Bungie, the creators of Xbox’s famed Halo series, has expressed plans for their next venture, although this time there is a twist. Bungie has previously embarked on first-person shooters with the Halo series and have created a top-down real-time strategy game with Halo Wars, now they want to create a Massively Multiplayer online game!
Bungie has hinted at MMO features in the past, however this month Bungie were rumoured to be making a first person MMO for Activision that is titled Destiny. This same game was said to use an all new game engine and was tagged as “World of Warcraft in space”, (Space following the setting for many Halo games).

In 2010 Bungie signed a ten year multi-platform contract with Activision, therefore it looks like this agreement has something to do with this MMO, Bungie had this to say about the MMO “we’re definitely looking at building a universe that people want to spend time in.”
There were rumors suggesting that Bungie’s MMO would be a Halo spin-off or a WoW copycat, however Bungie deny this, that said they are keeping very quiet about this mysterious game.
