Dungeons now purchased separately. (Destiny)

The people who design the Dungeons most likely do not make 200/hr.

I'm talking billing rate, not salary. As in, what would it cost me to pay Bungie to develop a Dungeon for me. So that includes overhead (which I noted is probably quite high for video game development), health insurance, etc., distilled to an hourly rate. For reference, I have a PhD in Structural Engineering and 7 years of experience, and I bill at $150/hr, but make less than 1/3 of that. The construction industry is relatively mature compared to video game development and there's less upheaval, so I figure $200/hr makes sense for something highly specialized like designing and developing Raid/Dungeon encounters. Probably the initial designers and technical people bill out higher than that, the testers probably bill out lower so it'd average out.
