Bungie gears up for Destiny reveal

Halo creator Bungie is almost ready to pull back the curtain on Destiny, it's next epic game project. The reveal is expected over the weekend of February 16th - 17th, but the developer has got the ball rolling early with a blog post, a slew of social media channels and an intriguing viral puzzle.

"So, our game is called Destiny," reads the latest post on the Bungie.net website. "In a matter of days, we're going to give you your first glimpse into the vision and ambition that's driving the creation of our brave new world."

If you want to stay on top of the announcements, Bungie has set up an official Twitter account - @destinythegame - as well as dedicated pages on Facebook, Instagram and Google+. More fascinating is a spin-off website - alphalupi.bungie.net. Solving the puzzles on the site will apparently unlock images and clues related to the game. As Bungie was one of the first to seize the potential of viral marketing and augmented reality with the infamous "ilovebees" game that tied into Halo 2.

Destiny has been in development for several years now, and marks Bungie's first game outside the Halo universe in over ten years and its first multiplatform game since becoming independent from Microsoft. Activision will publish Destiny, but whether it will be for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 or next generation consoles remains to be seen.
