Bungie’s upcoming new IP will feature a new secret world in parallel with the Destiny franchise, the studio’s design director has said.
In a new interview with Japanese gaming website 4Gamer, design director Jacob Benton talked about the future of Destiny 2. In the interview, Benton was also asked about the new IP that Bungie has confirmed to be planning for a release in 2025. We’ve included the Google Translated question from 4Gamer and Benton’s reply down below:
"One of the references to the future is "to bring at least one new IP to the market by 2025". Do you already have a plan? What kind of work is it likely to be?"
"Can't tell you more at this point, but our team is working on a new secret world in parallel with Destiny. We are looking firmly at 2025.
As expected with the game being so far out, no further details about Bungie’s new IP were revealed. Still, it’s interesting to learn that the studio’s new franchise will bring a new world in parallel with Destiny."
Bungie already revealed to be working on a new IP back in 2019, although the studio’s CEO only recently re-confirmed its plans in an official blog post back in February of this year. In the same post, the studio outlined its growth plans with new offices and an expansion in TV and films.
Finally, Bungie has appointed Jonny Ebbert (Chief Creative Officer) and Zach Russell (General Manager, Incubation) to build and drive the creative vision and foundation for Bungie’s future worlds alongside the next generation of leaders at Bungie, with plans to bring at least one new IP to market before 2025. Jason Jones (Chief Vision Officer) takes on a talent-facing role to help Bungie’s top creative leadership unlock their full potential at the company.
