Weekly Update 11.26.14

The full article can be found at Bungie.net

From time to time, we become consumed by holidays that aren’t necessarily universal to our global community of ballistic ninjas. Thanksgiving is one of them. Whether or not you’re taking some time off work to gather with family and friends to redeem a bounty on an enormous bird, the themes of this occasion are relevant to us all.

The fables of Thanksgiving contain similarities to the Destiny community, even if you have no plans to devour a feathered consumable. This weekend, we celebrate the arrival of weary travelers in a new world. We’ll express gratitude for surviving a harrowing journey. Looking to the future, we’ll toast our good fortune on a beachhead that we can build upon for generations to come.

As glasses are raised and winged things are carved, there will be a lot for which we can be thankful at Bungie:

We’re thankful for the millions of people who have played our game.

We’re thankful that you care enough about what happens in that brave new world to talk to us about it.

We’re thankful for the chance to expand on our shared adventure in the days to come.

We’re thankful for ascendant shards, exotic weapons, good friends, and covering fire in times of severe danger.

We’re thankful for everything that happened this year: the launches, world-firsts, the hard learnings, the updates, the forum chatter, and the moment when we gleefully surrendered complete and total control of our game to its rightful owners.

We’re thankful that we can take a day or two off and see the people we missed while we were wrestling this new creation the ground, bundling it for mass consumption, and launching it out of a cannon.

Most of all, we’re thankful for you. Thanks for playing.

    • Raxs

  • Mojo

    This is the weekly update? Screw you bungie!

    • Raxs

      Yup, this seems pretty rational…

    • Lee Juriet

      I agree, lacking in Content… And you Americans. We Canadians already had out Thanksgiving!

    • Niklas bomber

      how bout you stop complaining, if you have a problem go make your own game, do you know how hard bungie has to work to keep the game on its legs, so stop looking at the bad and be thankful for what you have.

  • Octus

    I’m thankful that bungie made this game. I’ve had a lot of fun playing it since launch. Especially the moon!

  • Lee Juriet

    Lol, I’d love to see those Shanks ingame!

  • Zendoh

    A pretty lackluster update… i expected the exotic weapons buff/nerfs. Bungie should prioritize the people playing the game, not potencial customers :/
