Bungie – No Plans for Other Platforms at this Time

bungie logo Bungie’s recent independence from Microsoft has had little if no negative side effects in the realm of developing games for the giant. According to a recent interview with Jonty Barnes, Bungie still has no plans to work on any other platforms other than the Xbox 360 for the present. Considering the fact that Microsoft has been really good to Bungie (read: lining their pockets with Halo gold) Barnes had this to say:”We’re really focused on continuing our collaboration in making the best games we can, and that right now is on 360,” he said. He also indicated that while the have no future plans to work on any XBL Arcade titles, they’ll “never say never.”

In response to criticism regarding the cost of downloadable content for Halo 3, Bungie’s Frank O’Connor noted that it was Microsoft who set the price, not Bungie. “It is an expensive business with most of the Bungie team being involved at one stage or another, so I’m not surprised Microsoft is trying to recoup its costs,” he said. “The maps will be free in just a few months, so the patient can simply wait it out.”

O’Connor also mentioned that there are at least two Easter Eggs on ‘Stand Off,’ and also said that Forge will “certainly contain toys unavailable before. One of those will be revealed on Spike TV this Sunday.”

Which means they’re working on something.

Think about it; they’ve said they’re not developing for another platform. Fine, but why would they say that unless they were doing something that could be put onto another platform?

because the interviewer was asking stupid questions.

sure they are developing something, they’re a game making company, if they’re not working they’re not moving money, and if they’re not moving money, they’re not making money, and if they ain’t makin’ money they ain’t a game makin’ company.

If Bungie weren’t working on something, I’d be worried.
