Bungie celebrates their 20th anniversary by releasing a open letter to fans. The developer says goodbye to their popular flagship series Halo, stating that it is in good hands with the players and by extension 343 Studios. Appreciating the fact that the players have remained dedicated to the long running franchise, they ask that players to remain faithful to the series — even with the new developers.
“Halo is yours now. In many ways, it always has been. Its new caretakers will strive, just as we did, to be worthy stewards but you have the package. Hold these characters and stories and worlds to the same unflinching standards you did while we were at the helm, but allow them all to blossom and change and grow in the ways that they must.”
Announcing release of a tribute video”O Brave New Worlds”, the studio teases that they will undergo a metamorphosis of their own, proclaiming Bungie.Net will change with their next project.
“Afterwards, we’ll be going dark on our studio’s next major endeavor – the creation of a brand new universe… So, this isn’t a goodbye. It isn’t The End. Instead, it’s the very beginning of a new journey that will stretch the limits of what we are capable of.”
The rumor mill has been churning out many hints to their next project, but Bungie has been tight lipped as to what it specifically is. Popular sources say that it’s Project Destiny: a sci-fi FPS MMO that Bungie is toiling away on with their new publisher Activision. What do you guys think it is that they are working on, and what do you want to see from Bungie next?
