Bungie's Parsons Talks Halo, Destiny With VentureBeat

VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi has interviewed Bungie COO Pete Parsons about his role with the Halo and Destiny franchises originated by Bungie. Quite a few interesting tidbits in there, but perhaps the most interesting one reaffirms the origins of the idea behind the new IP:

Destiny is very much a product of everybody at Bungie, but its inception comes from Jason [Jones, co-founder of Bungie]. This is very much a vision that Jason has. Then, he gathers a small group of really talented people who have been here a long time, and they begin hammering on it. It's had multiple incarnations until it finally landed into what it is today. That's fun to watch. Not just on technology, but art and story. [...] As naive as this may sound, if Jason believes in something and he's ready to go for it, I'm in.
