The one-time Halo studio Bungie wants to come out swinging with its next IP Destiny, saying that that they don’t want the game to be just “good enough” but rather something that’s ground breaking, according to a report today from GameSpot.
In the Bungie Weekly Update post to the studio’s website, the Destiny developers said want players to come away from the game with a different viewpoint about playing video games.
“At Bungie, we want to make a game that matters –– to break new ground in your imagination. We don't want to make something that’s just good enough to ship," Bungie said. "Our goal is to change the way you think about all the games you play.”
Destiny will be the first title from Bungie’s partnership with Call of Duty publisher Activision, and the first game since the studio moved on from developing the Halo franchise for Microsoft.
Earlier this month analysts with Cowen & Company said lifetime sales of Destiny could reach 10 million, and that the game could convince gamers to swap brands from Activision’s cash cow Call of Duty.
Destiny is slated to launch for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PS4 on Sept. 9, and betas on the Sony platforms should launch sometime this summer.
