Bungie's FPS MMO Named Destiny

Posted on Thursday, February 17 @ 13:21:18 Eastern by


An anonymous source who claims to have been let go by Bungie in his (or her) group of 30 employees by Activision's order has suggested that Bungie's FPS MMO codenamed 'Tiger' is actually 'Destiny'. Maybe it looks like the scrapped "Halo MMO" by Ensemble Studios (pictured above), maybe not. Bungie has updated its site saying that the firings were absolutely not ordered by Activision, but did not go on to deny anything else.

As it is with most people who get fired due to 'poor performance', this source is livid at Bungie:

Bungie told our agencies that it was “performance related” – but one of our fellow fired-employees was an IT contractor, and showed us an email he received before his account was killed, citing “project sensitivity” and “budgetary concerns from our publisher” budgetary concerns is laughable considering the scraps we were paid.

Bungie can’t get away with firing 30+ people, leaving them stuck surprised and having to find new work to feed their families, unable to get unemployment benefits because of the false ‘performance related’ remarks. One of the IT contractors let go actually had just won an award for his performance that afternoon.
