The game was originally called "Project Tiger" and "Destiny" was actually the game's working title, but the creators liked it so much they kept it as the official title.
Mostly all of the of the story line was cut after Joseph Staten's departure. There was also an extension of the tower, called the city, that was completely removed, which contained additional vendors. The entrance to The City is to believed to be by the outfitter (the vex gate where you would commonly find XUR). The actors who voiced The City's vendors are still credited.
On Friday and Saturday you can find Xur, a vendor who takes strange coins, in a random place In the tower. Strange coins are givin randomly while playing the game.Quotes
Ghost: This path should lead us straight to the grave.[pause]Ghost: The World's Grave. Not ours.
The Speaker: The stories tell of a golden age long ago, when our civilization spanned the system. It was a bright and hopeful time. But it didn't last. Something hit us. Knocked us down and tried to stamp us out. No one knows exactly what, but we do know this: very few of us survived, and those that did owe their lives to the The Traveler. Legends say The Traveler sacrificed itself to save us. The mysterious sphere still hangs where it made its last stand, low above the Earth, keeping silent watch. The years that followed the collapse of the golden age were hard, but slowly we joined together to build a city beneath The Traveler. And now we've begun to venture back into the wild, only to find that we're not alone. Strange and deadly creatures have occupied our old worlds. And they're pressing hard against The City, probing for a weakness, trying to stamp us out for good. Your story begins at this moment of great adventure and peril. You are a Guardian of The City; a soldier able to wield some of The Traveler's incredible power. If you can find a way to save The City - to reclaim all that we have lost - you will become legend. If you fail, the last light of civilization will go out!
Ghost: So... Think you can kill a god? Player: Don't think I have a choice.Easter Eggs
On the left side of the Tower Hub, you can find a football next to a pile of crates that are stacked under a staircase.
Bungie may have left the Halo series behind, but they certainly haven't forgotten their legacy. Astute players exploring on the planet Mars may find a tower that, when looked upon from the correct angle, resembles the Master Chief's helmet.
In The Tower, you can jump on top of the Postmaster's hut and stand on large fan. Meanwhile, have a friend run to the staircase just to the right of the hut (facing out, towards the city) and he or she can hit a button that will activate the fan
