According to a report today from VG 24/7, Bungie Studios has hinted that its widely anticipated title Destiny may require co-op in the final missions of the game.

Speaking with Game Informer, Bungie co-founder and Halo creator Jason Jones said that gamers can “absolutely” play Destiny by themselves, though the words “single-player campaign” have been removed the studio’s vocabulary.

“We describe it in a lot of ways as sloping the floor toward socialization, without putting a requirement on it,” Jones said.

However, Jones said that the “end-game activities” in Destiny –– the highest level of intensity –– would “require cooperation” to complete.

“I guess at some variable, distant endpoint we are going to say, ‘Yeah, if you show up at this door, and you don’t have five friends, you’re not going to be able to succeed,’” Jones said.

Though Jones said the “core experience” of for gamers who wish to play on their own will still be there.

Bungie set out to kind of usher gamers toward a more social experience in gaming with Destiny, to draw gamers into that social aspect, Jones said.

“But we’re going to give you this great player-progression on top of that, and we’re going to give you as many opportunities as we possibly can to expose you to other people,” Jones said.

But, in the end, Destiny isn’t going to force playing with other gamers with the title.

Destiny is set to hit the shelves worldwide on Sept. 9 for the PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
