Bungie hires former Red Dead Redemption developer for Destiny

Gameplay designer Danny Bulla of Red Dead Redemption fame has joined Bungie on its latest project, Destiny, reports GamesRadar.

Few details are currently known about Bungie's newest IP, but the company has announced that the game will be an open-world, sandbox title. According to a mail sack post, the team "liked Red Dead Redemption so much that we hired Danny Bulla to come here and help us fill your next sandbox."

"[Bulla]'s done some amazing work and, so far, he hasn't tried to lash any of us to a pair of railroad tracks," reads the post.

Destiny is a sci-fi action shooter reportedly for the Xbox 360 and next-generation Xbox due in fall of 2013. The game is also said to have an option for a release on the PlayStation 3 and beyond. The franchise is described as massively multiplayer in style. It will have at least four downloadable expansions beginning in 2014 and continuing into 2020-one to release in the years between every major game in the series. Further installments are expected to be compatible again with the Xbox and PlayStation, as well as PC.
