E3 08: Bungie's new game announcement put on hold

Have you been "keeping it clean?" Are you dying to know what the "TRU7H" is? Looks like you're going to have to keep on waiting a while longer.

Bungie's home page has been updated with a message from company president  Harold Ryan which states that, while they had intended to announce a new game at E3, their publisher has other ideas and no announcement will be made at this time. All of this comes after months of people scouring Bungie's site, looking for appearances of a mysterious logo referred to as the "superintendent". Bungie themselves had placed a new splash page teasing the announcement on Monday.

It's interesting to note that the publisher in question has yet to be named. I think many assumed it would be Microsoft Game Studios and that's still a safe bet, especially considering the glut of press information they delivered yesterday. Then again, there are murmurs that EA might be distributing the new project. All a bit mysterious, don't you think?

Full text of Harold Ryan's apology message to Bungie fans follows the jump.

Subject: E3 Announce

For the last several months, we've been building toward a reveal of something exciting that Bungie is working on. We were looking forward to sharing that with our fan community during the week of E3. However, those plans were just changed by our publisher.

We realize that many of our fans are disappointed by this turn of events; members of the Bungie team share that disappointment.

When the right time comes, we look forward to sharing this exciting announcement with you. Until then, we appreciate your continued support and patience.

If Bungie envisions Destiny as an MMO, it should start acting like it

Destiny was a functional game at launch, but a number of design choices were made that left all of us scratching our heads. The Cryptarch system in 1.0 was horrible in that it allowed players to earn legendary engrams (r...more
