Destiny Will No Longer Receive Sandbox Updates As Bungie Focuses On Destiny 2

Bungie is currently working on the upcoming Destiny 2 that will launch this fall for PC and consoles. While the studio has supported Destiny after the announcement of its sequel but, the studio is now moving away from the first game, as Bungie has announced that the game will no longer receive any new updates.

Bungie announced that Destiny will no longer receive sandbox updates which bring gameplay balances and tweaks for weapon archetypes. According to Bungie, the studio’s sole focus in now the sequel to the game and that is why there will be no updates for the first one.

While fans are excited for the upcoming Destiny 2 but, many were disappointed after learning that the game will not have dedicated servers. However, Bungie has explained the reason behind the lack of dedicated servers. According to Bungie, the game will use one of the servers meaning players will never again suffer a host migration during their Raid attempt.

Every activity in Destiny 2 is hosted by one of our servers. That means you will never again suffer a host migration during your Raid attempt or Trials match. This differs from Destiny 1, where these hosting duties were performed by player consoles and only script and mission logic ran in the data center.

However, fans are worried that Peer-to-peer connections for the PC version will give way to cheaters but, Bungie is confident that there are enough security checks that will make the life of the cheater harsh and short.

Our security Ninjas have spent several years building a plan for how to engage with this new and vibrant community. We have a variety of top-secret strategies to ensure that the life of a cheater in Destiny 2 PC will be nasty, brutish, and short.

Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at Bungie and is scheduled to launch on September 8, 2017, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version of the game will launch at a later date.
