Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem.
We’ve been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they’re going to acquiesce, but they don’t, at least not fully, and then in a year’s time we get a better version of the game. With Curse of Osiris, the first expansion just a few short months into Destiny 2‘s lifespan, Bungie really didn’t have enough time to fix many of its major post-game problems.
In other words, it’s worth skipping until all of those nice quality of life updates actually come.
