidden items and leveling to the max is something creators can easily underestimate. Because of this, it is listening to the community and hearing that along with more vault slots, the players want the ability to carry a higher maximum amount of Glimmer, Destiny's in-game currency.
While players can only old twenty items, twenty weapons and twenty pieces of armor and 25,000 glimmer at one time, Dague says about expanding, "I can tell you that these are things that we are discussing." He continued to say, "We're very sensitive to what people want, and we'd like to work as quickly as we can to integrate that stuff into the mix. So, while I can't make promises about the specific elements, I can say that we're going to continue to support this game."
This means a lot from a company who has openly expressed that Destiny will have a successor. Dague also told IGN all of your progress on Destiny will carry over to the sequel. "It's been no secret that we have a ten-year plan for the expansion and evolution of this franchise, and it's something that we're always dreaming about," Dague explained. "The idea is that the Guardian you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure. If you take a look at the way people have played other games for a long period of time, they've had a relationship with the same character for a very long time."
Dague feels that forming an attachment to your character is something that everyone can relate to, even himself with his own Destiny character. He's excited with the way that things are progressing, recounting how exciting it is to pass by his coworkers computers in the office and always see new weapons, exotics, etc. coming to life on their screens.
While Dague has no specifics on the sequel as far as development status and release date, you can rest assured that whenever it comes, you'll be able to bring your beloved character with you.
