The lights are on
Bungie admits that there is no secret to creating a brand new fictional universe from scratch. In order to create the world of Destiny, Bungie drew hundreds of pieces of concept art, argued about the team’s ideas in meetings, and scraped a lot of concepts and started over before they finally landed on a concept they loved. You can see examples of this concept art in the image gallery at the end of the story.
During an hour-long presentation at the Game Developers Conference, Bungie’s Joe Staten and Christopher Barrett talked about what the company went through to design Destiny’s sci-fi/fantasy setting. Here are a few of the fun facts and details the duo revealed.

This keeps getting cooler every time I see something new about it. I just hope it has vehicles and silly characters like the grunts were in the original Halo games that beg not to be shot or fled in terror. Levity with violence is always a winning combination.
I hope there is a thrid person view option for this game instead of forcing the gamer to do a first person view. The game sounds pretty good.
I absolutely can not wait for this. This game will probably be the reason i buy a next gen console so i can experience it in all of its HD greatness.
They do it the same way all other game studios do it.
So far I'm looking forward to this. We know Bungie can make great shooters, but with the world they built, the designs we've seen... This can truly become something great!
I just hope they'll consider making a PC version, as I'm horrible with FPS on console... xD
Interesting how this game took such a shift during development, but it makes sense for Bungie to go back to sci-fi given their history with the genre. I would like to see that space tiger art, it sounds glorious.
It is definitely looking pretty epic.
Titan looks so BA. Space Knight!
