Leaked concept images and advertising material have opened the door on Bungie’s latest series – Destiny.
The studio that brought you Halo has been working on Destiny since going multi-platform and signing up with Activision.
The leaked document has some snippets of information about where the narrative might be heading:
“Our story begins seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System littered with the ruins of man’s Golden Age. A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it’s here for, but only that it’s our protector. Meanwhile, strange, alien monsters creep in from the edge of the universe, determined to take Earth and the Last City. We are young ‘knights’ tasked with defending the remains of humanity, discovering the source of these monsters and – eventually – overcoming it.”
Thanks to previous leaks we know that the game is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. But that the next generation Xbox and PlayStation have also been mentioned as certainties to get Destiny.
Destiny games will hit consoles in Fall of 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 with ‘Comet’ DLC to come in Fall of 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020. There is also mention of an Xbox exclusivity window in the document.
Below is some official concept art released by Bungie.
Also, thanks to Geoff Keighly, we now have a pretty good idea that Destiny will be getting a full reveal at the VGA’s on December 7th.
We’ll update this post should we hear more information regarding the project.
