Three New Titles are in Development, says Bungie


Bungie have confirmed via their official website that they have three projects currently in the works.

"At the moment we do have three distinct projects underway within Bungie - some familiar, some not. Some on a closer horizon, some quite far off," they said.

One of these projects is the Halo project that was pulled from Microsoft's E3 line up at the last minute.

Bungie will be revealing some new Halo 3 Downloadable Content at this year's PAX in August; however they won't be making any announcement's regarding these projects for a while.

"For the record, we have no plans to make any big announcements or huge reveals at PAX this year.

"While we will have some Halo 3 multiplayer stuff for you to check out, this is not going to be the 'big announcement' many of our fans are clamouring for. Rest assured that when the time is right, we will be making announcements and talking about the stuff we're currently working on."

This is just Raw awesome. I hope to see something soon!

What ever happened to that Peter Moore/Halo Project?

#3 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Bungie is a great developer, glad they are moving on to non-Halo projects.

#4 Posted by Scorched (691 posts) -

Well I've already forgotten about halo so that won't be hard
I can't wait to see what bungie's new projects are though

Bungie is awesome, all games they make should be great.

LOL, you mean Peter Jackson? I wish Peter Moore was working on a Halo game with Bungie. It'd probably be the best game ever.
#7 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

Meh, I got over Halo so if Bungie does something new hopefully it lives up to the hype.

#8 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

Nice, Hopefully they announce them soon.

When I first read that my jaw dropped.  I knew they had been hinting at more than one project, but three at one time was a shock.  They've grown so much since Halo and I REALLY can't wait to see what else they can make now.  Part of me is hoping for a new RTS IP from them.

Maybe we'll get lucky and one of them will be Marathon

#11 Posted by ganjaman (100 posts) -

That is fantastic news.

#12 Posted by Nibbz (203 posts) -

that could be. a DS game. a PSP game. and a 360 game.

I believe they have an exclusive publishing deal with Microsoft.  Would that not stop them from making a DS or PSP game? Although I guess Rare did make some DS games...

I think the three are the rumored SWAT Halo project, the Peter Jackson Halo project, and maybe an XBLA game with that Superintendent character.

I would hope so. If EA made a Halo then I be scared.
#16 Posted by MsCortana (429 posts) -

Definitely good to hear we are getting some new downloadable content.  It does make me wonder just what it could be.  More maps?

#17 Posted by NinjaMunkey (204 posts) -

cool. It will be good to see them make something different. something with a little more serious art style would be nice.

#18 Posted by Nobility (295 posts) -

I assume one of those games would be multiplatform but it could be just Bungie trying to get back to its roots on the PC.  Nevertheless, I'm happy about this and I just want more games from them.

#19 Posted by mihaipitbull (25 posts) -

i bet at least one of those projects is related to halo because they still have some kind of deal with microsoft

#20 Posted by SonicFire (821 posts) -

I'm glad to see that Bungie has some non-Halo ideas; it would be an understatement to suggest that they've pigeonholed themselves into a one-franchise brand. Popular or not, that doesn't make for longevtiy

After the success of halo 1, In was only in their best interest to follow on with it.
Possibly apart of their break up with Microsoft, so they can take a step back and expand ideas.
#22 Posted by SlimDogg (159 posts) -

Still like Halo. But really glad to see them moving on. Can't wait to see what they do next.

Yeah. Probably would have an ad for AXE on a billboard, then you'd see a Grunt holding a Mountain Dew. Then the Grunt would yell "Mountain Dew helps satisfy my Grunty thirst!"

One of the projects has to be Marathon.

The Peter Moore/Halo Project
#29 Posted by MrRetep (81 posts) -

Should be pretty good

#30 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

They better not create an awesome game, then give it some crap ending like halo3's was.

#32 Posted by Thunder (390 posts) -

i hope all 3 of their games dont suck like Halo 3

#33 Posted by evilhomer (429 posts) -

A collector's pack for the first three Halo games, Im so right on this.

