Bungie’s top secret new game, a sci-fantasy, action shooter codenamed Destiny is heading to Xbox 360 & Xbox 720, (or Xbox 8 yet unannounced) in the fall of 2013 – according to court documents that outline the studio’s ten-year contract with Activision.
As part of the lawsuit between Activision and Infinity Ward’s ex founders, Jason West and Vince Zampella – documents outline a four game plan with the first release on next-gen Xbox consoles in Fall 2013 and PS4 in 2014. Further games in the franchise will be released in 2015, 2017 and 2019 respectively, and additionally inbetween those releases will be downloadable expansion packs codenamed “Comet”, starting in fall 2014, then continuing in 2016, 2018, and 2020. So assuming it’s a massive hit with gamers, Destiny is on course to be one MASSIVE franchise.
Microsoft hasn’t officially announced the next-gen Xbox console and although they have denied an E3 2012 reveal, with Bungie planning their next game as a launch title for the console you can be sure if it’s not shown as E3 2012. We’re definitely getting something next year instead…
