It's abundantly clear at this point that BUNGiE plans to go absolutely nowhere with the story and keep it in filler hell longer than even Naruto could dream of accomplishing.
In four years the story has not made an ounce of signifigant progress, neither toward answers as to the actual nature of the conflict we have been pulled into, nor are we any closer to any kind of resolution. Not even the grimore helps. Oryx's backstory was a great story, and good worldbuilding, but at the end of the day all it's really done is give about a millon excuses for if they want to Dragonball Z Oryx back to life again.
There have been SOME indications that the Traveler is some kind of uncaring symbiotic that uses species simply to protect itself from The Darkness™ but that is also set up in a way where it will likely not end up panning out.
And now we come to Destiny 2. Filler was was excusable in the past since it was only expansions to the first game, but now not only are we sill not following up on anything the original base story set up, but we are actualy taking steps BACKWARD to justify even more damn filler revolving around the franchisees' most insignificant faction.
It feels bad, because there are enough elements in the game for me to enjoy it but at the same time I know i'm feeding into some of the most cynical and scummy business practices this side of Weyland fucking Yutani.