#34 Posted by pause422 (6170 posts) -

I don't think the title starting with "Forget Halo" is proper at all,most likely at least one of those projects is another Halo game.

#35 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

Are we sure it's not Halo 4, 5 and 6?

Seriously though... Even if they continue with a Halo project, I think they would like to move away from the franchise and create something new.

#36 Posted by pause422 (6170 posts) -

Bungie has already admitted that for sure,before even making Halo 3 they said they were getting burned out of the whole thing. So if one project is indeed a Halo project,the other 2 may be either new IP's or something different(some suspect marathon,but marathon for its time is alot like halo turned out today for the most part)

#37 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Halo MMO, Halo free roaming game, and Halo racing game.

Add that to the RTS and your good to go! XD

No seriously I hope they do something other than Halo, its getting really old.

#38 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

I'm glad they're working on something other than Halo as well

#39 Posted by chandlerr_360 (110 posts) -

Wow, this thread turned into a Halo hate thread...seriously, Halo deserves some props. I am sure at least one of these projects has to do with Halo. And, also, I don't know how many of you guys have seen THIS, but it could be a clue to Bungie's upcoming projects.

Halo is great and all, but there is a point where its just milking the series. And I really want Bungie to do something more then Halo, because I know they can. But they have gotten themselves stuck in a spot where MS would do anything in order to get another Halo title.

I mean just look at all the Halo stuff, Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo Wars (RTS), Halo Peter Jackson project(?), Halo books, Halo movie, and now a Halo MMO, or Halo 4? It's just too much, and Bungie is better then this.

There's not going to be a Halo 4, and there is not going to be a Halo MMO FFS. Halo has not been milked in any way shape or form. Now want to talk about Mario? Now Mario has been milked...

correct me if im wrong, but hardly any of the cortana letters made sense..........they seem to speak from her as a rampant AI, which, to my utter disappontment, she wasnt.

EDIT-Shit, I just saw that timer......man I love Bungie's viral marketing.

Lol, I was never saying they are confirmed, I was speaking in general, what could happen with Halo. MS has said they want to 'Explore' Halo, not 'Exploit' it, but really I see no difference if they are making a bunch of new Halo games it will be exploring and exploiting the franchise.

For you to say Halo has not been milked in any way is being way too closed minded. Do you not see a Halo RTS? A Halo movie? Books? The Halo 3 limited edition pack? That is a hell of a lot of money, and MS is not going to stop because they know its their most valuable franchise to date. They are milking it, I want them to let it go and let Bungie make something else, we all know they are great developers and they can do more then just Halo...

Mario? Milked? Lol, dude; Mario is a classic game, to say its being milked when each release is totally different from the last is just silly. Don't bring other games into a Halo discussion ffs. XD

Nintendo has sucked Mario so dry they started getting blood instead of milk out of his titties.

The ending wasn˚t terrible in my opinion, although I thought it was pretty stupid how *spoilers star here* the ship breaks in half conveniently so that arbiter lives and the chief is stuck in no where. Although if you beat it on legendary and see the forerunner planet, it˚s quite interesting. I honestly wouldn˚t mind another Halo game, knowing the care Bungie puts into they˚re games I wouldn˚t be to worried. Actually, we kinda know there is going to be some other Halo universe game, with that delayed announcement at Bnet.

LMAO. Did you play Galaxy? Didn't think so.

They aren't milking it if each game is a totally new concept, unlike Halo where the changes throughout the series have been minimal, ie 'milking' Halo. Bungie could do so much more but MS is holding them back.

Exactly, they should have "actually finished the fight" instead of milking master chief for even more.

And I thought that Bungie thought that they could ride off of Halo 3's success for the rest of their days.  :P  I'm actually interested in what else they can do besides Halo.  Of course I'm also interested in the Halo project.
