First installment from Bungie to be 360 exclusive

Four game plan for Activision published project

Documents regarding the deal that Activision made with developer Bungie has come to light as a result of the ongoing court battle with Jason West and Vince Zampella.

According to these documents the project for the “sci-fantasy action shooter” called Destiny has a pretty detailed plan. What is surprising is that the news that Bungie would be going multi-platform in the future will not apparently apply to the first release which will apparently be an Xbox 360 or Xbox Next exclusive. Versions for other systems would follow one year later.

In addition to the four games that are included in the deal, Activision will also be getting four DLC expansion packs which are known as codename Coment, that are part of the deal. The first release will be in the Fall of 2013 with the follow up releases in 2015, 2017, and 2019. The Expansion DLC would arrive in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.

One interesting note is that if Bungie fails to deliver, Activision can take over the Destiny property and it also stipulates that Bungie can’t start on more Destiny projects and Bungie has completed its work. Also of note is that the contract give Bungie the freedom to put as much as 5% of its staff to working a prototype game that is referred to as Project Marathon, and the size can increase as certain income levels are achieved.

Halo fans might be interested in knowing that the contract also puts restrictions on how many employees can work on Bungie.Net, Halo Reach DLC, and other projects outside of everything else.
