Bungie hints at news reveal for Destiny

Destiny has been in the dark for quite some time now, yet a recent news post released by Bungie points to an influx of news via social media outlets over the next few days.

Bungie has been tight-lipped about its new mysterious game Destiny for quite some time, leaving a lot to the imagination concerning game mechanics and other features.

Destiny–originally known as project "Tiger"–marks Bungie's first title since it sold the Halo franchise and signed a ten year contract with Activision, and has since garnered a fairly high amount of anticipation, as gamers worldwide are curious to see the fruits of Bungie's labor.

In a recent news post Bungie hints that Destiny will finally get its fair share of time in the limelight:

"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. 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 here on Bungie.net where you can discuss upcoming news."

Bungie is famous for its unconventional game reveals, and as they put it, gamers who are subscribed to all of the pertinent social media networks focused on Destiny are ready for anything. What we know about Destiny so far hints that it may be a multi-platform next-gen release with a sci-fi story arc focused around a mysterious alien ship and a group of "knights" who stand sentinel as the last defense of humanity.

A report has also surfaced a few months back via IGN that says Destiny will be "fun and accessible", and that it would feature a "deep, tangible and relatable" world comparable to the Star Wars universe.

Further details concerning Destiny are planned to release in the next few days, and it is believed that an official reveal may be made on Feb. 17, 2013.
