It looks like Destiny developer Bungie could be working on an animated series based on the games, according to a new job listing.
The new job listing for Senior Producer - Linear Media at Bungie sees the developer looking to hire someone to “produce projects that extend the franchise into new categories including TV, films, books, comics and audio formats”. Additionally, the required skills include experience with “licensed products, and/or animation, scripted television development or current programming”.
There's also mentions of animatics, scripts, and drafts, as well as experience “adapting and extending IP to new mediums”, which when combined with the information above, appears to point towards and animated show. It's almost certainly Destiny-based as well, with some of the other required skills including a “strong understanding of Destiny and its world”.
It seems that Bungie is looking to get in on the booming video game adaptation market, which has seen the production of several successful Netflix animated shows, including Arcane: League of Legends and Castlevania, and big budget feature films, like Sonic the Hedgehog. We'll be keeping an eye out for an announcement in the next year or so.
