The creative director of Bungie shooter Destiny has apologised for a recent interview about exclusive content in an upcoming Destiny SKU.
Luke Smith was earlier this week grilled by Eurogamer about the fact that certain content will only be available to those who buy the 74.99 Collector’s Edition. His dismissive answers did not go down well with the fandom.
Anyone who knows me knows I can be sarcastic, anyone who remembers podcasts I’ve done knows that I can be pretty blunt, and anyone who’s watched me in a ViDoc knows I’m pretty unpolished,” he said. However, most of you don’t know me.
Reading my interview with Eurogamer and imagining it came from some random developer of a game I love – that random developer looks like an Asshat. But that Asshat was me – and those words rightfully anger you. I’m sorry.
My words made it sound as if Bungie doesn’t care about their most loyal fans. We do care. We are listening. And we will make it right.”
As a resultowners of the existing game are now able to purchase the digital content from the Collector’s Edition for $20, meaning they can acquire the content without purchasing the collectors editions and having to repurchase content they already own.
UPDATE: This story has previously said that the content in question came with the Legendary Edition. It in fact comes with the Collector’s Edition. This has been corrected.
