Bungie has responded to concerns about their upcoming PS4 and Xbox 720 video game, “Destiny,” requiring an always-online connection. According to a report by GameSpot on March 18, the developer disclosed that have some past experiences in dealing with the launch day load on the online servers. For now, the company is focusing on other tasks. You can check out the latest screens from the online first-person shooter in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Bungie below (courtesy of GameSpot):
This isn’t our first rodeo. Bungie is no stranger to anxious mobs of players who rush home after a midnight launch and put our best-laid plans to the test. Since a release date hasn’t even been announced yet, we’ll let our team focus on some less frightening but equally important challenges.
Another always-online video game, “SimCity,” has been heavily criticized due to launch issues with their servers, which prevented gamers from playing.
“Destiny” has been officially confirmed to come out for the PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360. The new intellectual property, which is being developed by Bungie and published by Activision, will also most likely be released for the unannounced Xbox 720 next-generation system.
