Bungie Might Have Teased Their Next Big Game Way Back In Halo 3: ODST

Some people think Halo 3: ODST is a very underrated entry in the Xbox 360's signature franchise. But, based on the image above (which has been lightened to be viewed more easily), one of the last Halo games that Bungie worked on might have been important for other reasons.

Could they have been teasing Destiny three years ago? Well, there's the one inhabited planet with the smaller white globe, just like in the Destiny image from the leaked document. Sure seems like it was staring us right in the face, guys.

Thanks Christopher!


    I'm sorry it's Definantely Halo Reach and then Odst... people can say combat evolved but that is called being a gaming hipster! yeah it's great actually it was amazing but reach is the swan song of the Halo universe and I dont think it will ever be topped it had the best campaign so far and the best multiplayer too

      Actually my vote is still for the original Combat Evolved as it's the one that's given me the most fun. The rest are still good games but I just never enjoyed them as much as I did the original. My vote has nothing to do with nostalgia or trying to claim hipster cred from vintage games (if I was going to do something so stupid then I wouldn't go for something as recent as Halo) but has everything to do with the amount of time I spent enjoying an adrenaline rush instead of "going through the motions".

    ODST was a game with a different feeling to the other games. Less about ooh-rah space mahrines, more about that really lonely feeling of defending your home against unthinkable aliens and trying to find/save your comrades. The execution of both the linear and the emergent narratives was excellent, and really capitalised on the sandbox that resulted from Halo's excellent AI and the large (and largely corridor-less) map design. I enjoyed ODST's campaign more than any of the others.

    Also, it has, far and away, the best soundtrack of any Halo game (though I've not played #4 yet).

      Totally agree, ODST was a different beast, I love the isolation and sadness you could feel throughout the game. Plus the logs were absolutely fantastic, really made you feel the terror they would have gone through when the invasion happened.

    IMO: Halo 1 > Halo Reach > Halo 3 > Halo 4 > ODST > Halo 2

    Although I only played ODST once, I didn't feel right having my chief powers taken away, everything felt a bit nerfed. I get that it was a more toned down and realistic Halo, but I just wasn't won over by it. (Although a *bad* game in the Halo series is still a really damn good game)

    I don't think it's being a gaming hipster to say that the original Halo is the one I enjoyed the most...

      Halo 2 the worst halo... after reading that part I couldn't give two shits what you said under it.

      Clearly misses the point.

      Halo 2 > Halo 1 > Halo ODST > Halo Wars > Halo 4 > Halo Reach > Halo 3

      Much better

    ODST was criminally underrated.

    It makes me laugh that Bungie's 2 best Halo games were the ones made with very limited development time.

    CE and ODST.

    This is awesome times 6. like the creepy israel master chief
