“Destiny” launched Tuesday for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. While players have been looking forward to Bungie’s action shooter for months, any new release is usually accompanied by some in-game changes and improvements. The title just became playable early Tuesday morning, but Bungie is already working on a number of improvements.

“Work is already underway on upcoming patches. Some will contain new content, some will contain the next round of improvements, and some will undoubtedly react to issues that you -- the playerbase -- will uncover in the coming weeks,” the “Destiny” development team said on its blog this week.

“With ‘Destiny,’ we couldn't create a world that players want to live in by leveraging our old habits. We want to improve, grow and evolve ‘Destiny’ in the coming weeks, months and -- hopefully -- years,” the studio continued. “Our goal is to constantly improve the Live game. The game we hope is competing for your free time.”
