New Bungie project?

So what do most of you think about this news that the new bungie project is a GRAW-like shooter based in the halo universe? (remember gamespot and ign confirm but they do not name the source so it is still speculation)

Its sounds exciting but i guess i would also like bungie to go back to the marathon or create a new universe kind of thing.

Don Mattrick has confirmed that Bungie are working on a new Halo game however. I hate the way he didn't let the announcement be made and thought avatars were a better think to show during their press conference. They could easily just have shown avatars on the show floor and they would have got the attention they needed.

I would like to actually see them make that GRAW-like Halo game. I've heard of it also and I think it would be a great idea.

I believe the odds are good that this game will be a strategic team based shooter....

Its either going to be a squad shooter were you play as a marine, master cheif escaping the planet he lands on or a prequal of sorts. Either way i don't mind, i love the halo series, despite gameplay being a little samey its so fun. As long as there is co-op im happy :) lol

I was hoping they'd make a Marathon game, and that MS would not be the publisher. I don't think I'm going to get either of those.

Yeh, I mean I felt gameplay in Halo 3 was too similiar to that of Halo 2, there was so much of a gameplay leep from Halo:CE to Halo 2 that i felt Halo 3 was just a graphical update. I would like to see bungie work with cover mechanics and deeper strategy.

I love the idea. Imagine a single elite actually being a real threat to you, just on his own. That sounds really exciting to me.

If it is like GRAW, I probably won't buy it. As long as it is completely first person, it should be pretty good. I expect a great game.

Oh and also, on the Bungie forums, there is tons of theories and the best one I have read is that it will be a new Marathon game with Master Chief.

I'll be excited for whatever they're working on.  I've also heard it could be Phoenix, which was canned during Halo 2.

Yeah thats a really good idea, it would put the battles in perspective compared to being a super human dude in a suit who can just kill anything quite easily, the Brutes would be an immense pain in the butt. Maybe Vehicle combat will feature more as well.

I've never heard that b4 I'd enjoy something like that... I also wouldn't mind another Marathon game. But I can't wait for the "Bungie Event" they pulled out of E3 for...

I expect we might learn more at PAX -- several of Bungie's Weekly Updates on their site have confirmed that they will be attending, so maybe we'll get some new information.

I hope the new game is squad-based, but I hope it stays First-Person. Also, I hope it is set in a time frame before the events of Halo: CE, so that we can hopefully have the H1 Pistol back in multiplayer.

Its all but confirmed that its is a third person squad based action game. Where you plays as the ODST marines in humanity's first battles with the covenant.

Same here.  I'd like an RPG similar to KOTOR, set in the halo universe.

Nothing is confirmed but I expected Bungie to venture into a squad based shooter, if they can tie it into the Halo universe, better for everyone.

No, and will never happen. The Halo universe is separate from the Marathon universe

OR SO THEY SAY!

Well I didn't really like GRAW but it still sounds like a third person squad based game could work.
