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.

Harold Ryan

Microsoft isn't planning to bring more Halo games to Steam

Even though Microsoft says it has a "renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming" internally, we've been hearing that sentiment for a while and little if anything has come to fruition yet. It'd be unexpected for the company to bri...more

The real life version of the Halo sword kind of sucks

Master arms maker Man at Arms is back, this time taking on the Halo Elite energy sword. The concept looks cool in the game, but it kind of sucks in real life as it's not really practical. Look at how floppy it is! It will still cut a fool, you just got to wiggle it around a little to really get in deep. It'll look cool mounted on a wall or something at least. more
