The lights are on
While some details regarding Bungie's new franchise Destiny have already leaked, we'll soon know more about the highly anticipated project.
At the upcoming Game Developer's Conference, Bungie's design director Joe Staten and art director Christopher Barrett will give a lecture entitled "Brave New World: New Bungie IP" which will discuss the process of creating a brand new video game franchise.
Here's the description from the GDC site:
"Two decades of success in the gaming industry is no small feat, but after ten years of Halo, Bungie found themselves faced with a tremendous challenge: to build a whole new world, filled with even more amazing mysteries, places, creatures, and opportunities for player investment. For the first time ever, Bungie creative directors will discuss their world building techniques, from concept to production. Attendees will walk away with key insights into Bungie's battle-tested design process. They'll get a glimpse of the brave new world that has been built, a place where the next ten years of great Bungie adventures will unfold."
The Game Developer's Conference takes place on March 25-29 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. As of this writing, there is no specific time, date, or location given for the Bungie presentation.
The Destiny project is said to involve multiple games and will be published by Activision.

I hope it doesn't remind me of halo with gameplay, but easter eggs are welcomed
Perhaps my most anticipated game yet. I'm really excited to hear more about this game and where Bungie is heading. I love Bungie...
Bring back Marathon.
Very excited about this. I'm ready to migrate from Halo considering where that series is heading.
I just hope it has a little more going on than just a typical FPS.
As the poster said: Destiny awaits.
I hope this is as good as halo
Oh shiggity diggity! Can't wait to see what they have been working on!
