It's been quite some time since Destiny 2 received much positive press. The game's been getting hammered by both the media and its community for weeks, if not months now, and it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon unless developer Bungie takes drastic action.
Over the holidays, Destiny 2 players started a campaign on the official forums, and rather impressively, that campaign is still going strong. Basically, the official forums are currently swamped in demands to remove the Eververse, an in-game store that primarily deals in microtransactions.
The Eververse has been at the heart of the controversy that's surrounded Destiny 2 since the title launched in September last year. Following the release of the game's lacking first expansion, Curse of Osiris, criticism has snowballed, and we're now at a point where it feels like something has to be done if Destiny 2 is ever going to repair its currently tattered reputation.
We've seen user campaigns similar to this have an impact before, but how far are Bungie, and indeed publisher Activision, willing to go to stop this from potentially escalating further? Only time will tell.
Are you still playing Destiny 2? How do you feel about the Eververse? Keep that wallet closed in the comments section below.
