What's in store for Destiny 2? Bungie

The Destiny 2 community has long expressed concerns over the game’s state since 2020. As the developer fails to address or resolve players’ qualms, Destiny 2 Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn goes to Twitter to affirm their plans to loyal fans. In the post, Blackburn stated that "taking some time to validate our plans, but expect a state of Destiny 2021 next season."

With the promise of a better Season 13 this year, fans still can't get over Bungie's implementation of "sunsetting" last year. The developed recently announced that some weapons are returning with higher base power levels. Thus, fans can't help but feel like their fears are coming to fruition. Most would prefer to have Destiny 2 be reverted to its old system.

Although Blackburn’s statement was vague, fans are trying to comprehend what was meant when he said 2021 was going to be different. After all, the current season is drawing to a close on February 9. Bungie is yet to make any specific announcements regarding what’s in store for fans in Season 13. However, many in the player base have already speculated a bit using the season's icon and bits of lore.

At the moment, there's no news whether Bungie will respond to the issues regarding equipment sunsetting. Though they have been tackling some of the criticism thrown at them in their blog posts. A significant nerf applied to the Stasis Hunter's Shatterdive ability and Fissures fragment aims to amend any imbalances in the game, followed by a statement from Bungie that they will share more about this at a later date.

Based on the community response, players still have mixed feelings moving forward about what these new changes may bring to Destiny 2. Blackburn believes that new content will offer players enough excitement to make 2021 a momentous year for the game. Still, the enthusiasm seems to wane as no comments or follow-ups were made regarding the major issues, which fans feel need to be addressed first.

In a few weeks, Bungie may give some answers that may just reinvigorate interest in or Destiny 2, but fans can only hope.
