It's been almost two years since Bungie's last game, Halo: Reach, was released and details about their new games have been scant. But the studio's plans were inadvertently made public this week by documents released as part of the on-going legal battle with Call of Duty co-creators Jason West and Vince Zampella and Activision.
Bungie's newest project, code-named "Destiny," is scheduled to be a series of four games released every other beginning in 2013 published by Activision. The first game is planned for release only on the Xbox 360--and possibly its successor--with later games planned for next-generation Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
In the off-years the studio will release a major downloadable addition to the previous year's game, code-named "Comet." The contract describes the game as a "sci-fantasy action shooter," but doesn't offer any further details on what it will be about.
The studio also insisted on being able to use up to 5% of its workforce to work on a prototype project for a successor to Marathon, the futuristic shooter that helped make Bungie famous in the mid-90s.
