When was Destiny announced?

Destiny was announced on February 17, the seventh Sunday of the year, seven months after Bungie's One of Seven video was posted on YouTube, inexplicably featuring Marty O'Donnell on a climbing wall.

The announcement came in the form of a new ViDoc entitled "Paths Out Of Darkness" in reference to Bungie's pre-Marathon 3D game on the Macintosh, Pathways Into Darkness, loosely connected to the Marathon universe by its mention of the mysterious race, the Jjaro.

It is widely rumored that Destiny will discuss more about Destiny at GDC in March 2013, where Bungie's Joe Staten and Christopher Barrett will be leading a duscussion entitled "Brave New World: New Bungie IP".

The title of the talk is linked to Bungie's 2010 ViDoc, "O Brave New World". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtG6--4r_qk
