Even though a small tidbit of details regarding Bungie’s upcoming project titled Destiny leaked way back in August, the studio has kept near total radio silence since. So far, all we know is that the game will feature a huge world divided into zones, a campaign that can be played entirely with co-op buddies, plenty of customization options, and even a few aliens to shoot. Fortunately, that radio silence is about to be broken.
The post claims that, “in a matter of days, we’re going to give you your first glimpse into the vision and ambition that’s driving the creation of our brave new world. To make room for the resulting chatter, we’ve launched some official social media channels. There’s a new Destiny page to like on Facebook, a new Destiny feed to follow on Twitter, and a new Destiny page on Google+. And, of course, we’ve opened a new Destiny forum here on Bungie.net where you can discuss upcoming news.
Bungie.net and our existing Bungie social channels will remain official sources for news about Destiny, Bungie, and anything else that might tickle our fancy. If you’ve already registered on our forums, liked our Facebook page, and been treating yourself to our sweet Tweets, you’re ready for anything.”
All eyes are on Bungie to see what they’ve been cooking up post-Halo. Gamers and industry insiders alike will obviously be holding the new project up with great expectations following the revolutionary FPS known as Halo: Combat Evolved. I’m interested to see if they make a radical departure from the sci-fi shooting genre and maybe introduce a more Action-RPG oriented game that puts an emphasis on exploration. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough.
Are you guys interested in whatever Destiny turns out to be? Would you like to see more running and gunning à la Halo or are you hoping Bungie makes a fresh start and goes an entirely different direction? Share your thoughts below.
