De­vel­oper Bungie Pub­lisher Ac­tivi­sion For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Re­lease Septem­ber 6


This was a quiet show for Bungie – in fair­ness it had al­ready had its E3, at Destiny 2’ s lav­ish un­veil­ing in Los An­ge­les in May. The open­ing cam­paign mis­sion we played for our story in E308 was on the show floor, but most of the real ac­tion was be­hind closed doors, with a few new bits of info drib­bling out from in­ter­views. Some of it was well-re­ceived – con­fir­ma­tion that the Ti­tan’s de­fen­sive Ward Of Dawn su­per will re­turn, for in­stance – while much of it wasn’t, with con­fir­ma­tion that el­e­ments such as Ranked PVP and pri­vate matches won’t be ready for launch putting cer­tain cor­ners of the Destiny com­mu­nity on edge. That, sadly, is what hap­pens when you don’t have a fresh batch of game­play footage to show. This was an oddly muted show­ing for one of our most an­tic­i­pated games of the year, but re­lax: we’ll have much more to tell you next month.
