Bungie Is Hiring to Turn Destiny Into TV Shows, Movies, and More

Bungie is hiring for a new senior executive who will help to bring Destiny's narrative from video games across to the world of TV, film, and more.

A career listing on Bungie's website for a new senior executive development role at the studio says that the successful candidate will "drive projects that extend the Destiny franchise into new categories including TV, films, books, comics, and audio formats."

Bungie itself doesn't appear to be hiring for positions to create the new range of Destiny products in-house. Instead, the new executive's role will be to "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."

In terms of the expansion, it would seem that Bungie is open to exploring a number of different avenues. As a requirement, the new executive will need to have been credited on a number of films/series with "experience in animation, scripted television development or current programming," also listed. Bungie also notes that additional credit may be awarded to a suitable candidate with experience in fictional novel and graphic novel publishing.

Although Bungie hasn't confirmed any details surrounding Destiny's potential expansion as a television series, the listing seems to suggest that a move toward the format would take the form of an animated series as opposed to a live-action show.

With Destiny already a globally recognized franchise with an incredibly devoted community behind it, some fans may fear that a move to other formats under incorrect supervision could be detrimental to the game's lore and characters. With this in mind, it seems that Bungie is looking for someone already heavily invested within the Destiny Universe. On top of extensive multimedia experience, Bungie requires applicants to have a passion for the Destiny Universe and says that an ideal candidate will have spent hundreds of hours playing Destiny and exploring its world.

In other related news, Destiny 2 recently launched into its latest Season of the Lost update and announced details surrounding the game's upcoming Witch Queen expansion, which is due out February 22. As Bungie looks to take Destiny to new mediums, perhaps we'll see Savath√Ľn and her siblings make their debut elsewhere on other formats in the future.
