Destiny 2 developers are already playing the full game at home

4.4
Destiny 2 still won’t hit shelves for several months, but apparently developers are already enjoying the experience in the comfort of their homes.

Developer Bungie recently released its first podcast since 2014 (MP3 link), hosted by game director Luke Smith, project lead Mark Noseworthy, and community manager Eric Osborne. The three developers took an hour to discuss some ins and outs of Destiny 2 and its development, during which they revealed that the game is in its final build and is currently being played on a private server by developers at their houses.

“We have the game at home, which is awesome,” Smith said. “We have the whole game at home. On a private test realm. And we’re playing the sh** out of the game. That actually becomes pretty motivating to get back to work, because you can see, so clearly, inspiration and things that are going amazingly. And you can also see so many opportunities. We’re not done. We’ve got plenty of work in front of us, but having a version of the game where you can sit on your couch in front of your TV– it feels totally different than playing at your desk.”


Destiny 2‘s official gameplay reveal is dropping on May 18th, when fans can finally set eyes on what the developers have been enjoying and possibly check out a new weapon class for the series.

Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 8th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Tom so they have around 4 months to spare so i better not be seeing some game breaking glitches when they have the time to go around fixing all this.


Yea you would hope but I highly doubt it.

This makes me really nervous... The original destiny missed such a huge pool of potential because its moronic design and not just fully adopting mmo styling, for the devs to already be at home "playing the full game" more than likely means that destiny 2 is going to follow the same misguided and limiting psuedo mmo style that caused the first to flop for many. Please, please PLEASE let this not be true.
