Bungie Issues An Apology to Fans

Bungie Issues An Apology to Fans - MMORPG.com

Bungie's Luke Smith, Creative Director for The Taken King, has taken to the Weekly Update to apologize to veteran Destiny players for the recent dissatisfaction with the pre-purchase program announced for the expansion. Players loudly complained at the inequity of having to re-purchase the full game and the expansion in order to get the collector's edition perks. As a result, those in-game perks will now be able to be purchased by players for $20.

I am Luke Smith, Creative Director on Destiny: The Taken King.

Many, many years ago, I wrote to you each week in this spot. We talked about Battle Rifles, we talked about stuff we weren't going to talk about, and at some point I did a horrible hand-drawing of an upcoming map and teased you with it in the Weekly Update.

Anyone who knows me knows I can be sarcastic, anyone who remembers podcasts I've done knows that I can be pretty blunt, and anyone who’s watched me in a ViDoc knows I'm pretty unpolished.

However, most of you don't know me.

Reading my interview with Eurogamer and imagining it came from some random developer of a game I love - that random developer looks like an Asshat.

But that Asshat was me - and those words rightfully anger you.

I'm sorry.

My words made it sound as if Bungie doesn't care about their most loyal fans.

We do care. We are listening. And we will make it right.

Here's what we're doing about the Collector's Edition of Destiny: The Taken King...

We’re actively working to make the digital content from the Collector’s Edition available in a $20 upgrade bundle (suggested retail price), available on 9/15/2015. If you purchase a stand-alone version of Destiny: The Taken King, or already have, you'll be able to pick up the digital items as soon as they are available.

There is more on the Destiny site with more details about each edition and more about what players purchasing the $20 items can expect to find. Check it out.
