Bungie: Destiny's engine will last us 10 years, scales to next gen consoles

OXM UK: "Bungie has spent the past four years building a "state of the art" engine for its new shooter Destiny, senior engineers have revealed, and the developer expects that engine to last it an entire decade."

The story is too old to be commented.

"The world builder is designed for maximum efficiency, Chen explained, allowing artists to effect changes in a fraction of the time it would have taken them using older tech."

That's fantastic to hear. Updates and content will be far easier to maintain with that kind of system, meaning that we benefit from efficient workers who enjoy creating for us.

I really cannot wait for this game.

I guess PS4 AND 720 NO PC OR WIIU.

im pretty sure we will see a pc version.

Nice to know that the engine's efficient to build with, and that they've tucked back all the online features nicely, but it sure doesn't look all that spectacular in the footage they've released.

Yeah the visuals did leave a lot to be desired but if the game can accomdate huge vistas PLUS loads of on-screen characters/vehicles then I'm happy with it.

The art style is brilliant though. My current screen saver is the Traveller orb hovering over Earth and you notice subtle details like the clouds being pushed away due to the gravitational field of the Traveller etc.

Oh, I agree that the art style is brilliant. Love the whole "space barbarian" 70s sci-fi thing.

There hasn't been much footage to see any spectacularity with.

Most MMO's don't have great graphics and focus on open worldness, interaction, and gameplay mechanics.

From what I can tell, it's not a corridor shooter where all the RAM and processing power is focused on making said game look good for the short distance you see down the hall.

If anything, Bungie has shown that great games aren't just graphics focused, but game play and story focused i.e. the entire experience.

I'm excited about this game, because the art style and what Bungie describes is something fresh and new. I will judge the game when more is shown, and until then I'm excited!

They sure know how to use words efficiently, but the only thing concrete they showed so far was a 4 min making-of with a few seconds of in-game footage. That's pretty weak for somehting they've been developping for such a long time now. Show us more before making such statements.

Well, I have a feeling that they will unveil more on E3. This was just a glimpse into what Destiny is about and how ambitious it is. To be honest it worked; the hype meter for this is already over 9000.

Bungie's got a very efficient engine for X360. I expect even better for the next gen.
