New Bungie series 'enters the next console cycle'

Bungie's new game series will stretch into the next generation of consoles, the studio has said.

Community director Brian Jarrard revealed to Develop that the studio is going through "technological discussions" about the future of the unknown franchise.

Jararrd had confirmed that the deal covers a single IP; a new franchise that is expected to survive ten years of shifting consumer tastes.

"This new IP deal stretches into the next generation of consoles as well as the current ones," said Jarrard. "I think it's safe to assume that."

ill all honesty i think bungie is going to make a halo game with a differant name. the same engein and everything. i think it would be better if it were ps3 exclusive to maximize power from the cell, but if it is not(most likely, who gives a crap? im sure it will be a great game. expects dissagrees.

It's going to be an MMO mark my words..

Bungie "Crazy, Ambitious, Grandiose" next game, " Acti is best for are next game" ( Blizzard in house they know mmo )
Patcher the re re - " Long in Development" "sell like hot cakes"
Sony ' Halo on steroids"

Right or wrong, they have something big in mind. Something they have been dying to do but Micro wouldn't see to it, with them focused on Halo so much. Bungie are responsible for one of the biggest franchises in the history of gaming, accident or not, and they're talking like this. I may be wrong, but expect a Megaton new IP.

Nah. Bungie wants to go multiplatform to make money. They won't waste time with being PS3 exclusive and neither will Activision. That's small potatoes.

bungie, you will enjoy it better and never leave making games for this console

"I never thought the ps3 had so much great hardware" will be a quote from a bungie developer

Sony spokesperson Patrick Seybold wrote on Twitter this afternoon:

'Congrats to Bungie. Marrying their creative minds and incredible talent to the power of PS3 will be like giving PS3 fans Halo on steroids.'

Hmmm, Sony hyping up a Halo for the PS3? WOW..such insecurity. Don't they already have KZ2? Why would they care about having anything like Halo???

Playstation_Clan, do u see how stupid this comment is? Now look at yours, its just as stupid. What r u a fortuneteller? Wadda u know what Bungie will say of the PS3??

Just as I don't know that this quote was said out of insecurity on Sony's part to want a "Halo-like" shooter on the PS3, YOU don't know what Bungie will think of the PS3.

suunyd- I'm not angry at this announcement at all, I'm just frustrated that people who use electronics as a method of hating on another person are breathing the same air as I am.

Bungie are on the "multiplatform side". They want money, not the misguided fickle friendship gestures of silly people who pointlessly choose sides in a console war.

Id never thought I see Bungie developing on a playstation console. As long as this deal doesnt hinder the quality than Im all aboard the Bungie-Activision ride.
