Bungie's online shooter Destiny may find its way to the Wii U, PC, Vita and next-gen systems.

Halo creators Bungie recently let loose a deluge of details about its current project Destiny, a large-scale online shooter with more than a few hints of MMO in its makeup. In its initial unveiling Bungie confirmed that the game would be coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A subsequent discussion with Eurogamer confirmed that Bungie had interest in bringing Destiny to PC.

"We would absolutely love to be on the PC." Said Bungie COO Pete Parsons. "If you talk to the people upstairs, we play it on all platforms. So, stay tuned."

Despite this desire to see Destiny on every platform possible, no official lip service has been paid to the WiiU, the Vita, or any other assumed next-generation systems. That said, new evidence suggests that other platforms may in fact find themselves playing host to Destiny in the future. While Bungie's official pre-order page falls in line with its official announcements, the page's source code lists a whole bevy of platforms including the Wii U, Vita, PC, PS4 and Xbox 720.

This is in no way a confirmation. These bits of source code could be placeholders included just in case Bungie decides to announce new versions of Destiny down the road. That said, it's still heartening to see the Wii U, PC and Vita included. A Vita version especially would be a neat thing to see. One of the long-running grievances with Sony's handheld has been the lack of a quality first-person shooter to take advantage of its dual analog control scheme. A large-scale online shooter of the caliber that Destiny is aiming to be could be just what the doctor ordered.
