Destiny developers clarify the shift to event-based updates after The Taken King

This seems like a tonal shift.

Players of Destiny might well have expected the game’s future updates to resemble what had happened before The Taken King, with medium-sized DLC packs containing more content. But that’s not the direction that the game is going, and a recent update from the development team clarifies what is in the works. While the game is moving to a more event-based update model for this version of the game, that doesn’t mean that the game is abandoning big content upgrades, just changing how they’re put forth.

Big updates and content are still planned, but the game’s developers want to avoid some of the longer gaps in earlier development. Unfortunately, the development team does still feel the need to be vague about what that content entails, but what is absolute is that not all of those updates will be limited-time events; they’ll just be released on that sort of schedule. While it doesn’t confirm what’s coming, it does at least reassure players that more substantial updates are still on the table.

I want so badly to play this on a PC. Come on Bungie, quit holding out on the master race.

My name is TheChiHawk and I play Destiny. 
I understand that the first step towards recovery is to admit that you have a problem. So, yeah. That’s what I’m doing. I have come to realize that I hate this game. With a passion. But I can’t stop playing it! Will someone please tell me what’s wrong with me? Help me before I throw my controller through my television!

I’m failing to see why it matters anyway. They’re already looking to get a sequel out there.

Yep I can’t even play through the base game because I haven’t shelled out more money for the expansion that I’m not even ready to play through yet. So Destiny is collecting dust on my shelf.

Polyanna The Sparrow racing thing is such an event, no? And that was not content players already owned, that is new. Right?

What is absolute is that not all of those updates will be limited-time events

What is also absolute is that all of those updates will lock players out of content that they already owned, unless they pay more money to buy the new stuff as well.
