Responding to rumors that Bungie may be working on other projects such as a reboot of the Marathon series, Bungie Director of Production Jonty Barnes said that nope, all of Bungie’s eggs are in the Destiny basket. Fortunately for them, it’s a very nice basket.
“I think it’s very hard to imagine anything detracting from our focus on Destiny right now,” Barnes told Total Xbox. “I think we’ve got really ambitious plans going forward, we’ve really built a foundation for the universe and we have really elaborate plans to build upon it.
“And I think one thing that I’ve learned over the years as a studio manager on multiple projects, like multiple Halos and between Destiny and Halo was – there’s nothing better than the entire focus of the studio to do something really ambitious, and I think as the complexity and demands on games to be great pieces of entertainment, the more eyes you can have on it and the more expertise, the more chance you have of success.”
Barnes said the putting the entire company’s focus on Destiny gives Bungie “more chance of eclipsing what we’d done before”so “it’s all about Destiny for – as far as I can tell.”
Destiny will be out Sept. 9 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3.
