Ever since it was first announced, Bungie has been clear on its intentions to make story a focus in Destiny 2.

One of the main complaints about the original game was that it was light on story and the main campaign felt somewhat purposeless. Taking those impressions into account has been a priority at Bungie, and now we know just how serious they are.

Twitter user and Bungie superfan "BungieInformer" attended a Destiny 2 panel at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, which featured Destiny 2 director Luke Smith, Commander Zavala voice actor Lance Reddick, and more. He posted a lot of information on what was said at the panel on Twitter.

In the panel, Smith and other Bungie developers spoke about the game, but one of the most exciting and important tidbits to come out of the event was the comment that Destiny 2 will launch with over 50 cutscenes.

To compare, the vanilla version of the original Destiny launched with just 17 cutscenes.

The "Homecoming" opening story mission that is available to play in the Destiny 2 beta already features no less than four cutscenes, which puts the game on an easy pace to have more storyline, dialogue, character interaction, and exposition than the original game had.

To further compare, the complete Destiny experience, including all expansions, had 63 cutscenes in total. If Bungie can deliver on their promise, a lot of fans will be happy with the amount of story in Destiny 2.
