A variety of problems have plagued Destiny 2, but developer Bungie has revealed an upcoming update that will try to solve its biggest one.

It is unthinkable that there are problems surrounding Destiny 2, which claimed the title as best-selling game of 2017 one month after its release. However, Bungie has a big problem in its hands, and it needs to find a solution now.

Destiny 2: Its Biggest Challenge Yet

Despite the hype and success, Destiny 2 has nowhere been perfect. There was the hate symbol that somehow sneaked its way into one of the game's gauntlets and the ludicrous new shader system, among many others. Even the recent PC release of the futuristic shooter was no unscathed, with various launch issues and rampant wrongful bannings.

Destiny 2 and Bungie, however, are facing the biggest challenge yet for the nearly 2-month-old game. Since its launch, the Destiny 2 player base has declined significantly, falling from 3.5 million players to 1.5 million players.

The problem has been traced to the Destiny 2 endgame. While Bungie was able to create Destiny 2 to be friendly to newcomers, more hardcore players, especially those who transferred from the original Destiny, simply found the sequel to be too easy. There has also been no suitable reward for continuing to grind in the endgame.

Apparently, Bungie didn't realize just how quick seasoned Destiny players will get to the Destiny 2 endgame, which is currently poorly fleshed out. This has made players lose interest in Destiny 2 shortly after reaching max levels and the endgame.

Destiny 2 Endgame Updates Coming Soon

In an official Bungie blog post that also previewed Patch 1.0.6 for the game, game director Christopher Barrett revealed what the developer is working on to improve the Destiny 2 endgame.

Among the planned changes include "new systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits," "better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities," and "better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors." The rest of the list includes more things that, on paper, will make playing Destiny 2 more appealing to players who have reached the endgame.

Will the Destiny 2 endgame updates bring players back? That remains to be seen, particularly because the announced changes remain very vague. In addition, with no timeline mentioned, there is no reason for Destiny 2 players to keep grinding now.

The Destiny 2 endgame updates may be a good sign for things to come. However, for the franchise's fans, the changes may be too late once they arrive.
