"Silentassasin5k said:bungie also did the MYTH games, which I believe there were two of."Technically this is the seventh Halo game if you count Marathon 1, 2, 3, ONI, Halo 1, 2, and 3. I want to see a new marathon game from them. We all can dream.You mean seventh bungie game?
Bungie has been feeding the rumour for MONTH's that they are working on a "unspecified project" leading many people to wonder about what it is and if they don't get to know what happened after Halo 3.
They where supposed to announce "something" at E3 which they angerly stated on their site that Microsoft blew off at the last minute. Now a Microsoft rep slipped that it IS IN FACT a Halo game. The blood must be boiling for the devs at Bungie studios atm, hilarious!
"Not surprised that they working on another Halo game considering how much each game sell. It's all about the money.
I agree, this is why I hate MS. Just let these amazing developers do something else already, not the same shit that has gotten boring, and I am sure if it was up to Bungie they would not be making another one.
LOL - I'm in Sweden and I can see it fine.
Anywho no one is "forcing" Bungie to do anything. They broke with Microsoft because they wanted to do whatever they wanted. Now this is their first game as an independent studio, so they probably wanted to spend all the huge amounts of time and money that they are devouting to development on something they know they can make their own and still sell well.
They probably have a new vision/direction for what Halo is, and as a not "wholly Microsoft owned" studio now they can create that vision while at the same time have a safe bet at success because it is still a Halo game. This new game is surely to set the new focus, vision and gameplay of the next Halo trilogy. And based on 3's and this games success they will probably expand and set up an additional Bungie studio, which will develop a new IP simulatiously with the other. That is how it usually works.
How do you know MS is not forcing them to do another Halo? Honestly, MS would be insane not force them to do another, because they hype the shit out of it and it makes them big bucks, so I am sure they are putting input in to Bungi that we need another Halo from you guys.
"Not surprised that they working on another Halo game considering how much each game sell. It's all about the money.Exactly my thoughts. They are milking it. The perfect ending to Halo was when you see Master Chief talking to Lord whaterever, and they show them burying the bodies of Johnson and the Commander. Now they want to put another ending in people's minds. lol
