Kotaku‘s reporting, via a “source,” that Bungie’s new, Activision-published IP, is a massive-multiplayer shooter known as “Destiny.”

The game is said to be a first-person shooter, according to a recently laid-off contractor, and the project is codenamed “Tiger.”

The game will run on a new graphics engine as well as feature “unique online connectivity and matchmaking technology”.

The site’s source labelled the project as “WoW in space.”

The contractor also claimed there was “budgetary concerns” and “unfair treatment” ongoing at Bungie.

Last April, Bungie announced a ten-year publishing deal with Activision for its next major “universe”.

No details have emerged on the new IP, but, at GDC Online last year, head story writer at the studio Joe Staten hinted at “a world that was always there for you.”
