Quartermann: First Info on Bungie's Next Halo? Plus Rockstar's Future Games

After shipping last fall's blockbusting Halo 3, revered developer Bungie stunned the world by announcing plans to liberate itself from Microsoft's ownership. Allegedly, that path to freedom requires that they develop a few more titles for Microsoft, and 1UP has heard rumblings that the first one will be a Halo spin-off due in late 2009. 1UP's spies tell to expect a third-person action/adventure shooter hybrid that takes place before the original Halo, chronicling early skirmishes between the ODST troops and the Covenant. This may or may not be the oft-mentioned "Peter Jackson Halo Project" -- though apparently Microsoft is hiring a seperate team for that -- but WETA is definitely involved in some capacity. Look for a massive reveal around the time Gears of War 2 ships this fall...

Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Revolver 2 are headed to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as is the previously PS3-only gumshoe adventure L.A. Noire. Also, a massively multiplayer extension of the GTA universe is in the early stages of development.

"expect a third-person action/adventure shooter hybrid"

Why change what makes halo great...the gameplay. Whatever i guess...just as long as they give me a Halo 4: Multiplayer Edition.

ssj3858d ago

Hell yeah bring on Max Payne 3.

Ariexv3858d ago

Well so much for Sonys major R* exclusive LA Noire.

SUP3R3858d ago

Didn't know it was a major exclusive.

NDN_Shadow3858d ago

Well it's an exclusive to the Playstation 3, and it's by Rockstar. That obviously makes it a major exclusive. /sarcasm

DRUDOG3858d ago

This was rumored a few months back that Sony had pulled the funding because the game was shiite. Not surprising that it would go multi-plat if they continued development. It's not like R* are the actual devs on it, they are just publishing it. Who the hell knows if this is something major or not anyhow. All we've seen are a couple of early rendered screens that show nothing. And it's supposed to drop in '09?

Halo 3 sucked(ok, it was average),but I still don't think we need another one.
