When developing Destiny, Bungie said it took some inspiration from other open-world shooters such as Borderlands and Far Cry, by looking at the things it felt the developers did right, and the opportunities the teams may have missed.

Bungie’s shared-worlds shooter Destiny was partially inspired by TV shows like Battlestar Galactica, Lost and even The Wire.

The bar’s been raised. Pistols are good to go at half-dawn. Bungie is ready to make sure its new IP that will be published by Activision will be “even better than Halo.

Bungie writer Joseph Staten has said to OXM (via CVG) that Halo 3: ODST has connections to the upcoming Halo: Reach.
“The Halo Universe has always had these interconnections but when we made ODST we had the luxury of knowing the Halo game we were going to make next. So it made a lot of sense to us to put those kind of connections in,” said Staten.
He also admitted that although ODST character Buck is a vet of the events on Reach, he isn’t sure if he will appear in the next Halo title.
“Buck has very specific lines about what he witnessed on planet Reach and we absolutely wanted to telegraph some of that stuff. Whether or not he’s going to show up in Halo Reach we’re not talking about / have no idea.”

During the Halo 3: ODST panel at PAX, Bungie’s Joe Staten revealed that Fourth Wall Studios are developing a meta-game for Halo 3: ODST called “Sadie’s Story.”
Created by artist Ashley Wood and former members of 42 Entertainment, which created the “ilovebees” campaign for Halo 2, Fourth Wall’s meta-game tells the story of New Mombasa after the Covenant attack, but before the ODST arrived on the scene.
The story will follow the exploits of a New Mombasa resident named Sadie, which serves as a companion to the main narrative, which Bungie’s Marty O’Donnell compared to a radio play.
Not much else was revealed, other than some art from Sadie’s Story, including the “security camera footage” pictured above.
Sounds interesting at least.
More over on Joystiq.

Halo 3 creative director Joe Staten revealed to IGN yesterday that Halo 3: ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) is “done.”
Hopefully that means the September 22 release date will stick and perhaps a demo might be in the offing, although Bungie traditionally, don’t ‘do’ demos.
