Destiny 2 had, let's just say, a rocky launch. By trying to turn Destiny into a more accessible box product, they lost much of the trust they'd built with the game's most-engaged players. Four years later, Bungie has turned things around. Find out how at GDC 2022!
"From Box Products to Live Service: How Destiny 2 Transformed Bungie" is a highly anticipated session happening at the Game Developers Conference next March. During this session on Friday, March 25 from 10:00 to 11:00am PT, general manager Justin Truman will dive into how Bungie rethought and implemented almost every aspect of their live business—exploring the changes and learnings needed to convert a studio used to building traditional AAA box products into a more authentic, modern live service organization.
This talk is perfect for folks working on a live service game, as well as anyone interested in doing so in the future. Justin will take an interdisciplinary approach to discuss the process, mindset, and cultural changes needed for Bungie to transform and grow for their game and audience.
Join us at the Game Developers Conference to see how Destiny 2 transformed Bungie, and how their lessons can inform your company or studio. Register for GDC 2022 today!
