Bungie Sets a Date with Destiny at GDC 2013

Bungie, the developer best known for creating the Halo franchise, will disclose the very first official information about its brand new intellectual property at the Game Developers Conference in March. According to the convention’s schedule, the studio will host an hour-long presentation dubbed ‘Brave New World: New Bungie IP’. You don’t need an astrophysics degree to deduce what that will entail.

The lecture will be hosted by design director Joe Staten and art director Christopher Barrett, both of whom are long-term Bungie employees. During the talk, the duo will provide an insight into the studio’s “battle-tested design process", in addition to its “world building techniques, from concept to production”.

Details about Destiny, the company’s upcoming Activision published title, leaked last year. Apparently, the game will be set in the future, in a universe where the remnants of humanity attempt to defend the Earth from an alien race. We still reckon that the early concept art (above) looks sort of rubbish, but, hey, we’re certainly open to learning more.

It'll be interesting to see what they've come up with. Hoping they don't go the easy route and basically make it an open world Halo or something like that, though. Give us something fresh!

"looks sort of rubbish,"? Sammy, sometimes I just don't know what you crazy kids are all about these days! Ha!
Some of the other "leaked" character art is poor, but the environmental art, grand scale art, and this piece shown here, while rough, that's production art for you, is all really quite nice and excites ones imagination. At least it excites mine.

To tell you the truth though, I doubt Bungie would release a piece that looked anything like what it looks like now. I'll bet that it's an older piece, just like some of the leaked art looks like it would have been drawn up fairly early in the development cycle.
