‘We took the criticisms of Destiny to heart…’

A documentary going behind the scenes at the Bungie studios, shot during the making of space opera Destiny 2, is to be screened by the BBC Saturday October 21.

The feature, titled “Making Destiny 2 and beyond” was shot at Bungie’s Seattle office, as the BBC interviewed company co-founder Jason Jones. Jones seems quite candid about his thoughts on the original Destiny and the fan reaction to it, stating that the community “expected better” from the title.

The documentary will look at many aspects of Destiny 2‘s development, from control, to narrative, to music, and speak with some of Bungie’s 700 strong staff about lessons learned, decisions made going into the sci-fi sequel, and even desires and dreams for the company’s future.

“Every time you do a new thing to surprise and delight people you risk being ignored,” continues Jones. “So you could make your hand very tired writing down all the risks going into a new game project, but unless you’re taking risks then you’re not going to do something people care about.”

“Making Destiny 2 and beyond” can be watched tomorrow on BBC Click. There is currently no specific time listing for the broadcast.
