Bungie confirms Destiny reveal for February 17

Officially confirmed title gets social hubs, reveal date

Bungie has officially confirmed its new game, titled Destiny, will be revealed on February 17.


"So, our game is called Destiny," reads a message on Bungie's site.

"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," it adds.

The developer is a little more specific with a reveal date on its Destiny Facebook page: "You can be the first to see the reveal of Destiny right here on Feb. 17 (T-Minus 5 days)," it says.

In addition to the aforementioned Facebook page, new Twitter and Google+ feeds have been set up for Destiny.

As reported earlier today, a web site teasing a reveal within seven days was launched, containing cryptic puzzles and riddles.

This follows news last week that Bungie will unveil its new Destiny unvierse "within a matter of weeks", indicating that news will come before the previously confirmed GDC reveal.

Plot and concept art details for Destiny leaked in November last year, pointing to "a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise" said to be "fun and accessible to all."

According to the leaked docs, Destiny will feature a story set seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System "littered with the ruins of man's Golden Age". Hit the link for more Destiny details.
