Bungie is looking for a new senior executive to help bring Destiny’s story to the world of TV, film and more.
“Reporting to the Destiny Universe Executive Creative Director, you’ll drive projects that extend the Destiny franchise into new categories including TV, films, books, comics and audio formats. As a storyteller and “guardian” of the Destiny IP, you will identify, select, guide, collaborate, and provide feedback to third parties and partners enabling them to tell additional myths in the Destiny universe that delight our fans while capturing the hearts and minds of new audiences.”
Bungie seems open to multiple options to expand the franchise. Because of this, they want some experience with films and series, both animation and scripted television. This might be a subtle hint for an animated series.
Destiny is already a well-known product to a large audience, so fans who get to see the story through a different format will fear that this is not being done correctly. That’s exactly why Bungie wants to find someone who is deeply rooted in the Destiny universe. So ideally one should not only have experience in the trade, but also have played hundreds of hours of Destiny.
We’ll definitely hear more from Bungie soon.
