Bungie, those dastardly minds behind the first Halo trilogy, have released a new video in their Bungie Community Theatre series that teases some imminent news about their next project, Destiny. Dubbed “Act Two,” the video suggests that we will be hearing more about the upcoming sci-fi/fantasy FPS in the coming weeks, most likely during Bungie’s panel at the Game Developers Conference. The video is made even funnier if you read the ridiculous credit sequence, which also includes a link to the outtakes.
Meanwhile, Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, discussed the company’s upcoming portfolio of games during their recent quarterly financial report. Destiny is a major piece of that portfolio and, reading between the lines, Hirshberg (via Destructoid) suggests that Destiny may not be due until 2014 (it was tentatively set for a Fall 2013 debut):
“It will also be a year of significant continued investment in several new properties with long-term potential that are not factored into our 2013 financial outlook, including Activision Publishing’s new Bungie universe, Call of Duty Online for China and the new Blizzard MMO.”
Whatever happens, it seems we will have an official look at the game sometime in March.
