Proving their worth as one of gaming’s biggest companies, Activision Blizzard Inc has pledged that upcoming Bungie game ‘Destiny’ will have a $500 million dollar budget spent developing and promoting the game. Clearly the company has a lot of faith in Bungie, having signed a ten year exclusive deal that will most likely see the growth of Destiny into a multi-media franchise. Activision are hoping to tap into the same success that made Bungie’s previous franchise Halo so successful. Destiny will be Bungie’s first game outside of the Halo series, and looks to employ a cross hybrid between the FPS and MMO genre. Destiny is due for release September 9 2014 worldwide.
