Bungie Undecided on Lead Console for New IP
Computer and Video Games talked to Bungie Community Lead Brian Jarrard about the company’s new IP they’re making for Activision to publish, and Jarrard told CVG they haven’t decided yet if they’re going to lead development on the multi-platform title with the Xbox 360 or another console.
“It’s a little bit too early for us to say which console we’ll lead on,” Jarrard told CVG. “We’re going to exactly figure out what’s the right way to lead into our new universe and what’s the right way to extend it. It’s too early for me to say which console is going to be the first out of the gate.”
This bit of news sounds more interesting than it probably is. I see two lines of thought here: that they would go with the Xbox since they’ve already been developing on that for years and they’ve gotten in a groove with; or that they go with the Playstation as an attention-grabbing move to try to keep folks talking for a while. But the latter is not very practical thinking. Or maybe they they secretly hate the Xbox and would go with the PS3 for that reason. I’m just making things up at this point, so let’s just wait and see.
