The long-in-development Destiny project from Halo developer Bungie will be showcased at the Game Developers Conference later this year, as the studio will hold a special presentation that shows just how the team managed to create the rich world that will support its next few games.

Bungie is mostly known for creating the hugely successful Halo franchise, but the studio is currently focusing on its next big intellectual property, codenamed Destiny.

While quite a few details and even images have leaked, Bungie is still keeping a tight lid on the whole project.

More details will be showcased at the Game Developers Conference of 2013, as the website of the convention has just confirmed that Bungie will hold a special presentation that details just how the world of Destiny was created.

"Two decades of success in the gaming industry is no small feat, but after ten years of Halo, Bungie found themselves faced with a tremendous challenge: to build a whole new world, filled with even more amazing mysteries, places, creatures, and opportunities for player investment," the event's description reads.

"For the first time ever, Bungie creative directors will discuss their world building techniques, from concept to production. Attendees will walk away with key insights into Bungie's battle-tested design process. They'll get a glimpse of the brave new world that has been built, a place where the next ten years of great Bungie adventures will unfold."

Quite a lot of concept art and design case studies will be showcased during the presentation and Bungie will talk about the pillars it respected while creating the world and how it resulted in a great new experience.

As you can imagine, the presentation is only for developers that are going to GDC in San Francisco between March 25 and March 29, but you can expect plenty of details to be made public soon after that.
