Bungie Sets Destiny Reveal Date For Next Week
Written By
View author's profile

Last week, Bungie promised the big reveal for its first post-Halo project with Activision, namely Destiny to surface "within weeks", before that was pared down to mere days. Now, the developer has pinned a proper date on Destiny finally breaking cover on the game's Facebook page, where it exuberantly declares that "news is coming soon!"

"Official Destiny news is coming soon!" the Destiny Facebook page exclaims. "You can be the first to see the reveal of Destiny right here on February 17."

Meanwhile, over on, there's information pertaining to the Destiny social media channels, which are now live, as are the official forums. "In a matter of days, we're going to give you your first glimpse into the vision and ambition that's driving the creation of our brave new world," reads a statement on Bungie's site.

"To make room for the resulting chatter, we've launched some official social media channels. There’s a new Destiny page to like on Facebook, a new Destiny feed to follow on Twitter, and a new Destiny page on Google+. And, of course, we've opened a new Destiny forum..."

Be sure to mark February 17th in your diary then. You've got a date with Destiny. You can check out more Destiny artwork and info here.

And thus begins the downfall of what looks to be a great new idea. Will they follow in the same steps as Halo? Hmm, probably, it IS Bungie after all...

I'm just excited for a new AAA game! I'm tired of titles every year that are just the next in a series. Finally something 100% new from a Developer we know we can trust!

based on some of the screenshots, looks like there is more a Star Wars influence. Which is always a good thing

Loyal Bungie member for longer than I can remember now. Hyped for this, despite some dislike for Activision.

Only Bungie can get me this hyped for a game. (Rockstar and Bioware are the only other two devs that come close)

Activision... They will undoubtedly try to run any creative thinking or original ideas into the ground. They cant help it, It's just in their nature.
That's why its hard to get excited about this.

I love Bungie (for Halo) as much as the next person, however i am being rational about their new game, people seem to forget that Bungie are still pretty much a one hit wonder studio.

They had success with Myth and Marathon before Halo but they were niche games and not AAA blockbusters, Halo propelled them into the big time but that is only one franchise, now they need to repeat it.

I will remain rational and not listen to the hype (we know nothing about the game so why the hype?), because this game could end up being really rubbish

@13 Concept art not a screenshot, in other words the in-game graphics will not be that good looking (at least not on the 360/PS3)

always liked bungie thought they did a great job on the halo series and am confident they will do the same here. cant wait for the reveal. also off topic really cant wait for the next gen consoles reveal as tbh this gen of consoles are starting to show their age and have given all they can give visually anyway.

If it's an MMO I'm happy for fans of the genre, but personally I hope it's not. I'd rather just a great single player story driven game.

@12 Don't need to worry about Activision running it into the ground as, even though they are publishing it, Bungie holds every creative right over it and Acti get no input or say in it's development what-so-ever. It's in their contract as stated by Bungie themselves.

@14 you can say that to just about every studio. Naughty Dog and Bethesda are the only two that come to mind that have multiple hits

So much negativity on this site now...

I miss the days where I could look forward to a game with fellow gamers who were optimistic instead of trying to immediately shoot down every idea that sounds good before almost any info is released on it...

Title name is good. I look forward how game turn out to be. But Activision publishing it well hard to tell if this game would sales well or not but if not sales well then Bungie might closed down. Oh gosh hope not since Bungie is good developers well who know in near future. I think Destiny will sales well since Bungie name and everyone knew this game developers came from Halo. But maybe this not affect on outside gamers so artwork boxset might not pleased or think Destiny is not Halo like. We have wait and see how reasons for sales going by later this year.

Last thing I hope Activision not fucked Bungie up. :P

As someone previously stated, Bungie owns everything with this Destiny game. Activision only publishes their game. Bungie said they did that so they could keep their IP. They even said they should have done that with Halo.
