It's great Destiny 2 is coming to PC, but what about those who missed out on Destiny 1?
It's no secret that the original Destiny faced a troubled development. The game originally announced is completely different story from the game that Activision ultimately published. During the final months of development, they scrapped the original story. The game we received was cobbled together from the pieces.
One of the things Bungie proudly boasted during the pre-release period of Destiny 1 was that your character would carry over through all the Destiny games -- a series planned to be part of a ten year cycle.Now that Destiny 2 is actually out all that my character really seems to carry over is the face I created at the beginning of Destiny 1 before promptly hiding behind a fancy space helmet.
A bigger issue for me is the closed ecosystems created by having three different platforms. Worse, one of those platforms (PC) is on a delayed release schedule. The best part of Destiny is the community you play with. Some of my friends wanted to play on PC, some want to stick with Playstation. My brother plays Xbox One. I understand that there are plenty of reasons to not include crossplatform gameplay, but just being able to transfer my progress between each version of the game would be welcomed feature.
C'mon, if you're going to make me buy it a couple times over, at least let me play it with one character.
