Bungie created the online-only shooter video game Destiny 2. This was released way back September 9, 2014. Destiny is Bungie’s first new console franchise since the Halo series. The game is set in a mythic world and has elements of role-playing.
Now, Bungie has posted job listings on its website for the development of the second Destiny game. Some postings suggest that there will be a small scale story content in Destiny 2. This is an all new approach by Bungie in the storytelling of the game.
Postings Hint at Small Scale Story
The very specific focus of the gaming company in the development of the game’s story includes hirings for Head of Narrative Development, Narrative Director, and Live Narrative Director. The latter two job openings have a job description on specifically making narratives in this video game’s world.
The Live Narrative Director is different from the standard Narrative Director. This job opening requires a potential worker to “direct the storytelling efforts for regular, small-scale Destiny releases throughout the calendar year.” This suggests that there will be smaller free updates for the game. There may be story-oriented moments which will be shown at different intervals throughout the game. As compared to its first version, the game may also be giving more attention to the narrative rather than just focusing on the main game and the consequently paid expansions.
Destiny 2 Will Be Better than the First
With these new additions to the game, fans will be definitely looking forward to the new game. They will expect a better storyline and an overall better gaming experience than the first Destiny game.
Bungie is also obviously trying to step up their A game because they have been getting high-profile personnel for the creation and development of their video games. These include their previous designer Josh Hamrick and Cameron Lee from BioWare who developed Dragon Age: Inquisition. They also got the Skylanders and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance developer Vicarious Visions as an assistant developer.
It will be interesting to think about how the people behind these new job positions at Bungie may improve the newest version of Destiny.
Bungie will launch Destiny 2 sometime in 2017.
