Microsoft Confirms That Bungie Is Developing New 'Halo'

MTV Multiplayer writes:

In an interview shot for MTV News on Tuesday, Microsoft's head of Xbox business Don Mattrick, confirmed to me that Bungie is indeed working on a new "Halo" game of some sort for Microsoft.

I had been asking Mattrick about the lack of "Halo" news at E3. He said that Microsoft's Monday press conference was already loaded with content and so any announcements for that series weren't needed to get gamers excited.

I pushed him on the lack of presence for the series and asked him if we should be worried about the no-show of Ensemble Studio's real-time-strategy game "Halo Wars." Not only did Mattrick say not to worry and that announcements would be coming, he also said that Microsoft is working with Bungie on a "Halo" game.

I asked for clarification, wondering if Mattrick meant Bungie's project was "Halo Wars" or the long-announced Peter Jackson "Halo" project. Neither, Mattrick said. The Bungie game is something else.

And then, not surprisingly, the topic was changed...

Maybe they're making Halo RPG for cell phones.

Just imagine the flood, thousands of disembodied lego heads chasing you.

Halo Legos I think would actually be a good idea. Kids and adults would love it.

What else would they be making. This is less surprising than EA announcing the next Madden title.

Sarcasticgamer.com called this weeks ago... Little late MTV... :(

seriously you think bungie was going to announce anything else? seriously, they were going to release all that Info today so that they can overshadow Sony's E3 conference, but bungie was not allowed to do so today, cause microsoft said so. I see what you did there microsoft. very funny. Funny if there arent big improvements from halo 3 to this game.

gaffyh5812d ago

Lol they could have announced a sequel to Oni (PS2). LMAO

himdeel5812d ago

...the BEST HALO evah in life and in death I will be pleased. I hope that it's so good it make all the other HALO games look and play like poo poo.

Halochampian5812d ago

real funny... but Bungie doesn't have rights to Oni.

Panthers5811d ago

Ha I still have Oni. It was fun but hard.

Anyone who watched the credits knows it doesn't end MC's story. It ends the MC/Covenant/Flood (maybe not the flood) story arc.

MC is still very clearly alive, and still stuck in the middle of nowhere on ??? planet. It's very possible they are going to tie halo into marathon, which wouldn't really be a horrible thing.

Also, it could be a non-MC related halo title. more like a front lines shooter as opposed to MC, who was mostly special ops in the games.

Or it could be anything from the books. There is a lot of story left in the halo universe that could be made.

Personally, I think a halo themed combat racer would be sweet. of course it wouldn't fit into the story at all, but it would be fun...
