Bungie stands to lose a lot with a delay.
All those “leaks” about Destiny 2 weren’t revealed during Activision’s year end financial report but many other tidbits were revealed. Like how Bungie risks awarding a hefty amount of stock to Activision if the sequel doesn’t release in late 2017.
As per Kotaku’s Jason Schreier who spoke to two sources who knows what’s going on at Bungie, if Destiny 2 misses the bus in 2017, then it could look at a whole lot less independence. It was noted that the employees’ stock vesting schedule was based on releases and thus this incentivises the company to release Destiny 2.
On the one hand, it means no delay. On the other hand, if rumours of Destiny 2 being rebooted are true, then we could be looking at another situation where the sequel is released with less content than originally planned. And we all know how that worked out for the original.
