I haven't played a lot of MMOs, but the one I have played, EVE Online (a sci-fi spaceship combat MMO) would add major new features like twice a year or something like that. Not just a new ship or a new mission, but they'd rebalance entire classes of ship at a time (with a class being something like "Battleships" or "Destroyers" which represented very roughly 1/10th of the ships in the game), they'd redo the interface and rules for triangulating deep space treasure troves, they'd significantly alter the combat rules or take a rule set like the rules for bounties that weren't working and completely redo them so they were. It wasn't like what we're used to with Halo where we got maybe one title update that at most slightly altered the weapon bloom or the way the game computed simultaneous melees.

If Bungie could alter Destiny like a real MMO I think we'd all be very pleased.
