Something hit us. Knocked us down and tried to stamp us out. No one knows exactly what, but we do know this: very few of us survived, and those that did owe their lives to the The Traveler.
Legends say The Traveler sacrificed itself to save us. The mysterious sphere still hangs where it made its last stand, low above the Earth, keeping silent watch.
The years that followed the collapse of the golden age were hard, but slowly we joined together to build a city beneath The Traveler. And now we've begun to venture back into the wild, only to find that we're not alone. Strange and deadly creatures have occupied our old worlds. And they're pressing hard against The City, probing for a weakness, trying to stamp us out for good.
Your story begins at this moment of great adventure and peril. You are a Guardian of The City; a soldier able to wield some of The Traveler's incredible power. If you can find a way to save The City -- to reclaim all that we have lost -- you will become legend. If you fail, the last light of civilization will go out.
When working on the Halo series, Bungie wanted to move away from their affiliation with the highly successful game series and move on to a new project, this project would later turn into Destiny. Bungie described the Halo franchise as a more "hard" side of the science fiction genre, whereas Destiny was designed to be more mythological. They would create a world that was fundamentally grounded in science, yet held some fantasy elements. During the original design phase, the game appeared more fantasy than science fiction, with designs for Knights, Swords, Sorcery, and a White city on a hill, akin to Camelot in Arthurian tales. However, due to the designers preference for science fiction they decided to incorporate the elements of both into this world.
 FranchiseAt the Sony Press Conference in February 2013 they revealed that Destiny will come bundled with content exclusively for the Sony consoles. Bungie also revealed that the game will not currently be coming to other platforms as they worry it will "spread the company too thin", however they did not rule out the possibility of the game making its way onto PC at some point in the future.
Initially the release date expected for the game was Q3/4 2013, however when Activision released their line up of games in 2013, Destiny did not appear. Activision followed the absence of the game with a statement saying "Activision has not included the launch in its 2013 outlook and there should be no speculation or expectation of a different result." Since then a public beta has been announced for release in Summer 2014 and the full launch of the game to appear later in the same year on September 9, 2014.
Both Bungie and Activision have reaffirmed the idea that Destiny will be an MMO game, but have made it clear that there will be no subscription fee. Akin to most MMO games, the game may feature micro-transaction in-game, however it has not been confirmed either way as to if the game will or will not feature them, or if they do feature them, how they will do so. Bungie has stated, however, that should they include them, they will not be "pay-for-power" or "nickel and dime" that take advantage of the player to make them pay more.

- The game was hinted at in Bungie's previous game Halo 3: ODST, 3 years before its official announcement. A poster appeared with the words "Destiny Awaits" along with a picture of the Earth and a White Spherical Object above its surface, alluding to the Traveler.
- Podophobia Entertainment, the company that trademarked the logo, have also submitted a trademark for the term "Be Brave". This could be the next game in the Destiny series or something unrelated entirely.
- The game will feature various different pre-order bonuses.
