Destiny 2 Is Not Performing To Activision's Expectations

Destiny 2 had a lot of hype surrounding it, but also had a difficult dilemma: bringing in new players while also retaining its dedicated fanbase. Desinty 2's Forsaken was a reinvention of sorts meant to help with the latter. We thought it was a pretty good start and fans seemed to agree, but Activision's earnings call today revealed that it wasn't exactly the saving grace it was hoping for the series. 

On the earnings call, Activision addressed this by saying that some of its franchises, Destiny, in particular, aren't performing as well as it hoped.  The company promised investors new monetization options alongside a faster content model to rectify this. How this will affect the game remains to be seen, as it's clear Activision needs to make some changes to please investors.

This isn't shocking news considering Activision is currently giving PC gamers a chance to own the game for free and has provided gamers more incentives to try it with promotions such as making it a free PlayStation Plus game. Hopefully, Bungie will stick to listening to fan feedback before making any big decisions.

Dr. Wu Stars In Upcoming Jurassic World Evolution DLC

Today, Frontier Developments announced Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 20. In the DLC, you work alongside the morally flexible Dr. Wu – the gifted geneticist who spearheaded the creation of the dinosaurs that would become Jurassic World's star attractions. 

Secrets of Dr. Wu features previously unseen locations, dinosaurs, challenges, and a new story starring BD Wong as the good doctor. The expansion gives you access to two hidden research facilities that continue to make hybrid dinosaurs like the Stegoceratops, Ankylodocus, and Spinoraptor. The trailer reveals even more options for genetically combining dinosaurs which you will be able to put into your park. 

Jurassic World Evolution is a simulator in the vein of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but instead of roller coasters, you create and maintain dinosaurs. The player builds their very own Jurassic World by constructing attractions alongside containment and research facilities on Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago.
