An IGN reader has provided the site with a bundle of Destiny
art and story materials that it says were compiled by an ad agency. Destiny
is the long-rumored secret project
that will serve as Bungie's followup to the Halo
series. The art shows an Earth in a future "littered with the ruins of man's Golden Age," according to the materials, with a huge alien ship sitting above the planet. There are also shots of various soldiers and war vehicles, along with a more final logo similar to the one we've seen before
And now Bungie has added to the collection with its own official piece of concept art above. On the official Bungie blog
, the company vaguely confirms the leaks, saying, "Go ahead. Take a peek. It's alright. We weren't quite ready, but we will be soon, and we can't wait to finally show you what we've really been up to."
The leaked documents describe Destiny
as "fun and accessible to all," and say the property's goal is "to create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars
franchise." That leaked contract between Bungie and publisher Activision about the project suggests that this title will involve four games, as many DLC releases, and stretch across the next console generation, so it's possible that this art reveals the very first step in what might be a long journey forward.
