Bungie’s Destiny Revealed
Far be it from me to say that Bungie’s literal destiny has been revealed, far from it, but court papers from Activision’s big-name court case have revealed exactly what the Halo creators are up to behind closed doors.
It has been revealed that Bungie are working on a four-game series entitled Destiny (a sci-fi fantasy first person shooter), with releases scheduled for the holiday seasons of 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 – so that’s a lot of Bungie content to look forward to then.
But it doesn’t end there; the developer has promised to release four downloadable expansions – called Comet – which will be dropping in 2014, 2016, 2018 and (you guessed it) 2020.
Gamers can expect the first Destiny game to hit the Xbox 360 in the autumn of 2013 and the contract between Bungie and Activision has revealed that this title will also be making its way to Microsoft’s next console (referred to in the contract as the “Xbox 720″).
The game will also be coming to the PlayStation 3 almost exactly a year later, which gives Microsoft time to boast their timed exclusive, but only after a “joint technical feasibility analysis” that will determine whether the game “is able to be developed for the PS3 at quality and feature parity to the Xbox 360 version.”
Details about the Comet releases were also revealed, stating that they will be available for the Xbox 360, Xbox 720, PlayStation 4 and PC.
However, don’t get to attached to the Destiny name. These games haven’t been officially announced as of yet; that title is tentative at the moment and is probably being used as a code name more than anything.
So, that’s a hell of a lot of information about Bungie that’s sure to keep their army of fans happy. Will they top Halo? You decide.
