In Sony’s main translation (found by VGC), Totoki exposed he consulted with Bungie management. He was frank in stating that from a service perspective, the designer needed to alter it how it runs.

Eventually, he desires “responsibility for advancement timelines,” and much better handling of overhead. Beyond that, he applauded Bungie personnel for its live-service understanding.

“Employees … were extremely inspired, revealing excellent imagination,” he stated. “I intend to continue the discussion and create some excellent options.”

Bungie is still attempting to form a much better future for itself

Totoki’s remarks have an additional edge to them now that we understand it was directed at a particular designer. It’s specifically pointed, provided what might wait for Bungie by the end of the year.

In December, it was reported Sony might liquify Bungie’s existing board and take total business control if particular requirements from the 2022 acquisition weren’t satisfied.

At the minute, everything depend upon how well Destiny 2: The Final Shape carries out in June. It was likewise what stimulated the designer’s layoffs this previous October.
