E3: A date with Bungie's Destiny

BBC News BBC News 13/06/2014 BBC

The games studio that launched the bestselling Halo franchise is hoping to emulate its success with Destiny.

Bungie's game combines the traditional first-person shooter genre with a massively multiplayer online (MMO) environment - the term given to titles that can support large numbers of people playing in the same landscape simultaneously.

Destiny is creating a lot of buzz among gamers who will get a chance to play a beta version of it later this summer.

But the big question is: will it prove as influential for the next-generation consoles as Halo did for the original Xbox?

The BBC's North America technology correspondent Richard Taylor spoke to Bungie's community manager David Dague about the game and its prospects.
