Destiny is a multiplayer computer game made in the form of a first-person shooter. It was released in 2014 for several platforms at once: PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One. Its developers are Bungie (the main creator), High Moon Studios, and Radical Entertainment. And the company released the game Activision.
Meaning and History
What is Destiny?
Destiny ranks as one of the most influential games of the 2010s. This is a first-person shooter, which is tied to a sci-fi story: players must defend the last safe city on the planet from space invaders.
The video game logo appeared simultaneously with its release. The authors have not officially explained what the original sign means, so users interpret symbols differently, putting forward several theories.
The logo was named Tricorn because of the number of “horns” – it has three of them. According to one hypothesis, it can relate to one of the elements of the game (plot, heroes, facts), designate a class (Titan, Worlock, Hunter) or race (Awoken, Human, Exo).
What does the Destiny logo mean?
The series logo contains its name and emblem known as Tricorn. Destiny hasn’t provided an official explanation for what this symbol stands for. Perhaps it is associated with some element of the game, representing individual characters or an entire race.
According to other assumptions, the logo represents a pack of three wolves, and the central element is Traveler. Inveterate gamers believe that it depicts a humanoid who raised his hands in greeting to the Traveler.
Font and Color of the Emblem
What is the Destiny 2 logo?
The logo for the second part consists of the “Destiny” lettering, which is written in thin black sans serif letters. To the right of it is the Tricorn symbol, and in the background, there is a large gray number “2,” indicating the order of play in the series.
What is the Destiny tricorn?
Tricorn is a bold “Y” with rounded sides. Between the upper “horns,” there is a vertical oval that resembles a computer mouse wheel.
As already noted, there are several hypotheses on the origin of the game label and what is drawn on it. One of the most popular and probable explanations: this is the muzzle or the stripped-down wolf track. According to many Destiny fans, he is depicted on the emblem because, in a computer game, there are many references to the fact that these animals are guardians.
Wolf motifs can be seen on the armor and the Iron Banner. As a confirmation of the hypothesis of the presence of the wolf on the logo, it is the nickname that the Traveler received. In Grimoire, he is called Alpha Lupi (Prime Wolf).
Most gamers believe that the meaning behind the brand name is inspired by part of the Master Chief costume. Even if this seems like a joke, the obvious similarities cannot be denied. It is also a direct link to the main character, emphasizing his high spirituality and great destiny since the logo resembles a man in a hoodie with hands raised to the sky.
The text part of the logo contains a single word – “Destiny.” The letters are large and distant from each other. The font is simple, sans serif, in uppercase. All characters are proportionally distributed along the length, so the middle is “T,” which hangs like a cross over a graphic element. The color palette is minimalistic and contains muted tones of gray, white, and black.
