IGN has been provided with leaked materials, by one of their readers, about Bungie’s next franchise; Destiny. Bungie confirmed to IGN that the materials were, “prepared by an advertising agency and represents an outside look at Destiny’s plot, key values and more.” According to IGN, and the document, “Our story begins seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System littered with the ruins of man’s Golden Age. A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it’s here for, but only that it’s our protector. Meanwhile, strange, alien monsters creep in from the edge of the universe, determined to take Earth and the Last City. We are young ‘knights’ tasked with defending the remains of humanity, discovering the source of these monsters and – eventually – overcoming it.”
From the article, it seems Destiny might not be as mature as Halo because IGN says, “Destiny is further described as ‘fun and accessible to all,’ aiming ‘to create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise.’” However, the concept art does not look like it compliments this comment.
Bungie also told IGN, “We’re not quite ready to take the wraps off our next universe, but in light of recent events we thought we’d give fans something a little more official over at Bungie.net. Feel free to drop by and say hello! There’s much more to come.”
Along with the document, IGN showed off some concept art from the game.
