Destiny 2’s Developers Are Playing The Game At Home Now

A big Destiny 2 reveal is coming this week when Bungie shows off the first gameplay during a livestream on May 18. While you wait for that, Bungie today published the first Bungie Podcast since 2014. It’s a wonderful, hour-long discussion with Destiny 2 game director Luke Smith and project lead Mark Noseworthy, alongside community manager Eric Osborne.

The full podcast is well worth a listen for fans of the series. One of the interesting bits is that Destiny 2’s developers are playing the game in its entirety at home on a public test realm. Smith said it has been “pretty motivating” to play the game at home, as it inspires and energizes the team to come back to work with ideas for how to further improve the game.

“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 n 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.”

Also during the podcast, Smith talked about how launching Destiny 2 is like the birthing process…in a way. “I think it’s a birth; basically, like, Destiny 2 the baby is going to be born either way,” he said. “It’s coming. And so, we’re just going to get to a place where we have to push. I have no kids. It’s going to happen no matter what.”

Destiny 2 launches on September 8 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as PC. The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal event is taking place on May 18, and you can expect GameSpot to bring you all the news and coverage at that time.

In other news, publisher Activision has said Destiny 2’s PC version will have “meaningful features that are bespoke for the PC community.” And for the game overall, you can expect a steady stream of add-on content from Bungie and the other studios wording on the game.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
