Amidst the rash of firings and studio closing that Activision has recently been making headlines for, somehow Bungie employees were caught in the crosshairs. Bungie has been secretively working on a new project for the publisher and zero details have been revealed about it…until now. Of the 30+ employees that were let go of in the firing spree, one came forward to announce the nature of the project.
The FPS MMO, is named Destiny – the game mixes FPS elements into an MMO with a Sci-Fi setting. According to the source, which confided with Kotaku that the company let of himself and around 30 other employees met the axe.
The ex-employee claims that the game, which is code-named Tiger, will run on a new proprietary graphics engine. As well as “feature a unique online connectivity feature and matchmaking service.”
I and about 30 other people were let go for no reason recently after Bungie decided to let go every employee who wasn’t full-time employed this included producers, artists, programmers, most of the IT staff, and security we were given no warning and were actually told there was a “full-time employee only meeting” and that we had to leave the building early, only to find out once we left that our email accounts were killed.
