Continuing the discussion on the Bombcast over the Activision lay offs and their business model I present the evidence of their next big thing:
Clearly everyone has heard that Activision owns the rights to publish Bungie's new IP for the next ten years, but up until now we have had no clue what that new IP would be. According to a rumor story on Kotaku from this morning the new IP (known as Destiny) will be a MMO-FPS (Massively Multiplayer Online First Person Shooter). Which if Bobby Kotick's ideas of subscriptionizing COD is anything to go off of, Destiny will be a subscription based game.
Whether this is a good thing or bad thing is a different story, but what this shows is that Activision is likely going to stick to the same business it has in the past: find something hott, get it, and make $. However, because Bungie owns the rights to the IP a situation like Infinity Ward won't happen, which is some good news.
