Destiny 2: Beyond Light is sort of right here and with much more expansions on the horizons and tons of recent options on the way in which, there’s a lot to stay up for as a Guardian within the skies. One factor gamers cannot stay up for, nevertheless, is a brand new recreation engine for Destiny 2. Bungie confirms that th is will “never” occur as a result of it is simply not wanted.
From character customization particulars to rotating content material, there are a number of adjustments forward for the Bungie shooter. That being mentioned, a typical query these devs get is: Will there be a brand new engine? While Bungie has upgraded the present engine from Destiny 1 to Destiny 2, there hasn’t been a necessity for a wholly new one to be applied.
The query once more got here up throughout a latest AMA on Reddit, to which Bungie engineering supervisor Chris Kosanovich responded:
“Regarding the engine, Aldridge may speak to this more but every engine I’ve ever used has strengths and weaknesses. I certainly would not classify the Destiny engine as archaic and I certainly wouldn’t want to try to build Destiny in any other engine. Of course there are processes that are slow and we’re making improvements to address our tech debt. Not totally sure what you mean about a ‘new engine in future titles’ but we updated the engine from D1 to D2 and continue to update the engine during D2 development. We’ll never make a whole new engine and move destiny to it, but any future games that Bungie makes wouldn’t necessarily need to use the Destiny tech if it doesn’t make sense for that game.”
So whereas Destiny 2 is “never” getting a brand new engine, that does not imply that there is not a number of new to take pleasure in!
