If secrets were an ocean, the internet would be an especially leaky boat.
By accident (or design) early images of Bungie’s ultra top secret, post-“Halo” game, codenamed ‘Destiny’ by those in the know, have leaked online and prompted the presumably sanguine developer to post their own preview image by way of response. And as that blog post I’ve just linked to suggests, further updates will be coming soon, suggesting that fans of the “Halo” creators action oeuvre might yet get an early Christmas gift to speculate wildly about.
As you can see, the image above suggests that Bungie haven’t gone nuts and come up with a cute IOS casual title – we’re still firmly in the realms of big sci-fi chaps with guns and esoteric hardware, whatever else the game might be about. Rumours suggest that this universe features a future, space-faring Earth society beaten back to their home planet by a hostile Alien presence in the universe only to be defended by a mysterious alien ship which hovers above our humble blue-and-green marble world.
One to add to my ludicrous pile of shame once it appears in 2013 or 2014, wouldn’t you agree?
