Destiny screenshots emerge from Gamescom

Shooter MMO due in 2014

Bungie and Activision have released a series of screenshots for their forthcoming shooter MMO Destiny.

Destiny is on display at Gamescom, following a huge showing at E3 2013. The open-world, co-op oriented shooter will release for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2014.

Bungie technical director Chris Butcher told Edge earlier this month that the studio wants to "make sure the social experience is one where if the players aren't co-operating or communicating effectively it doesn't ruin anyone's experience."

Activision publishing boss Eric Hirshberg believes Destiny has the potential to become Activision's third billion dollar franchise.
