Destiny 2 publisher has signed a marketing deal with Sony i.e. the game will be marketed as if it is exclusive to PlayStation 4, and it’s the best version to play. Furthermore, there will be few additional Destiny 2 content that will be timed exclusive to PS4 at least for One Year. Xbox Boss Phil Spencer has slammed Sony for having these type of Marketing Deals With Exclusive Content. Spencer stated that the trend (started by Sony) of holding back any content of the game for a specific platform is a not good for an industry. But it seems like Sony and Bungie are not going to stop even after receiving so much criticism.
Bungie Community Manager in a recent video interview promoted PlayStation 4 Pro version of Destiny 2 ahead of Xbox One X. DeeJ was asked about the resolution at which Destiny 2 will run at Xbox One X, and to this he replied that 4K resolution has been confirmed only for PlayStation 4 Pro, and they have not made any promises about Scorpio (Xbox One X) as of yet.
“We confirmed 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro, have not made any promises about Scorpio (Xbox One X) as of yet. It’s very recent development they just announced two days ago, so we are working behind the scene to see what it’s future holds for us and these are announcements that will make at some point in time.” (check video interview below)
There is no doubt that Destiny 2 on Xbox One X will be a 4K resolution, it’s just that Bungie can’t talk about it publically yet due to marketing deal between Sony and Activision. We have seen this scenario earlier as well. Bungie at the time of Destiny 2 reveal event announced that the game will run at 30FPS on PS4 Pro, and didn’t share any details about Project Scorpio port. Later on (after E3 2017 press conference), Bungie confirmed 30FPS for Destiny 2 on Xbox One X.
Is the insecurity of Sony getting bigger and bigger and hence there is this type of move i.e. limiting developer and publisher from talking about something like that about the game on another platform. Share your opinion with us in the comment section below.
