Bungie Implies They’re Working On An MMO
Currently in full swing down in Austin, GDC Online 2010 has already been the source of a million gasping blog posts. The lastest tidbit to raise our blood pressure comes from Bungie Creative Director Joe Staten. Fresh off the recent success of Halo: Reach, his appearance today included the following non-answer to a question about Bungie’s next project:
“Wouldn’t it be great if we could make a world that was always there for you? Wow. That would be great.”
No word on precisely what he meant, but it smacks of an obvious trial balloon. My guess is that they’re currently bouncing around several proposed IP, and this comment is an attempt to see how the public reacts to this particular suggestion. But set that aside, ignore for a moment the weird tendency in marketing to anthropomorphize the product, and let’s consider the question. Would it, in fact, be great? Obviously that depends on what it is. MMOs are really hit and miss. Even so, after spending the last few weeks awash in Halo: Reach, the answer is yes. It would be great.
For now, this is nothing more than a non-detailed non-statement about a possible, non-confirmed non-product, so you know what that means: Rampant, unfounded speculation! Share yours in comments.
