Speculation regarding Bungie’s new highly-anticipated Activision published franchise has kicked into overdrive this morning, with Kotaku reporting that a former Bungie contractor has blown the lid on the developer’s first post-Halo multiplatform game.
Codenamed “Tiger” – and with the tentative title of “Destiny” – the shooter is described as “World of Warcraft in space”, with strong MMO features, built on a new, proprietary engine, and having “unique online connectivity and matchmaking technology.”
With Activision axing Guitar Hero and games that are deemed not up to scratch, it’s no surprise to learn of a potential marriage between two of the publisher’s strongest performing divisions. After all, imagine the combined commercial power of a Call of Duty type game infused with World of Warcraft-esque scope? Now imagine it developed by Bungie.
