Destiny 2 open beta
Destiny’s Sword is unlike any other MMO with its emphasis on robust, well-known features in addition to social gameplay and management of character’s psychology and mental health.

“Overall, the accounting demonstrates that the Group is diligently spending the money we are collecting from our backers and customers on the game development and publishing, as set out from the beginning,” says CIG’s CFO. “There is not a direct annual correlation of our spend to our net income. A buffer arose in the early years as we wrestled with the scope of what our customers wanted, and whilst we accelerated early deliveries through third-party contracting, we were cautious with our growth and expenditure until we could better define what was needed.
