There are often games of a similar nature that are compared by fans in the hope that they can help to improve one another. This is a common case with a big release coming out, and in this instance, there’s a debate among fans on how Destiny 2 could learn a lot from Titanfall 2.
To some, this may seem like a strange comparison, particularly in the actual game concept. Titanfall 2 was subject to a bit of bad press upon release, with sales falling far short of expectations. In Titanfall 2’s defense, it released right in between the two biggest shooter titles of that year, launching between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
What Titanfall 2 did do well was change a lot of features that were present in the first game, which wasn’t to some fans’ liking. However, there’s no doubt that it was indeed a very good game, and was a remarkable improvement on the original Titanfall title. So the comparison to Destiny isn’t based on the concept of each game, but in how they were executed.
Destiny came under scrutiny over the course of it’s lifespan, going from the time of launch to present day in the build up to the highly anticipated sequel. Said scrutiny has left many skeptical as to what to expect from Destiny 2, so hopefully it will be a case of the first Destiny game being a platform for Bungie to discover exactly what Destiny is, and make a massive statement when Destiny 2 releases by having a far superior product. Sure, we expect a sequel to make improvements on the last game anyway, but if it can do it on the scale that Titanfall did with it’s respective sequel, then Destiny 2 could be something special.
