Bungie’s ‘Destiny’ Budget Looking At The Half-Billion Dollar Mark

Bungie’s highly-anticipated new game Destiny has a huge scope, but now we’re seeing just how big that scope is reaching, financially.

According to Reuters, at the Milken conference in Los Angeles last week, Kotick revealed just how much money they could end up spending on this truly massive game. He said the following:

“If you’re making a $500 million bet you can’t take that chance with someone else’s IP,” he stated. “The stakes for us are getting bigger.”

This is, without question, an insane amount of money and will be one of the biggest budgets in the history of all of gaming. Reuters was informed that, in order for the game to break even, Bungie would need to push around 16 million copies of the game.

PvP In ‘Destiny’ Isn’t Unlocked From The Start

Destiny developer Bungie has gone on record saying that the PvP element of the game will not be available to players when they first load up the game. According to them, that feature will be unlocked after getting a few hours into the game.

The subject came up when Bungie’s Tyson Green did an interview with Eurogamer, where he said the following:

“We found early on that people here in the studio, when they jumped on the game – these were people who were already really familiar with the game mechanics – they would roll a new character, play through the first mission then go right into PvP, and they would just get really beaten up by the other players because they didn’t have a super ability yet and they’d only got an auto rifle from the first mission,”

He goes on to say:

“So when your first character unlocks PvP, you’re a little bit further into the game. You’ve probably done one or two of the campaign missions, probably unlocked a special weapon and your super ability. And then once that’s happened we unlock it for all the characters on your account. Once you know how the game works, if you want to take a Hunter into PvP at level three, yeah, we’re okay with that. You know what the game is at that point, so that’s your decision to make.”

This seems like a really smart move on Bungie’s end. Rather than unlocking PvP from the get go and having a bunch of people rage quitting because they are getting their butts handed to them, let everyone get their feet wet with the mechanics of the game for a few hours before duking it out with others.

Destiny is being developed for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One and is due for release on September 9th.

‘Destiny’ Classes Trailer Shows Off All 3 Classes In Battle

Some new trailers were released recently by Bungie that shows off each of the game’s 3 classes; which are Hunter, Titan and Warlock. However, they have just released a new trailer that is montage of all 3 classes, giving a better look at the upcoming mayhem.

The trailer shows off a lot of different kinds of gameplay that reminds me a lot of Mass Effect crossed with Halo, which definitely isn’t a bad thing. The 3 classes all have their pros and cons and it looks like there will be plenty of different ways of handling combat in this game.

Destiny is set to come out for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9th. Check out the Classes trailer below.

Condemn (OR) Condone:

This trailer shows off some really impressive action sequences and I really like how their is both first-person and third-person elements to the combat. Everything looks really solid, but there isn’t anything in particular that has really wowed me in the trailer. Thus, my judgment is Condone.

Halo Composer Marty O’Donnell Fired From Bungie?

The composer of the Halo series Marty O’Donnell is claiming that he has been fired from Bungie without cause.

O’Donnell posted the following message on twitter:

“I’m saddened to say that Bungie’s board of directors terminated me without cause on April 11, 2014.”

Although O’Donnell claims that there was no rhyme or reason to this parting, Bungie claims that it all happened on friendly terms. Bungie said the following in a statement:

“For more than a decade, Marty O’Donnell filled our worlds with unforgettable sounds and soundtracks, and left an indelible mark on our fans. Today, as friends, we say goodbye. We know that wherever his journey takes him, he will always have a bright and hopeful future.”

Condemn (OR) Condone:

Something is definitely fishy here. If O’Donnell is claiming that he was just let go and Bungie is making it sound like it was all friendly, then it’s obvious there is more this picture. Either there was an argument, artistic differences or Bungie was just plain bored of what O’Donnell was doing, it looks like Bungie just gave him the boot. Doesn’t sound all that friendly, to me.
