Will Bungie Destroy Halo With Its New Game Destiny?

Bungie, the famed developers of the Halo franchise, is hard at work on their new game Destiny. GameVerb notes that Bungie is now competing against its very own creation Halo - more specifically 343 Industries' Reclaimer Trilogy (Halo 4-6). Knowing how successful Bungie has been in the past and the fact Destiny will be multi-platform and most likely next-gen, Destiny's sales numbers are likely to outpace upcoming Halo titles easily.

Combined with yearly Call of Duty releases and Respawn Entertainment's unannounced IP, could Halo survive being only a first-party title? And more importantly, are first-party titles going to struggle in the years to come? (Bungie, Destiny, Halo 4, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

No halo will be just fine...but I am interested in seeing what else bungie can offer since their going multiplat
joab777  +   653d ago
Is it multiplat? I remember reading that there were 3 games but that the first had to be xbox only, or maybe it comes out first on xbox andthen the next 2 are multiplat. Maybe not but it would be perfect strategy for xbox 720 launch title.

The new bungie games will be timed exclusive on X8.
EVILDEAD360  +   652d ago
Either way Bungies game will not destroy Halo, they will co-exist just like Respawn's new game will co-exist with COD.

I hope it quashes the Halo franchise. Halo 1 & 2 and Reach were really the only good Halo games. Halo 3 & 4 is a glossy rehash of 1, and Orbital Drop Ship Sleeper was filler to hold back the fans.
From images, Destiny looks good. Hopefully it will be.

Destiny 1 "WILL BE EXCLUSIVE TO XBOX 360", period.

Iteration 2 & 3 will be on 720 & PS4.
Don't know about PC, it could but I didnt read it.
Draco  +   652d ago
The first is a timed exclusive to the 360, the PS3 version has to launch in 2014. http://www.ps3trophies.org/...
StrongMan  +   653d ago
I'll wait for the PlayStation version.
IAMERROR  +   653d ago
you'd wait a 1,000 years if you had to. lulz
Muffins1223  +   653d ago
Oh god not this kid.......
FrigidDARKNESS  +   653d ago
The gaane will be released xbox 360 720 first and on other platforms a year later or none at all. If you go back to tje activision MS agreement MS has first right of refusal to release it on ps3 and ps4 .
Lvl_up_gamer  +   652d ago
That's right you will. Keep waiting while the rest of us are playing. :)
Septic  +   653d ago
This seems liek it'll be a different beast entirely to Halo.

I really hope it's Star Wars mixed with Halo and doesn't take itself too seriously. Just mates, exploring a unique world filled with jaw dropping locales.
KnightRobby  +   653d ago
If the manage to make it open world, that would be incredible. They've always been good with level design and the feeling of exploration. It would be absolutely amazing to see a Halo-Star Wars mixture in an open-world environment, with light RPG elements, coop, and competitive multiplayer.

Might be too ambitious, but when Activision compares it to the Call of Duty franchise out of the gate, it makes you wonder if they are pushing a huge budget on behalf of Bungie...

I can't wait to see it!
Septic  +   653d ago
That's exactly how I imagine it. An amazing open world with a FAT sphere looming overhead in the sky.
C4BL3  +   652d ago
looks like it is going to be Halo mixed with EMpire. open world, always on. It looks like it is going to include social media too. should be huge. Plus it's Bungie.
miyamoto  +   653d ago
Wow! Bungie destroying its own work?

That is interesting..... maybe no ... but Activision sure likes destroying competition....gangnam style!

BADAHBOOOOOM!

As long as half of it isnt backtracking.
whoyouwit04  +   653d ago
I seriously dout it.
phantomexe  +   653d ago
I don't know..... i get a feeling it's going be alittle like mass effect. What do you guys think?
Septic  +   652d ago
Yeah I think you're right. But I hope it's like a MMO with a massive open world with global events.

So imagine you're traversing a desert with your mates like in Star Wars and I dunno, a fat meteor just crashes on the horizon.

I remember jumping into WoW and being so intimidated by the massive world. Then, the random events that happened like a whole group of Alliance gnomes rushing this area called the Barrens. I was just standing on the end of a hill watching sheer carnage as the Horde on horseback clashed.

Moments like that just linger on with you and really enhance the believability of the world.
grassyknoll  +   653d ago
As it's an MMO, I assume not. Sure it will do well.
DigitalSmoke  +   653d ago
Halo players will buy anything with a green power ranger on the box.
BanBrother  +   653d ago
And that power ranger is in some of the highest rated games of all time, so your loss :-)

EDIT: I thought it was well known that this would be a 3rd party title. Thought everyone knew that already.

Just like Uncharted players will buy the shirt un-tucked Indian jones /Croft explore.
cervantes99  +   652d ago
To be fair to Xbox only players, what else are they going to buy? It's not like Microsoft actually cares about hardcore gamers anymore.

I say this from a once proud Xbox fan - alas no more.
mcstorm  +   653d ago
I don't think they will be able to Destroy Halo for 2 reasons Halo is now a massive name and 2 353 look like they are going to do a better job than Bungie managed to as to me they lost there way a bit after Halo 3. The 2nd is MS will always put more money into the 343 Halo games as this is there Mario or GT of the Xbox.

That is not to say there new game will not be a good game and I am looking forward to seeing what they offer us with there new IP.
Perjoss  +   653d ago
343
mcstorm  +   653d ago
I know I put 343 in the 2nd time the 1st time was a typo. And its 343i to be exact. :p

You are correct, thank you for correcting me on the mistake I made in my flawed correction.
mcstorm  +   652d ago
Haha no problem.
r21  +   653d ago
What is with people wanting a Halo killer? Geez.
hazardman  +   652d ago
yeah
Halo is still waiting!!
tigertron  +   653d ago
Why would it destroy Halo? it probably won't even be competing against it.
Jek_Porkins  +   653d ago
No, Halo is entirely its own thing. Nothing can kill off Halo aside from Halo itself. Luckily 343i developed a really great one with Halo 4, it is now my favorite in the series.
ado908  +   653d ago
It's destiny.
C4BL3  +   652d ago
news flash. Halo committed suicide 3 months ago. 343 was seen leaving the area with blood on their hands.
Belking  +   652d ago
bring it. Can't wait to play destiny.
GearSkiN  +   652d ago
goodness this type of article,,,
chukamachine  +   652d ago
Depends what bungie create.

If halo was in trouble, ms would be console wise.
MxRBrobaFett  +   652d ago
Everyone in that video has a terrible accent
ger2396  +   652d ago
They'll never come close to the success of halo. Also, it being timed exclusive might cost them sales on other platforms.
Loki86  +   652d ago
Destiny looks like it will be Bungie's Masterpiece and that is saying something. Also, has anyone played H4 lately it has gotten a hell of a lot better. Spartan Ops is starting to really shine, Forge playlists, team doubles, and several other improvements. Been having a blast playing again since the last update.
Martywren  +   648d ago
HELL NO! Halo have to much clout.
