A couple of years ago, fans of the Halo
franchise were crushed to find out that their favorite first-person shooter probably wasn't going to make the leap to MMO space
. However, the company behind the Halo
phenomenon has been diligently at work on another highly speculated-about project -- and it looks as though this project could go a long way to giving the fans what they want.
According to Kotaku
has been developing a massively multiplayer first-person shooter named Destiny
. Previously code-named "Tiger," Destiny
is described by Kotaku's unnamed source as being "World of Warcraft
in space" and will run on all-new technology developed by the studio, including unique online connectivity and matchmaking software.
Bungie is currently in a 10-year publishing agreement with Activision Blizzard
, so presumably Destiny
will be published by the company. Last year, Blizzard's Rob Pardo applauded the idea of a Bungie MMO
, although he refused to comment on a collaboration between the two studios.
