Not many of you guys know this but, in Halo 3: ODST, there was a reference to Destiny. On a wall was a sign that read "Destiny Awaits", and showed a picture of floating orb next to a picture of a Earth. Though several vague statements by Bungie employees in interviews and presentations from 2010 through 2011 were interpreted to be Destiny references, the next overt references to Destiny were not shown until Bungie's August 2011 20th anniversary documentary, O Brave New World, in which appeared several early environment renders, an environment editor named "Grognok", and a brief shot of actors performing a scene with motion capture equipment. At that time, the game was still known by its original code nam Project Tiger, a term used by Bungie co-founder Jason Jones when discussing the game in August 2011. The game later became known by its working title Destiny.

Thanks to Extinct Extinct fro the pic!

I remember that info from forever ago. Just forgot about it. That's the problem with finding hints in games, then waiting years for them to come true lol

This is very old. Yes they were working on Destiny after Halo 3 was released.

I remember when people were talking about this. Shortly after Bungie started teasing Destiny. Nobody even knew what it was or anything.

It has been so long since I've played Halo 3: ODST that even if I ever saw that in the game, I don't remember.:tongue:
Great find, M Mammoth !

Off topic, but I noticed a striking resemblance with our avatars, and felt the need state it.
