While the core of the Destiny franchise is in the fun of taking on strikes and raids alongside friends, hoarding loot and constantly leveling up, the PvP is an essential component that doesn’t get the props it deserves.
For those who don’t know, the PvP element in Destiny 2 acts as additional content, specially during dry spells between content drops. That’s not to say it’s not good, because some of the changes they added, especially with the new Gambit mode were really well received by the community.
So when rumors started spreading about Bungie looking to drop PvP entirely in the next iteration of Destiny, fans were understandably not happy. This was also coming after long periods of silence about the future of PvP and what was coming next in Destiny 2. Bungie was asked some pretty pointed questions on social media, and eventually decided to clear the air.
In a recent Twitch Stream, speaking about the future of the game, they said:
“There are members of the development team who come in to Bungie every day to work on Destiny, and they’re hard at work, upstairs right now on future evolution for the Crucible.”
This comes as a huge relief for the playerbase. The game still has almost a 50/50 split between PVP and PVE. PVP still has about 500-550k players daily, where PVE has about 600k.
