More details continue to emerge about Bungie's shared world shooter Destiny, following its reveal at the developer's studio last week in Bellvue, Washington. An offical statement from the game's publisher, Activision, says that Destinty won't be released in 2013. The publisher said, "Although Bungie’s amazing new world was revealed today, Activision has not included the launch in its 2013 outlook and there should be no speculation or expectation of a different result”. So there you go: no Destiny launch scheduled for this year.
The statement went on to reiterate that the new game is confirmed for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles, but also added that it would also land on next-gen machines. "Bungie's new next-generation game engine will allow Destiny to come to life on both the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, as well as other future console platforms," Activision said.
You can read the entire statement here. If industry analysts are right and the next generation of consoles is set to arrive in 2013, then it's likely that Destiny will not be a launch title.
