A couple of months back, we broke the story of ‘Destiny’, the game reported to be the new IP Bungie is working on for Activision. Now, as reported by Bungie fansite HBO, new evidence has surfaced supporting that claim.
Doing some fantastic detective work, HBO followed a paper trail on a company called Podophobia Entertainment, a company formed by Bungie’s Harold Ryan – a trademark search under that company unearthed a trademark for ‘Destiny’.
Under the ‘goods and services’ section, the trademark refers to Destiny as being…
Computer game software; Computer game software downloadable from a global computer network; Video game software; Virtual reality game software.
It seems more and more likely that ‘Destiny’ does exist and, considering the ex-contractor we spoke to originally was already aware of ‘Destiny’ in name, that may add legitimacy to his claim that the game is an MMO “set in space”.
HBO’s search also unearthed what looks like a logo, which you can view above.
