Bungie talks 'Destiny' multiplayer pre-alpha, Xbox 360 and Xbox One complaint

David Dague has responded to a fan complaint in regards to the upcoming multiplatform software product, "Destiny." According to a report from Push Square on April 29, the community manager of Bungie was asked why his company has been ignoring the Xbox 360 and Xbox One communities. Before working on the new intellectual property, the development team was responsible for the popular "Halo" series on Xbox consoles.

For "Destiny," however, Bungie decided to partner with Sony Computer Entertainment. As a result, the PS3 and PS4 versions will be getting exclusive contents such as first access to the looming multiplayer beta test. The media assets shown so far came from the PS4 version as well. Due to these factors, some of the Xbox fans may feel somewhat slighted.

David Dague replied to the complaint by saying that Bungie is not ignoring the Xbox 360 and Xbox One players. The development team has been listening and answering as many questions as they can. He went on to disclose that prospective buyers from all platforms are "very much" on their minds day in and day out. You can find his full remarks below (courtesy of Bungie):

Who’s ignoring you? We’re right here; making a game we hope you’ll love. We’re listening to your questions, and answering the ones we can. If you’re a gamer who wants to play a Bungie game, you’re very much on our mind – every day.

The community manager also talked a little bit about the pre-alpha build of "Destiny." Despite the milestone, the studio still has plenty of work to do to get the video game to alpha and beta states. Due to the incomplete nature of the current build, Bungie is only letting friends and family members test out the multiplayer pre-alpha.

The general public will have to wait for the aforesaid multiplayer beta, which is due to launch sometime later this summer. The final product, which is being published by Activision, has an official release date of Sept. 9 on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles in the North American region. You can find a screen from the official Twitter page of the shared-world first-person shooter with the image located near the top side of the article. The first-person shooter can be ordered from Amazon.com in the following link: "Destiny."
