Destiny 2: Should Bungie Drop Platform Exclusive Content?

The upcoming Destiny 2 raises some important questions about DLC exclusivity.

Look, timed exclusivity for certain content to certain platforms makes sense- Sony and Microsoft can no longer procure full exclusivity for games like they might have been able to before, in this multiplatform game development era, so they instead try to get timed exclusivity on game DLC, to be able to push the game on their platform.

It’s done everywhere- but never before has it been done as extensively as it was done with Destiny (which shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise, given the PS4’s massive success). With Destiny, exclusivity for certain content for PlayStation was for a period of an entire year, with the last bit of exclusive content actually having its exclusivity extended by another year (meaning that by the time Xbox fans get to play it, it will be next year, and Destiny 2 will be out- who will play it then? Who will even care?)

Timed exclusivity for DLC is (sadly) the norm- heck, Microsoft used to do it with Call of Duty (before Activision went over to Sony for that), and they even had a month’s exclusivity for Skyrim‘s DLC. But that was all for a month at most- PlayStation fans still got to play that content within a meaningfully reasonable period of time. How it is being done with Destiny, however, is unacceptable- and I seriously hope Bungie drop the practice with Destiny 2 or at least make the exclusivity last shorter.

    Why drop it when I own a PS4 as well as other consoles to choose what game offers me more. No point in crying about it as it is what it is.

      Because its a shady practice no matter who does it. Some people cant afford to own both consoles and locking them out of content is borderline criminal .

  • lagann

    They should at least scale it back to a reasonable time period…like a month.

    As an xbox owner, i refused to get that much into Destiny exactly because it felt i was a second class citizen. I mean…a year exclusivity for some content when they are charging me the same price is down right insulting.

    as a xbox/pc gamer i could care less about hawkmoon only on ps4 but dlc shouldnt be exclusive imo.skins guns im cool with but not put out dlc to make money why wouldnt it on the other platforms?

    Bungie and Activision probably did this because destiny was a new ip and they needed the foundation to make it successful immediately considering how much they spent on it. It will certainly be different for destiny 2 considering the momentum between Xbox and PlayStation is shifting again.
