Activision and Bungie Reveals Destiny!

Destiny, Bungie’s new game that everyone and their mothers have been talking about, has finally been “officially” announced!

Destiny is a first person action game that will feature a persistent, dynamic online world. Gamers will be able to explore this world with others, visit social spaces to swap stories, and more. Sounds like a first person MMO or a Burnout Paradise shooter…


“Bungie defined first-person action games over a decade ago with  Halo, and with  Destiny they will evolve the genre once again,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Destiny is a world that evolves. It is a world with wide boundaries that allows you to roam and explore. It is a world where, even in story mode, you could encounter other players on their own adventures. And of course, it is a world that brings all of this together with the visceral, heart pounding immediacy of an expertly crafted first-person action title. We are very excited to bring this ambitious, innovative and creative game to players around the world.”

Set in the distant future, gamers take on the role of Guardians of the last city on Earth. They must defend humanity against an imposing threat that seeks to wipe them from the face of the planet. This story is told via grand tales (not sure if that means episodic content or not). There will also be co-op, competitive, public, and social activities that are all seamlessly connected.


“Destiny is the game that we’ve been dreaming of building for years. We couldn’t be more pleased about our extraordinary collaboration with Activision. We finally have the right partner, team and technology to bring the experience to millions of players worldwide,” saidHarold Ryan, Bungie president. “Destiny will draw players into a world filled with mystery, action, and adventure, but most importantly, Destiny is more than a disc in a drive, it is a living social universe filled with other players.”


Though Destiny is scheduled to be released on the Xbox 360 and PS3, there is no word on a 2013 launch date. It’s possible that it will also be a launch title for the next gen consoles as well. Either way, be sure to check back with us as we continue to cover this title!
