Bungie Releases Statement on Destiny 2 Layoffs; No This Week in Destiny

Earlier today, the Destiny 2 Dev Team posted a comment addressing concerns and the road ahead.

The article, appropriately named “our path forward,” touches on concerns about Destiny 2‘s future and a brief comment about Monday’s layoffs.

Our Path Forward

This has been one of the most difficult weeks in our studio’s history, as we’ve parted ways with people we respect and admire. We’ve spent this week supporting one another, including those who are at the studio, as well as friends and colleagues who no longer are. 

We want to acknowledge the feedback and concerns you have about Lightfall and recent Seasons, as well as your responses to the reveal of The Final Shape. We know we have lost a lot of your trust. Destiny needs to surprise and delight. We haven’t done this enough and that’s going to change. 

To us the path forward is clear: We need to make The Final Shape an unforgettable Destiny experience. We want to build something that will be regarded alongside the best games we’ve ever made – a fitting culmination that honors the journey we’ve been on together for the past ten years. Forsaken, The Witch Queen, and The Taken King – these are the standard bearers we aim to live up to. 

We are intensely focused on exceeding your expectations for The Final Shape. Destiny 2 has more than 650 dedicated teammates pouring all their energy and expertise into delivering this epic moment and its subsequent Episodes. 

In the weeks ahead, you’ll be hearing more from us about what’s next on the short-term horizon, beginning with our next Season in late November. Afterwards, we’ll begin to unpack our team’s bigger, bolder, and brighter vision for The Final Shape, as well as the bridge we plan to build to take us all out of this Darkness and into the Light. 

See you starside, 

The Destiny 2 Dev Team

The statement is understandably straightforward. Enough to acknowledge what happened, but not enough to cause additional issues.

While many were hopeful a more optimistic look into the future would be offered, Bungie confirmed via X (Twitter) that This Week in Destiny is cancelled.

According to the post, the upcoming update will focus on Crucible changes. It’s possible other things will be revealed, such as the rumored delay of Destiny 2: The Final Shape, but these answers and more will be revealed next week.
