We just took a look at Bungie’s ViDoc for their new title, Destiny, and what should set them on the course for the next ten years in game development for the masses.
But when we ventured on to Bungie’s website, we noticed that the source code for the game included a listing for “ps4” as well as “xbox720”, “psvita”, “pc”, and “wiiu” within it. Take a look at a snap of the website’s code for yourself, all taken from www.destinythegame.com, a website owned by Bungie to let people learn about the game:
There is other code that lists off the available pre-order options for the game which, at this point, are limited to current-gen offerings, but could easily be expanded to include next generation consoles as well.
Is Bungie just listing off consoles at this point, or are these actual consoles that they are planning to release games on? If they’re just listing off console possibilities, why is there no mention of 3DS?
Update: Eurogamer has an article saying that Bungie would “absolutely love to be on the PC … So, stay tuned.” Sounds like they’ve already planned it out to us.
Update #2: A few users on NeoGAF have pointed out that Activision often uses placeholders in all their source code, specifically for Black Ops II‘s website. However, after doing a whois search of both domains, the Black Ops II site, as well as Activision.com is registered to Mary Tuck, Senior Director of Litigation at the company. The Bungie website we noted above, www.destinythegame.com, is a private domain. It makes us wonder why if all other Activision domains are publicly registered. Could the domain be registered by Bungie and they’re not just placeholders? We have a feeling we’ll find out when Sony announces whatever they’re going to announce next week. We’ve posted a bunch of whois reference links for anyone interested in seeing the ownership of these things.
