Activision forces the hand of one of gaming's biggest developers a little sooner than expected!
Thanks to an inevitable leaked contract from Activision, Bungie have been forced into action in terms of the promo campaign for their new project Destiny. Announced late last year, the game has been shrouded in speculation ever since, with many journos wondering if this was to be an MMORPG along the lines of World Of Warcraft or Starcraft. It turns out they may not have been one- the contract listed a four-game start for this new franchise, with the initial opener being released exclusively for Xbox 360 and then the latter titles hopefully retailing for PlayStation 3 and PC too, and the MMORPG genre's influence certainly wasn't shied away from either. Bungie later responded to the leak with the following statement: "Well, that just happened. So, yeah. While we're not ready to show you what we've been working on, we can reconfirm that we're hard at work on our new universe. We can't wait for you to see it." Apparently, then, this legendary games developer is keeping quiet on its new series for now, but you can bet your bottom dollar that once Black Ops II ships and in the build-up to next year's E3 expo, Activision will be promoting the first game as much as humanly possible! Destiny ships for Xbox 360 in Autumn 2013.
