Working from a new home base in a converted movie theater, the developers of Bungie are toiling away on their next video game, one that will have nothing to do with the franchise that put them on the map.
Bungie's waning involvement in "Halo" and with Microsoft is little known outside the industry. Microsoft would like to keep it that way.
"343 Industries is doing a phenomenal job and continues to shepherd that franchise in a fantastic way that the gamers are going to be excited about," said Unangst, the Microsoft director. "The same people are running the franchise. That hasn't changed at all."
