Bungie hiring for Destiny TV show, film and more

Washington studio hopes for a golden age for its IP in transmedia

Game developer Bungie is hiring for someone to oversee its Destiny IP in other mediums.

As spotted by The Game Post, the studio has posted a job ad for a senior executive for its development team, specifically focused on film, TV and transmedia. In other words, anything regarding Destiny that isn’t a video game, seemingly.

“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,” the ad reads.

“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 being able to pursue non-video game Destiny projects follows the studio buying the publishing rights for the online sci-fi shooter from Activision Blizzard in 2019. At the start of 2020, the developer hinted that it might make a television show based on the property.

Destiny made its debut in 2014, before a sequel – Destiny 2 – launched in 2017.
