Oh, so I assume Call of duty's years are over then? There's only so much money in the world.

I'm excited for Destiny, but the ego this company has is disgusting. Maybe when they announce 2*, 3*, 4* and Specters*.

resi _4_zombie Call of Duty's years are about as over as WoW's, which is to say they're not. The company is still supporting existing IPs and will continue doing so alongside new ones. But they understand that they do need something new.

Activision is one of the few big publishers right now not reporting year-on-year losses. All the hate people have for them aside, they know what they're doing, I have to admit.

And all THAT aside, I want Destiny to succeed, because I love Bungie. I have faith in the developer to produce something really great.

Spook He's in an investors call. Of course he has to sound confident. If Activision is going down the crapshoot, he'd still have to sound encouraging.

RabidChinaGirl To be honest, as long as they leave at least one decent Next-gen Call of Duty, I'll be happy. I do enjoy my Call of Duty (Black Ops), but they've really made themselves the Apple of the gaming industry.At least to me.

As long as we're not talking monthly subscriptions, I can work with Destiny.

resi_4_zombie I know Acti lets Blizzard work pretty independently. I'm sure they'll be the same with Bungie!

Then again, publisher still holds a lot of sway. Like EA deciding Titanfall would be Xbox (and PC) exclusive while Respawn wasn't cool with that.

Wait, there's no offline play? I thought there was offline and the online was to "expand" the gameplay. :/

I think Destiny will live up to this expectation and more. It's shaping up to be an incredibly crisp game, catering to many different playing styles, move over CoD.
