Halo-makers to hint at new project

Halo Silent 3 New

Bungie set to offer glimpse at next decade of projects during GDC.

Fans of space-faring FPS series Halo might soon be given details on the series originator's next big project, Destiny.

Having spent its youth and built its reputation on creating and establishing the phenomenally successful Halo franchise, Bungie has much to live up to and plans to unveil some of its plans in a talk at this year's upcoming Game Developers Conference, titled: 'Brave New World: New Bungie IP'.

Set to spell out the company's vision of its next ten years, writer and design director Joe Staten and art director Christopher Barrett will deliver and hour-long address.

The talk will explain how the developer fashioned a new world for its next project, code-named Destiny, one filled with "even more amazing mysteries, places, creatures, and opportunities for player investment".

In addition to this, the creative duo will illustrate their talk with concept art and design case studies, perhaps offering up what fans can expect in their next title.

Having established the Halo franchise by working on the three original titles as well as Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach, the company handed over the reins of its most popular creation to 343 Industries, who made Halo 4.

As previously reported, Halo 4 raked in $220 million within 24-hours of its launch and represented the fastest-selling title in the series.

Since its release Halo 4 has been updated with free episodic content, Spartan Ops, a mix of story cinematics and playable chapters, with the latest five weekly installments to come out from the 21st January to 24th February.
