Sooooo, I know there was a ridiculous amount of speculation back in the day of Halo's connection to Marathon, and officially it has been stated repeatedly now that there is no connection (even though Alex Seropian at one point said Master Chief and the cyborg security officer from Marathon were the same guy as far as he's concerned, a lot has changed in the Halo universe since then), BUT there were certainly nods to Marathon in Halo and at least thematic connections and references as Bungie often do from game to game. So, the place I'm going with this, as the subject line would tip you off too, is Destiny's loose possible connections to Halo, or any of Bungie's other series. I'd guess there will at least likely be references and easter eggs referencing their previous work, but the place this Destiny story starts, is about 150 to 200 years after the years Halo would take place in, and the place Bungie left humanity at the end of Halo 3 sounds not TOO far off from where humanity is when Destiny picks up. Humanity driven back to Earth, and even a lot of Earth's population got taken out in Halo 3 when the Elites tried to cleanse the Flood landing in Africa. At the end of Halo 3 there's still seems to be a lot more people left than just one city on Earth, but in the 150 years difference, it's not too much of a stretch to think humanity could be driven down to that point. Now of course [i]officially[/i] and [i]legally[/i] this will definitely not be in the same universe as Halo, or anything at all connected to Halo as MS owns that and Destiny is owned by Bungie, but the way Bungie likes to tie their past works together, does anyone else think that the way Destiny's story seems to be starting is at least sort of [i]thematically[/i] tied to the way Halo 3 ends?
