Bungie Aerospace, a mysterious thing the company has been registering websites and trademarks about for months now, is not Bungie's next game. It's about helping independent developers making mobile and social games, providing "creative freedom," access to Bungie.net's tools and more.
The first partnership Bungie's disclosing is with Crimson from Harebrained Schemes. The studio's creative director is Jordan Weisman, the man behind the infamous "I Love Bees" alternate reality game. We don't know what the game is, but it's coming to iOS and Android this summer.
“Bungie has always been passionate about making and playing great games, regardless of platform,” said Bungie COO Pete Parsons in the announcement press release. “Bungie Aerospace will allow us to explore game creation in multiple formats with some amazingly talented teams. Now that we’ve returned to our roots as an independent studio, we are in a position to launch Bungie Aerospace to support, foster, and elevate like-minded, independent developers.”
