Vault space, or the lack thereof, has been an ongoing concern for the Destiny 2 community. However, despite fan demand for more vault space in Destiny 2, Bungie has been reluctant to give fans more space to store their favorite weapons and gear. Bungie is aware of fan concerns, though, and apparently has some solutions in the works.
Christopher Barrett, game director at Bungie, took to Twitter to address ongoing fan complaints about Destiny 2. First he acknowledged the criticism aimed at the game’s Eververse marketplace before turning his attention to the vault space issue. “We have short term and long term solutions for Vault space in the works, since I know that is another hot topic,” he said.
Barrett’s statement lets fans know that Bungie is apparently working on “short and long term solutions” for Destiny 2‘s vault space problem, but is light on substance. Barrett offers no concrete details as to how or when Bungie will fix Destiny 2‘s vault space problem, let alone how the company plans on addressing more pressing matters, like the increasingly controversial Eververse.
So while Barrett’s statement may be designed to alleviate some fan concerns about Destiny 2, the lack of details may just make some Guardians more frustrated. After all, many people have dedicated dozens of hours of their life to Destiny 2, and may feel betrayed by some of the decisions Bungie has made with the game since launch.
What’s worse is that Bungie has been aware of fan demand for more vault space in Destiny 2 for quite some time. About a month ago, Bungie acknowledged the desire for more vault space, but also said that the Curse of Osiris DLC wouldn’t add more vault space to the game. It’s odd that Bungie knows exactly what Destiny 2 fans want when it comes to vault space, but refuses to increase it, not even for customers that shelled out the extra cash for the game’s Curse of Osiris DLC. Instead it just dances around the issue, promising vague “short term and long term solutions” that could be something other than simply increasing vault space.
Ultimately, Bungie is in a position where it will want to start making big changes to please its fans. It has consistently made decisions to anger the Destiny 2 community, dating back to when it added single use cosmetic shaders, and it’s not unreasonable to think fans will find another shooter to spend their time with if things don’t change soon.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
