Bungie's Destiny heavily inspired by episodic TV
Colin Gallacher | 4 years ago
Speaking with Gamespot, Bungie's design director Joe Stanton said that Destiny has taken a different direction in terms of influences and inspirations.
"I think typically, for the Halo games, we looked at movies. But really for this game, we looked at serial television; great dramas like Lost or The Wire; Battlestar Galactica," Staten said.
"When you're building a world and you want to evolve it over time, it really helps to have an understanding of how you build this longer-form narrative. So for us, that was a really interesting new thing we did," he added. "I think we probably spend more time watching television these days than we do movies and that's definitely influenced the way we think about building our story."
Destiny is Bungie's first game under a new publishing deal with Activision lasting 10 years. The game is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, with more platforms expected to be announced soon.
