Bungie has confirmed that there will be no open betas for Destiny 2: The Final Shape. This is a departure from previous Bungie releases, which have typically had open betas to test server strength and promote each release.
Bungie has not given a specific reason for the decision to not have an open beta for The Final Shape, but they have said that they want to deliver a “vacuum-sealed experience” for its launch. This suggests that they want to keep everything about The Final Shape a secret until it is released, in order to create a sense of excitement and anticipation among fans.
The decision to not have an open beta is a risk, but it could also be a reward. If Bungie is able to deliver a polished and bug-free experience at launch, it will be a major win for them. However, if there are any problems with the game, it could be a major disappointment for fans.
Only time will tell whether Bungie’s decision to not have an open beta for The Final Shape was the right one. But one thing is for sure: it is a decision that is sure to generate a lot of discussion and debate among fans.
