Internet super sleuth Superannuation scooped an intriguing detail about Bungie's upcoming online sci-fi shooter, Destiny, on Monday. An Activision employee's resume indicates that the publisher is looking at some sort of monetization model for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and next-gen Xbox game.

The LinkedIn profile for Activision Ryan Wener, a senior director of marketing and product management, says that he is currently working on "monetization modeling."

Details on what this monetization model may are currently up in the air but Bungie has talked at length about the costume choices for the three known playable races that will be available in Destiny during a panel at GDC. Additionally, lead designer Joseph Staten hinted that the game might include episodic content in a previous interview.

That Activision is seeking to monetize Destiny should be no surprise given its history with DLC for Call of Duty and other titles. How Bungie implements the monetization will be key though since the game is primarily built for online multiplayer. A pay to win monetization program will likely be met with backlash from fans.

Destiny is currently due out sometime in 2014 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and next Xbox.
