Yesterday some unexpected fallout of the Activision vs. Jason West and Vince Zampella (the former heads of Infinity Ward) lawsuit came to light. Within the court documents were details about Bungie’s upcoming project for Activision, codenamed ‘Destiny’.
A previously sealed document was obtained by the Los Angeles Times and it held the outline of the contract Bungie signed with Activision back in 2010. Bungie will develop four “sci-fantasy, action shooter games,” code named “Destiny,” and they will be released every other year starting next fall. In addition, they will also put out four DLC packs, code named “Comet,” every other year beginning fall of 2014. The contract also states that the first of these games with be out for Xbox 360 (and possibly Microsoft’s successor to the 360) only, but the other three games will come out for whatever current Microsoft and Sony consoles are available, and possibly also come out for PC.
After the story broke, Bungie released this statement:
So, yeah. While we’re not ready to show you what we’ve been working on, we can reconfirm that we are hard at work on our new universe. We can’t wait for you to see it. See you
Hopefully we’ll be seeing more about this from Bungie soon – 2013 isn’t that far away. Possibly they’ll have something to tease us with at E3.
