Chances Of 'Destiny' Being Showed At The VGAs?

[b] I know I know, probably won't happen and setting myself up for disappointment, but doesn't hurt to hope [/b] So, anyways, that means that Bungie has made some progress of the game and can show it off slightly. Probably not a lot, but they could perhaps scrape together a tiny teaser trailer. So, coming up soon are the VGAs (December 7th). The VGAs are a big place for announcement and trailers, and a big reasons why people watch them, while I really doubt it, maybe Bungie will finally show us a glance at Destiny during the VGAs? Also a notable thing, from Bungie's contract with Activison, The first game will release in 2013, and depending what quarter of 2013, Bungie probably doesn't have many big opportunities left to reveal Destiny. They have the VGAs, E3 (which is June 13, 2013, half-way into the year, which is a little to late to reveal a AAA game coming out in 2013.), Bungie Day (July 7, which is even later than E3), or they could just pick any random day, but E3 and the VGAs would leave the Biggest splash. So, how good do you guys think the chances of Destiny being revealed finally during the VGAs are? Update: Geoff Keighley just tweeted this: [url]http://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/status/273591783844356097[/url] I'm %100 percent sure that he's referring to Destiny. Also said before, Geoff said that the VGA will have a "sneak at the next-generation of gaming". Destiny IS a title for the Xbox 720, so... could he have referring to Destiny? I'm now %100 sure Destiny will be at the VGAs. I'm hyped! [Edited on 11.27.2012 5:37 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CanineThewolvie One week ago i was like 50% of chance for Destiny to be shown, but now it's pretty clear it's up to 100%. The question is will Bungie show actual gameplay or just a teaser trailer ? and if it's a teaser will it be in CG pre-renderd or real time ? [/quote]Bungie's always been a fan of showing off their game engine, both in trailers and in cutscenes, and I expect the Destiny reveal to be no different. Not only does it show off the concept of the game, but it shows off the strength of their engine. As to whether it will show actual gameplay, that's up in the air. I imagine the trailer will give us a strong impression as to what the gameplay should be like, even if it isn't direct gameplay footage. See the [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyDvT7XpaBc]Dishonored Debut Trailer[/url]. Dishonored was also a new intellectual property, and they wanted to put their best foot forward with the trailer. The trailer introduces you to Dunwall with the plague, it's oppressive treatment of the lower class, and it introduces you to the basic premise of the plot. You're a dude who was locked up, but is now freed and given powers to get revenge against the people who wronged him. The second thing the trailer does is give you a strong impression of what the gameplay will be like, even if the footage is not direct gameplay footage. I could tell immediately when watching that trailer way back when that the gameplay was going to be played from the first person perspective from the trailer's heavy uses of the first person shots. They show a lot of platforming and sneaking around, his main magical abillities which he uses to quickly take out guards, etc. Expect the Destiny trailer to be along the same lines, I think.

  • I think it's possible, but pretty unlikely. Bungie is about 50/50 on announcing their projects along side of big gaming events.

  • I think it's pretty damn likely now. But won't be surprised if nothing is at the VGAs.

  • Destiny [b][u]2[/u][/b] is a title for the 720. Destiny is gonna be a closer for the 360. And the odds of it being shown at VGA's are pretty good so hopefully we'll see some in action stuff.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] acnboy34 I believe we'll see Destiny at the VGAs, however, I don't feel the Webteam is ready to launch Bungie.next quite just yet. Based on Bungie's history updating things (see: halo reach launch -- site was rehauled that day, meantime were many minor tweaks), perhaps it's better to assume Bungie.next is coming when Destiny arrives as well. [/quote] whaddablam is bungie.next

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Centauratron [/quote] You don't have to watch them if all you're after is Destiny information. Just wait for Bungie or someone else to upload the trailer to YouTube. [Edited on 11.28.2012 1:48 AM PST]

  • I can't imagine it not making a show at the VGAs, especially after today. I wasn't even going to watch the VGAs, but now I have to!

  • E3 would be way too late to announce a video game that comes out in the Fall. I personally believe that Destiny will likely show at the VGA's, but if not, it will definitely be announced [i]before[/i] E3.

  • Anything less than an epic reveal trailer will be a complete letdown. We already know it's coming out Fall 2013. Let the hype begin already!!

  • Yeah, I would say a 99% chance now of at least something. I'd be okay with a trailer like Halo: Reach's at the VGA's. More than teaser, but nothing real substantial, just a chance to see the game's visuals in action. What I'm really hoping is that, also like Reach, we get a Game Informer blow out of Destiny for the following month's issue. But that might be grasping at straws. [Edited on 11.27.2012 11:21 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Elem3nt 117 I still doubt it. That tweet of Geoff Keighley could mean anything. Also if I'm horribly wrong and the game does get revealed at the VGA. [b]I will lose a tad amount of respect for Bungie. [/b][/quote] They showed Reach off at the VGA's so why don't you just lose that respect right now. That was a really stupid post.
