Destiny has been out for nearly two years now, and you would think that by now, the shared world shooter would have had matchmaking for its Raids. It still doesn’t, even with the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion, but don’t think that Bungie hasn’t been thinking about it. According to World Design lead Steve Cotton in an interview with Metro, they’ve been “thinking about it a lot.” Cotton also spoke about other things, such as sword combat and the possibility of a Vex adventure.
Back in 2014, when first asked about it, Bungie said that it was something that they “absolutely wanted to do,” but they had no plans for it at the time. In general, the studio is certainly listening to fan feedback, it’s just that they’re going by priority for the things they want to do. They’re more focused on giving players new experiences, hence the private matches.
Rise of Iron will be bringing plenty of new stuff with it when it releases, but it also may not be the final adventure for the first Destiny game. When asked if the Vex would get an expansion of their own to follow in the footsteps of the Fallen and the Hive, Cotton was somewhat cryptic. He couldn’t talk about that in full, but he did dance around it, saying that it was a “good question. I can’t answer it but it’s a really good one.”
Destiny: Rise of Iron comes to the PS4 and Xbox One on Sept. 20.
