French retailer Micromania has Bungie’s Destiny down for an October 6 release, according to its placeholder for the game.

According to the game’s description on the site (thanks, woe):

Everything changed with the arrival of Voyageur. It was originally a Golden Age that allowed our civilization to establish itself in the solar system. But it could not last. Something we put ashore broke. The survivors built a city in the Voyageur before returning explore our ancient worlds where only mortal enemies awaited them.

You are a Guardian, protector of last haven of life on Earth, armed with incredible powers. You must defend the city. Defeat our enemies. And look what we have lost. Be strong.

Like the leaked GameStop poster revealed earlier today, the game features a “unique scenario in a connected world, full of action and adventure,” and the game is described as “a shooter that redefines the genre and breaks with the conventions campaigns solo and competitive multiplayer modes cooperative and combines your social networks.”

Formats other than Xbox 360 and PS3 were not listed on the site, at least from what we could find.

Destiny is expected to be revealed through its official website on Sunday, so until then, just keep in mind that none of this is official.

    Oh hell no. If this isn’t a next gen release it’ll be a huge letdown.

    @Hcw87 I think its cross platform.

    Woe is right – at least if you read between the lines of the agreement w/ Activision.

    Well, if it’s crossplatform it can’t really release on current consoles. Which is weird, since there’s no way we’ll get the next gen consoles as early as October.

    I hope this game has a deep story to it. I’m so sick of multiplayer games it’s not even funny.

    Wrong company. This is Bungie. This entire games focus will be the MMOish type gameplay.
