Bungie's mysterious "Superintendent" returns


1:40 PM on 09.21.2008
Bungie's mysterious



Remember the new game that Bungie was set to announce at E3 before Microsoft pulled the plug? Well, it looks like they're gearing back up, as a new and cryptic message from the "Superintendent" has appeared on Bungie's site.

Very little can be gleaned from the image above and its accompanying text, which consists of a conversation log. It appears as though the "Superintendent" is some sort of artificial intelligence, associated with the USNC and running into a bit of trouble. If the multi-language text that has continually appeared in images and the schizoid rambling in its message are anything to go on, it needs a reboot pretty badly.

Now, since the UNSC is a Halo universe organization, should we take that to imply that this new title will be connected to that series? Adding to the likelihood is a comment by Don Mattrick that the company is working on a Halo game and the announcement by Microsoft that four titles in the franchise are currently in development.

The whole thing smacks of the ilovebees compaign for Halo 2 and it's making me very curious as to what they have on the horizon (mission accomplished, Bungie). You can see the complete posting after the jump.
