PC is always problematic when it comes to game development, which is why over the years we’ve seen companies continuously employ contingencies such as Valve’s Anti-cheat or PunkBuster which sometimes have worked and sometimes haven’t. This is mainly due to the fact that PC allows far more functionality than a machine designed just for gaming such as a PS4 or Xbox One.
Bungie is indifferent to this opinion, stating that their upcoming title, Destiny 2 has a team dedicated to maintaining the integrity of Destiny 2.
This is something, definitely, we have a team of people who worry about this stuff,” project lead Mark Noseworthy said. “So, we care deeply about maintaining the integrity of the game, so we have some things planned, but I’m not going to go into any details on them. But we want the game to play great on every platform. On PC that means having a really good plan for how we attack cheating.”
It’s great to see that they are taking the issue very seriously, cheaters compromise both the experience for gamers and the company. Let’s just hope the tools are effective.
In other Destiny 2 news, Activision has a very strong standpoint on creating a steady flow of content for Destiny 2.
With Destiny 2, Activision will make sure that fan’s hunger for more content will definitely be saited. This time around High Moon Studios and Vicarious Visions (the team behind the recent Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy) will be working with Bungie to create more content. “That will allow us to keep an even more robust pipeline of content in the ecosystem.”
