Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie. While the first game wasn't well-received, the sequel fixes a lot of the problems that plagued the original. Now that Bungie isn't working with Activision, it looks like the team is changing its business model to make future content more accessible.
Just like Fortnite, Destiny 2 will offer a $10 seasonal pass going forward. A post on the developer's website said the following.
It'll be interesting to see how this works out. Hopefully, gamers will buy the $10 passes to access the latest content, but there may be a backlash because Destiny 2 is a AAA game, and not a free-to-play experience. Even the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion costs a pretty penny.
A new chapter
Nightmares are coming
With the release of the Shadowkeep expansion, Destiny 2 starts a brand new chapter separate from Activision. This edition has a year's worth of content, too.
