Bungie Outlines Destiny 2 Plans

Bungie.net offers a new The State of Destiny 2 update, outlining plans to improve the first-person shooter sequel, as well as their plans to be more communicative going forward amid complaints about their lack of transparency. The lengthy post discusses fixes for the game's grind with changes to the XP system and better rewards for their most dedicated players. It also goes into detail on new features, items (including a new Masterworks weapon tier), and changes coming in a couple of different patches expected next month. As said, the post is quite lengthy, but the introduction summarizes things concisely:
Hey everyone,

With Destiny 2’s console and PC launches behind us, we want to take some time to talk with you about Destiny 2 – specifically where it’s at today, and where it’s going. Our team has been reading feedback and working on updates to improve the game. We’ve also been reading some tough criticism about our lack of communication, and we agree we need to be more open.

Going forward, Destiny 2’s post-launch game systems, features, and updates are being designed specifically to focus on and support players who want Destiny to be their hobby – the game they return to, and a game where friendships are made. We want Destiny to be a game that fits into your life, providing you with reasons to log in and play with your friends, clans, and families. We want Destiny to be a world you want to be a part of.

A month ago, we published a list of improvements on the blog. Today, we’re going to revisit that list and update its status, and share some of the work the team is readying for December, January, and beyond.

We know it’s frustrating when there isn’t enough of a dialog with the development team. You have our commitment that we’re going to do a better job going forward.
