Activision: Bungie Developing “Groundbreaking New Game Universe”
After finishing development on the currently unreleased, newest Halo title, Halo: Reach, Bungie is looking to the future. According to mega-publisher Activision, Bungie’s newest game is going to be kept under wraps for at least the rest of 2010.
During a recent investor call, Activision’s chief financial officer Thomas Tippl, laid the groundwork for Bungie’s continued collaboration with Activision, which bought out the once independent studio, just a few months ago.
“Our partnership with Bungie is an extraordinary addition to our franchise portfolio and a perfect example of the thoughtful approach we take to use our shareholders’ capital. Bungie’s in development on a groundbreaking new game universe, which also aligns well against the growth in online gaming. And today, we are happy to report that the majority of the Bungie team is settling in to its new space and is now focused on crafting their new universe.
“The new universe will be a substantial addition to our portfolio and an opportunity that should drive Activision’s growth well into the next decade.”
This certainly is great news for fans of the highly acclaimed studio, which has brought to the gaming world such franchises as Halo, Marathon and Myth. Stick with PlayStation LifeStyle, as we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest from Bungie’s latest title.
