Bungie’s done with Halo, the franchise it created, so what’s next for the developer? Destiny, the firm’s next series of games unsealed by court documents outlining its ten-year contract with Activision. Must read details below the break.

Bungie’s contract with Activision went into effect in April of 2010, revealing that four games are planned for Destiny, the game’s codename, within the contract’s duration. The first game in the “sci-fantasy, action shooter” series is planned for a release on Xbox 360 and Xbox 720 fall of next year, according to the original agreement, with future entries coming in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Four downloadable expansion packs for Destiny codenamed “Comet” are to be released during the years between major Destiny games, starting in fall 2014, then continuing in 2016, 2018, and 2020.

Destiny is also a timed Xbox 360 exclusive, however it seems as if the game will be released on next generation consoles simultaneously, as well as Windows PC. Also, Four downloadable expansion packs for Destiny codenamed “Comet” will see releases during the years between major Destiny games, starting in fall 2014, then continuing in 2016, 2018, and 2020, with the first “major downloadable content expansion pack” being made available for Xbox 360 and the “Xbox 720,” according to the contract.

According to the contract, unsealed as part of the ongoing lawsuit between Activision and former Infinity Ward bosses Jason West and Vince Zampella, “Destiny” is a “massively-multiplayer-style” game, and the genre as having “client based mission structures with persistent elements.” Bungie plans to go beyond four games and four add-ons with the franchise, comprising “a blend of retail packaged goods sales, subscriptions, downloadable content, value-added services and micro-transactions.”
