In an interview with Gamesindustry International, Bungie COO Pete Parsons has revealed that he feels Destiny will not only surpass Halo, but will also eventually be comparable to some big name entertainment franchises.
"We like to tell big stories and we want people to put the Destiny universe on the same shelf they put Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or Star Wars; we've already seen they do that with Halo," said Parsons.
"We were extremely proud of what we achieved with Halo... I'm pretty convinced we are going to do it again with Destiny in a way that maybe even Halo never achieved before."
