We're mere weeks away from what could be considered the first true "next-gen" experience.
Bungie has confirmed that their hotly anticipated shared-world shooter, Destiny , has officially gone gold. This means it will undoubtedly be on store shelves on its intended launch date of September 9.
Said Bungie's David "DeeJ" Dague in the developer's update:
"Destiny is done, in some respects. Even now, so close to the end, it still feels like we’re just getting started. How we’ll keep things lively on the frontier is a longer conversation – the sort of thing you could base an entire discussion around – a conversation that we hope is long and fruitful and just getting started in its own right."
They've said in the past that Destiny has a ten-year lifespan, which could allow it to become yet another billion-dollar IP for Activision. The publisher also has a new Skylanders and Call of Duty coming out later this year, so they'll definitely be on a roll. Destiny is GameStop's most-pre-ordered new IP in history, some retailers haven't managed to keep the Limited Edition in stock, and 4.6 million people participated in the beta test last month.
So yeah, this one's gonna be big .
