New Bungie game code-named Tiger, logo confirmed

When Bungie signed a 10-year exclusive publishing deal with Activision in April 2010, the developer said it was working on an entirely new universe for multiple platforms. Since then, Bungie has confirmed the game will run on an all-new engine and likened it to a massively multiplayer title. Now, the developer has shed new light on the project, confirming it is currently in development under the working name "Tiger" and is related to a familiar logo.
The news stems from Bungie's 20th anniversary video titled "O Brave New World," which was released today and speaks about the developer's history and future. In addition to offering the code name for the project, the developers teased the new project further.
"You feel responsible for not just telling an isolated story, but for building a universe that at some point is going to become more the fans than it is ours," said a Bungie staffer. "It's going to take a life of its own."
Also during the video, Bungie offered new hints about the project, revealing what might be the first screenshot from the game. Pictured at right, the image shows a vast landscape with a metal-looking windmill in the foreground.
Lastly, Bungie concluded the video documentary with a familiar logo. It was first seen in May when dummy corporation Podophobia Entertainment filed a trademark for Destiny, rumored to be amassively multiplayer online first-person shooter, with the accompany logo (above). Adding to the veracity of the logo, Bungie staffer Johnathan Barnes was spotted wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the same logo at a Penny Arcade Event.
