Big multimedia 'universes' seem to be all the rage in the entertainment industry these days.

Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a smash hit, every big property needs to get a heap of additional media.

Bungie's sci-fi shooter epic Destiny is no different, and the company is looking for someone to make it all happen.

According to a new job listing, Bungie is looking to hire a "Senior Executive, Development (Film, TV, Transmedia)".

The role will be to "drive projects that extend the Destiny franchise into new categories including TV, films, books, comics and audio formats."

In a cheeky reference, the job listing even refers to this executive-to-be as the 'guardian' of the IP.

While turning everything into a universe seems like a gimmicky trend, Destiny is definitely one property that could benefit.

It is clear that the Destiny IP is in a healthy place right now, financially speaking.

Bungie also more than doubled the size of its Washington headquarters.

There's also a brand new IP in the works behind closed doors.
