Destiny 2 underperforming says Activision

Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter which takes you all over the solar system. Players have to repel an assault on The Last City and stop the Red Legion from destroying the Sun. The title features artwork-like visuals and recently received its largest expansion yet.

According to a report by Game Informer, Destiny 2 isn't performing as well as Activision hoped. An excerpt from the article mentions what the company said during its quarterly fiscal report.

On the earnings call, Activision addressed this by saying that some of its franchises, Destiny, in particular, aren't performing as well as it hoped. The company promised investors new monetization options alongside moving content to market faster to rectify this. How this will affect the game remains to be seen, as it's clear Activision needs to make some changes to please investors.

It's unclear what this means for the future of the franchise, but here's hoping that Activision doesn't introduce even more microtransactions in there. Right now, the Eververse Store is unfair and it's very hard to get the cosmetic items you want. Unfortunately, the base armor is so strange-looking that you have to find sets that you like from random loot drops called "Engrams."

We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Hopefully Destiny 3 will take all the feedback Bungie has learned from Destiny 2 and implement it from the start. A lot of gamers left due to the unfair grind and haven't looked back.
