Activision brings Vicarious Visions in to work on Destiny

We all go together.

Some big things are happening with Destiny. We already knew that Destiny 2 was on its way, and there’s the rumor that it’s coming to the PC as well as consoles. Activision has now also moved the Vicarious Visions studio to working on Destiny in an as-of-yet unspecified role. Vicarious Visions is best known for its work with the Skylanders franchise; the studio is also preparing a remastered Crash Bandicoot for the PlayStation 4.

Meanwhile, players currently playing the game as it exists now will be dealing with another iteration of the game’s matchmaking system. The latest overhaul puts less weight on skill-based matching in favor of lower latency and filling out groups, so no one is left getting tossed into half-full matches. Of course, this means that you may wind up with players further outside of your skill window… so it’s still a work in progress. It remains to be seen how well this will play out.
