Yesterday the former Halo developer Bungie unveiled more about its upcoming project called Destiny. Not much was shown in the way of gameplay footage, but screenshots and plenty of hype concerning the consoles the game would be available on were mentioned. Unfortunately, it looks like Wii U and the PC are the black sheep of the current console crowd.
Destiny is set up to be an MMO shooter with a strong focus on co-operative gameplay. This is relatively new in the realm of first-person shooters, so it makes sense that the people who pioneered regenerating health and weapon limitations would be the ones to tackle a true MMOFPS game.
In regards to not being released for Wii U, Bungie COO Pete Parsons gave the following statement to Eurogamer:
“You’ll definitely be playing on Xbox and you’ll definitely be playing on PlayStation.”
Adding to that statement was Activision’s Publishing head Eric Hirshberg:
“Until there are official announcements from the first parties obviously we can’t comment on any platforms that might be forthcoming, but what we can say is we are building Destiny to be wherever gamers are.”
The Wii U is the only platform that was not specifically mentioned, as even the PC gets a nod with Bungie saying they’d love to see the game on PC at some point. This is a small blow considering Bungie’s project is considered to be the next-generation of gaming, but they could still surprise us. How do you feel about this?
