Developer Bungie is scheduled to host a session at this year’s Game Developers Conference in which members of the former Halo studio will discuss its current work-in-progress project, Destiny.

The presentation, titled ‘Brave New World: New Bungie IP’, promises to give attendees an hour-long insight into the team’s world building process, with a specific focus on the collaboration between art and design.

GDC 2013 offers the following description for the session:

“Two decades of success in the gaming industry is no small feat, but after ten years of Halo, Bungie found themselves faced with a tremendous challenge: to build a whole new world, filled with even more amazing mysteries, places, creatures, and opportunities for player investment.”

“For the first time ever, Bungie creative directors will discuss their world building techniques, from concept to production. Attendees will walk away with key insights into Bungie's battle-tested design process. They'll get a glimpse of the brave new world that has been built, a place where the next ten years of great Bungie adventures will unfold.”

Bungie hasn’t ever officially revealed Destiny, but concept art (which you can see in the gallery above), plot and gameplay info were leaked last November.

GDC 2013 is taking place in San Francisco on March 25-29.

    I just wish this wasn't published by Activision, I'm sure they'll ruin it with their greedy practices. I'm not really interested, unless they can show that they aren't going to be malevolent toward their customers with their IP.

    I'm actually pretty hyped for this game. Never invested enough time into Halo, but I do realize its a great franchise. Destiny is probably going to make me start playing my 360 again, if it comes out on the 360...

    Can't wait for this! Bungie free from the control of Micro$oft has the potential to create something awesome. GDC needs to hurry up and get here.

    Ok. You have my attention. Could this be one of the last great new IPs to be released on the current gen? I was never caught up in the Halo buzz, but I want to see this in action

    I'm only voicing the perspective of one user who commented on the earlier release of screenshots for this game sometime ago, because I think this person was totally accurate when they observed that it kind of looks like Bungie/Halo's sweeping and grandiose style and future sci-fi aesthetics meeting up with Star Wars I mean, look at the design of some of those ships in screens 4 and 9, note the floating mecha-moon above this lush green planetscape, and try to tell me that the first screen doesn't scream Hoth from the Empire Strikes Back. I don't point this out as a bad thing. It all looks very pleasing. There's no way Halo meets Star Wars could not win. As long they keep life-force telekinesis space magic out of this, it'll probably kick ass. But who knows, it may still be cool to have some Force equivalent thing going on in this universe. Just don't try to, y'know, explain it as some kind of... life-force space magic.

    That's a major run-on sentence, it appears the period I wanted to put after "Star Wars" never manifested. Sorry.

    Totally irrelevant, but the snow reminded me. What happened to Lost Planet 3?
  • FlyWire2 - January 17, 2013 8:47 a.m.

    I was unexcited until I saw it's coming for PS3 too. Now I ajsdjbabhfakhbfhasdbfajksdbfjkad over excitement.

    I'm digging the idea of getting into a new universe, they may have me if the game is good and there are books published for it. As long as Karen Travis doesn't get a hold of the dang thing anyway.

    So... Looks like halo.
  • bigwill1221 - January 17, 2013 7:01 a.m.

    is clearly blind.
  • Bloodstorm - January 17, 2013 7:36 a.m.

    Sure, if you've never seen a frame of Halo in your life, then it looks exactly like Halo. Seriously, can people stop being so ignorantly biased.
