Bungie, original creators of the well-loved Halo franchise, are hard at work on their next (and first) title set to release under publishers Activision. Contract details reveal new information regarding their mysterious project.

So, yeah. While we’re not ready to show you what we’ve been working on, we can reconfirm that we are hard at work on our new universe. We can’t wait for you to see it.

See you starside in 2013,

reads Bungie developer DeeJ’s latest entry on the official website.

According to contract details posted on LA Times, Bungie’s new universe, codenamed “Destiny,” is set to span four different “sci-fantasy, action-shooter games” beginning with their first release in 2013 with a sequel following every other year. Bungie has also agreed to provide additional content through four pieces of DLC set to release in the year between each title, summing up to eight years of steady releases alternating between full titles and DLC.

Initially, the first game is contracted to release exclusively on Micorsoft’s Xbox 360 as well its potential successor which the contract happens to refer to as the “Xbox 720.” However, later titles will see a release across Sony’s next-gen console as well as the PC.
