Twitter Buzz: Gamers React DESTINY 2 Character Reset News

Yesterday, Bungie confirmed that only your Guardian's likeness will carry over to Destiny 2 as all your weapons, armors, emotes and other misc. items will be left behind. Needless to say, many were not happy.

In case you missed it, yesterday, Bungie confirmed that longtime Destiny players will lose their gear as they transition to the sequel. That's right, say bye bye to Gjallarhorn (more likely, you'll have to earn Gjallarhorn all over again).  For longtime Destiny players with hunders of hours invested in acquiring a particular weapon or armor, this certainly feels like a slap in the face - especially after previous assurances that gear would transfer over.  As you can expect, gamer reaction was mixed at best as a surprisingly large contigent acknowledging that the move was necessary to take Destiny to greater heights.  Below, you can check out some of the funniest, bitter and bluntest repsonses to the news.  

If you've been playing Destiny for a while, where do you stand on the decision by Bungie.  Let us know your opinion in the comment section and add your voice to the discussion.

Destiny is a 2014 online, sci-fi FPS from Bungie and Activison.  Destiny marked Bungie's second franchise launch after Halo and would be the first release in a 10-Year publishing agreement with Activision.  Activities are divided between PvE, story missions and PvP arena battles.Since its launch, there have been four major expansions and numerous special and holiday-themed events. 

Development on the project began back in 2010 under the codename "Project Tiger", right after the release of Halo: Reach.   A lawsuit from a former Bungie employee revealed that Bungie would release 4 Destiny games over the course of a 10-Year contract with Activision and that Activision would invest $500 million in the game's development.  Bungie would also receive  a $2.5 million bonus if the game received a metractic score of 90 or better (the game debuted to a score of 76).

In mid-2013, with most of the core Destiny elements completed, Bungie upper management felt the game was too rigid and wanted a more open-world feel.  As such, the game's story was 100% rewritten and gameplay was restructured to fit a new narrative, while still using already completed cut-scenes and mission progression.  Many of the cut elements would be repackaged and introduced in subsequent expansion packs.

As late as December 2014, Bungie confirmed that player progression and loot would carry over to the sequel but an update on March 3, 2017 revealed that only player likeness would be transported over to Destiny 2.
