Bungie Makes It Official

Since real Bungie fans don't trust a word that is said about the Halo franchise, or indeed any Bungie game, unless it comes straight from Bungie, KP has now posted at Bungie.net to give the official imprimatur to the heretofore scurrilous rumors spread in Spain by Peter Moore and Peter Jackson.

To wit:

  • Ensemble Studios is making Halo Wars, an RTS game for the Xbox 360.
  • Wingnut Interactive is working with Bungie on an as-yet unrevealed Halo project.

The latter is being referred to as a "new chapter" in the Halo series; no doubt this prevents any conflict with the idea that Halo 3 will be the "end" of the Halo story, as it will only end that particular story arc. Where or when these new games take place isn't yet known.

In addition to the projects mentioned above, Wingnut is also working on original intellectual property.
