Bungie is poised to reveal its brand new game, Destiny, on Sunday, February 17, the company announced. In a recent post on Bungie's blog, the studio confirmed their upcoming game will indeed be called Destiny and that fans will soon get a "first glimpse into the vision and ambition that's driving the creation of our brave new world."
To help spread the word of Destiny, Bungie will wage a full-scale social media blitz. 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+. Of course, to keep things simplified, you can always check back here for the latest updates.
Back in November, some leaked materials revealed that Destiny is designed "for your inner seven year old." It was described as "fun and accessible to all," with an aim to "create a universe as deep, tangible, and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise." In terms of gameplay, Destiny is thought to be "social at its core", offering a "world to explore with friends, both old and new."
Although being developed by Bungie, Destiny is actually an Activision-published game. Strangely enough, the game was left out of Activision's 2013 earnings plan, indicating Destiny might be a next-gen console launch. However, in the aforementioned leaked materials Destiny was shown alongside the Xbox 360 and PS3 logos.
Hopefully we'll learn a bit more about the game and Bungie/Activision's plan of release for Destiny come Sunday.
