The Studio won't be though, as they pledge to keep Halo: Reach where their "public focus lies" this year. Bungie do hint a "multiplatform universe".
"I don't know where that's come from. I can tell you we're definitely not showing the game at E3," said Bungie community boss Brian Jarrard, referring to claims they'll be announcing their new project with Activision at this year's E3, reports Edge.
"It's definitely our intent to make this announcement and return to business as usual and know that we don't have to worry about our future any more." 10 years is how long the deal between Bungie and Activision will stand with the developer retaining rights to their new created IP, as I'm sure they want to avoid any Infinity Ward like scenarios.
"We definitely want to focus on Halo Reach," added Jarrard.
"We have a lot of work to go, and we have the game to get out the door and to support, so you won't be hearing anything about this project this year. It's going to be all Reach for us in terms of where our public focus lies." PS3 development is likely in their future.
"...fortunately we have some of the best engineering talent in the industry, but it definitely helps us knowing that Activision is a partner and has a lot of resources and expertise that can help us evaluate and plan for a what multiplatform universe could look like."
"We’re excited about the prospect of what that means but I’d be lying if some of the guys aren’t a little bit terrified as well. We’re very comfortable and have intimately come to know the Xbox over the last decade and I think the team loves to tackle new challenges and opportunities, but it definitely will be a new step for us," he continued.
There you have it videogamer, the only thing from Bungie this E3 will be Microsoft screaming Halo: Reach from the top of the LA Convention Center. Do you hope the Halo creator branches out and tries its luck on the PlayStation 3?
