In a strategic move, Bungie has come under PlayStation’s stewardship, and Sony already harbors plans to broaden the influence of the ‘Destiny’ franchise.
It has been well-known that efforts are underway to transition the franchise into various media forms, igniting fans’ anticipation for potential ‘Destiny’ movie or series adaptations.
A pivotal step towards realizing this goal has been the recruitment of a prominent former executive from Warner Bros. Discovery. Gabriel VanHuss now shoulders the responsibility of steering ‘Destiny’ into domains beyond video gaming.

VanHuss appears enthusiastic about this venture, expressing his confidence in the series’ potential to make a significant impact in the entertainment sector.
“I am thrilled to have recently assumed the role of Head of Linear Media for the Destiny franchise at Bungie.
