Wait, Destiny Was Delayed Due To Story Issues? Really?
Nobody plays Destiny for the story, do they? Well, did you realize that was the reason behind the game's original delay?
First, some background: Developer Bungie and publisher Activision have been embroiled in a lawsuit with Marty O'Donnell, who composed the soundtracks for the Halo games, and also produced a few songs for Destiny. He now claims he was "fired without cause" and forced to give up shares in the company. But something else has arisen from this battle, as found in submitted court documents (via VentureBeat).
As it turns out, Bungie made "substantial revisions" to the game's narrative just before the original projected release of September 2013. The game was then pushed back 7 months. Now, thing is, fans have been complaining about the Destiny story from the start, as the disjointed nature of the narrative led them to believe big pieces of the plot were missing. Don't forget that it was supposed to have quite the background in lore.
Currently, most of the game's backstory can only be found in the Grimoire Cards, which aren't even in the game (they're found on site online). It would appear that the 7-month delay didn't really do much to help...perhaps it hurt?
