Activision, right sorry. Still, point stands. Just look at Resident Evil 5 and 6. Capcom wanted to get the money COD was dishing out, so they made it more action focused. Destiny suffers from a bad case of developers seeing money, and thinking same old tactics are more effective then actual originality. And with Destiny's budget, I wouldn't be surprised if it was completely Gutted for dlc, and to be made more generalized for a wider audience. It doesnt matter which AAA company it is, a developer (Theres a difference between the individual companies under the bigger name umbrellas. EA, or Activision are essentially producers, while it is the branches that do the work. IE: EA own's and gives Bioware their budget. hile Bioware is the developer of their games.) still has to fight tooth and claw to get any original thought approved. It's easy if it has been successfully done before, but if it's something too new or too complicated, company's start to worry about projected sales. You know what that is right? It's when a business looks at what has sold before and how much, and by that calculation next year they decide how much money they should make when it becomes january 17th, or so on so forth. Burger king for example, would remember that on July 15th they made a low amount of sales, lets say a few hundred dollars, very very slow day. Because it was so little last year, the following july 15th they put fewer workers in that day. So that they dont lose money due to hourly wages. In games and movies, sales are projected by what was more popular the previous year. You cant project sales for something that is new, or too original. Thus Destiny as it was, or at least how we think it was, gutted.
Azzmeister: There is a lot that can be used for plot, one may only look at the extensive codex they provide on the website. (Further proof there was more, but no longer there in the game.)
Though A new enemy would be nice. Perhaps the Heart of the Garden was not destroyed. And Darkness makes it's own beings, a enemy force that personifies it's will. Like a hive mind.... I think a good example is Geth under reaper control, or the Collectors would be a better one.
