Bungie Using Academy Award-Winning Facial Tech in Destiny

Faceware Technologies has announced that it will be working with Bungie to deliver truly next-gen faces to gamers in the upcoming shared-world shooter, Destiny.

Faceware hails itself as "the leading innovator and most experienced provider of markerless 3D facial motion capture solutions," so it comes as no surprise that Bungie decided to employ the help of company of such talent. After all, Actvision is surely giving the team a flexible budget to work with.

"When we develop a game at Bungie, our goal is to fuse brilliant technology, beautiful art, compelling stories, and deep gameplay into games that audiences worldwide want to play,” Bungie's Cinematics Supervisor Dave Lieber explained.

"Faceware has been used on Academy Award-winning movies and some of the highest grossing AAA videos games of all time," he added. "There’s a reason for that: their products are production proven, easy to use, and indispensable to any team wanting to elevate the realism of their character performances without being locked into a particular capture pipeline, rig or art style."

Destiny is set to launch on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PS4 on September 9th.
