Recently, Bungie announced a slew of news about Destiny 2 on its official blog page. Most of the announcements in the blog post concerned upcoming changes to the game. One of the most talked about announcements in the post is the game coming to the PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X. The news was met with mixed reactions by Destiny 2 gamers.
According to Bungie, Destiny 2 has been modified specifically for the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro to take advantage of the consoles' upgraded hardware. Based on the wording of the blog post, it seems like Bungie is betting on increasing the number of Destiny 2 players this Christmas with the modification.
The modified version of the game promises to enhance gameplay by introducing high-dynamic-range lighting and 4K resolution when played on the new consoles. Destiny 2 for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will be released on December 5 with the Curse of Osiris and Season Two.
While most Destiny 2 gamers fully support Bungie's efforts in reaching the game's full potential by modifying it for the new consoles, a high number of players feel that the video game developer should concentrate on making more content for the game instead. Most complaints about the upcoming Destiny 2 rollout concern its content, particularly on levels between 290 to 350. Both casual and devoted Destiny 2 players have shared their thoughts on the matter through social media and online forums such as Reddit.
One Destiny 2 gamer, StraightedgexLiberal, started a subreddit thread on the game's official Reddit page, suggesting that dedicated fans of the game should stop playing to get Bungie's attention. So far, a number of the subreddit's members have stated that they have already stopped playing the game.
"It's happening. I found the stats on daily players. They lost about 800,000 in the last week. I think there's going to be a big drop this week as they've run out of new things to keep people going week to week," one commenter wrote.
"I'm getting on the stop playing train. Played D1 for a few hours on 98 percent of nights for the past three years, find myself five weeks into D2 staring at my milestone list with 3 x 305 characters and just deciding to log off. The combination of lack of endgame, pointless endgame loot, token system and static rolls simply makes it pointless to play anymore," wrote another.
