Let’s face it, we live in a technological world where just about anything can be hacked, or accidentally sent, or found out about if someone was to look hard enough. In the video game world, leaks are especially infamous, as they can reveal key moments of the plot, new characters to a roster of a fighting game, detail modes that were meant to be kept secret, etc. Now, it’s true that some players love leaks, but a majority want to have the surprise of seeing it unfold before their eyes. So, when a game doesn’t have major leaks, it’s newsworthy, like with Destiny 2.
Now sure, there HAVE been leaks for Destiny 2, but that was about the announcement for it, were new images were shown, and then the Mega Blocks spilled potential story details. But since then? Nothing. And remember, the game is coming out in September, and apparently people on staff have had the game for a few months, even if not in complete form. So, there’s a lot to leak. But it hasn’t, and fans are grateful. Especially on Reddit. Take for example SgtHondo:
“Whatever they’ve been doing, it has made the anticipation for the reveal stream/beta/etc. so much sweeter. For that, I thank you.”
This is what we meant by grateful, as they want to see Bungie themselves reveal Destiny 2, as it’s there game, they don’t want some leaker doing it and then we’ll be wondering if it’s real or not. Where’s the fun in that?
Plus, it also allows for some fun jokes to occur, such as, “What are the heads of Bungie doing to ensure no leaks happen from their employees?”
“All employees have been threatened with a titan punch if they talk,” jokes mrbrannagan.
Regardless, hopefully when new Destiny 2 information comes out, it’ll be on behalf of Bungie and no one else.
