The Raid, called Vault of Glass, challenges a group of six people to take on the games toughest challenge so far. The decision to not include matchmaking was a controversial one, however the possibility of including it has been addressed in Bungie’s weekly update by community manager David Dague.
In response to an inquiry about it, he said: “That’s a really tricky topic.
“The Raid was designed for solid teams of killers who have made a commitment to solve a dense and explosive riddle. Most of the raiding parties who have emerged victorious from the Vault of Glass have sworn that one weak link would have doomed their chain.
“There have been other stories, of course. We’ve heard tell of Guardians who met each other just outside the door that leads into that vault. Strange tales have reached our ears – tales of total strangers who have banded together to see the Raid all the way through to a triumphant finale.
“Those stories surprise us, but the players of our games always have. The best I can do to answer your question is to let you know that you’ve been heard. We’re having conversations about how Matchmaking might support the more challenging activities in Destiny. It’s a start. Keep sounding off about it, and maybe someday some matchmade Fireteam mates will hear you, too.”
Also hinted in the update was the possibility of private matches in the games’ future. Dague said: I totally get it. I want (private matches introduced) too. I’ll keep bringing it up. In the meantime, I’ll have some dares and challenges to issue to the competitive community. Keep your sights trained on us.”
