What if the Content Vault isn’t about file space? (Destiny)

Came across this very interesting article by the decently involved, lore-smart Paul Tassi today. In it, he links to a video of someone who supposedly attended one of those Bungie/Content Creator meetings where he claims that Luke Smith straight up said it’s about tearing out the old, buggy Destiny content and rebuilding the game to be better.

He talks about an eight hour meeting with content creators that Luke Smith had last fall talking about both the content vault and a potential Destiny 3, and while this sounds like something he may not technically be able to talk about (better check that NDA), the info’s out there now.

Luke Smith explained to the group the idea that Destiny was full of so many bugs and so hard to develop for because it essentially needed to be rebuilt. And that the purpose of the content vault isn’t just about saving hard drive space, it’s that these planets and activities are being rotated out of the game in order to be “rebuilt” in a way that suggests a new process or new engine, in order to be returned to the game later in a “better” form.

One question Smith posed to the group was “well why do you actually want a Destiny 3?” and the group listed off a bunch of things like more RPG aspects and new, larger areas, and he said all that stuff would be possible if they just “refreshed” Destiny 2 in this planned way with content vault in and out rotation. And that’s why we have at least three more years of Destiny 2 ahead of us with three expansions already listed.

I haven’t watched the video yet, and won’t be able to for a few hours (so someone should do that...) but the idea is intriguing. Rebuild Destiny in place... starting with the Cosmodrome? If anything, I find it hard to believe. And, if it is true, I’d be pretty unhappy if that grand plan is only shared with Content Creators. Heck, that Content Creators supposedly know while fans like us are slowly leaving Destiny behind for good is... upsetting.

But if it’s true, wound that be interesting? I’d love a better Destiny! (I just doubt we’ll get one.)
