If you were hoping for a surprise Destiny announcement on PS Vita at Sony’s upcoming E3 press conference, we may have some disappointing news to bring you. Halo developers Bungie has recently distanced themselves from a ‘faked’ Destiny of Spirits image that has been circulating online, refusing to confirm whether or not a PS Vita game is in development.
If it is, it certainty won’t have the logo as you see above, as Bungie has told IGN that it is fake. More interesting though, they have also said that when they announce something, ‘they will use their main logo’. That tells us that there still may be a glimmer of hope that a game is on the way in the future – it’s just this particular image isn’t accurate.
What is accurate is that Sony has already trademarked the term ‘Destiny of Spirits’. We are already seeing Guerilla develop a PS Vita game called Killzone Mercenary, alongside Shadow Fall for the PS4, so could Bungie be planning a similar move with their exciting new IP on the way?
Having said that, Destiny is looking like a beast in terms of graphics potential – so would the PS Vita actually be able to run the game in a way that would do Bungie justice? The developer is held in very high regard after their Halo series on Xbox and the last thing they would want to do is assign a different developer to make the game and have it turn out like Black Ops Declassified.
It could just be the fact that both Sony and Bungie are trying to keep the game a secret until E3, much like Ubisoft are attempting to do with Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix – tried and failed as we all know. Either way, let us know your ideas on Destiny coming to the PS Vita as Destiny of Spirits.
Could it be possible on the PS Vita hardware, and would you like to see a toned down game or not?
