Destiny 2 Game Director Joe Blackburn has revealed that the shared-world shooter’s Power Level system could potentially see “major changes” down the line, but admitted it’s a massive task.
Speaking with GamesRadar, Blackburn was asked if there’s any chance that the Power Level system may see any changes at some point, to which he replied, “I think yes is the answer with Power.” However, it’s not as easy as that, as making these tweaks would be a mammoth undertaking.
We would still like to make major changes to the Power system. We looked at crafting as a scary thing to add to Destiny, and Power is that times 10 There’s some good stuff that Power does for the game, and there’s some really bad stuff that Power is doing to Destiny right now.
I think what you’re gonna see us do is some experiments that are helping us understand if we’re making the right long-term plays for Power and helping us dial that in. If we’re gonna do this overhaul, can we have some good data before we get there?
Blackburn went on to say that players can expect some “weird experiments to be flying through in the year of Lightfall.”
By that, he’s referring to Destiny 2: Nightfall, which is the next major content drop for the shared-world shooter, arriving on February 28, 2023.
