The Teasing Has Begun.

Dead Orbit? Seven Seraphs? New Monarchy? Bungie Aerospace? "Per Audacia Ad Astra" (Boldly going to the stars?)

As much as that would make me squee, I'd prefer something original.

I wouldn't mind a remake of Marathon. Shoot, almost two decades old, how many on the forum here were even alive when it came out...?

I was twenty-something months old... and I'd like a remake, but I'm more curious to see new things.

As somebody who thought the coolest thing about Bungie during Marathon's announcment was that they weren't just grunting out a PiD sequel, and was profoundly disappointed at Marathon 2 in spite of its being a great game, that would be the last thing I want. I want the Bungie that blazed new ground with Myth and Oni, not the “Bungie” that turned Halo from a daring genre experiment into a watered-down Marathon knockoff.

Eric,

Never mind. That "and" was a divider. Too bad. I wanted a new toy peripheral to play Bungie's new game with.

[up][up]Hell yeah, a proper sequel/remake of Oni would be awesome. I heard that game was rushed out when Microsoft had Bungie concentrate on the Xbox exclusive Halo and a lot of planned features was cut and it really showsad.

Oh come on, you of all people should be familiar with all the pre-sellout hype about Halo that Bungie was pumping out. I'm not saying Halo was a bad game, I bought the Mac port and enjoyed it a lot, but it absolutely pales in comparison with what they were originally aiming for. Giant seamless levels, persistant world, nonlinear story, coop games with an enormous player cap… The closest any actual game comes would be maybe Planetside if it had a story.

Halo started out as a project at the industry's cutting edge, but almost every feature to distinguish it from other generic shooters was dropped by release, and if it had been a PC exclusive in the state of its Xbox release even before when the Xbox release actually happened, it would've vanished into the generic PC FPS market like a raindrop in a lake.

I like sequels, prequels, remakes and spiritual successors as much as the next guy, but I like games that are actually original a lot more.

Is there a corollary to Godwin's Law about replacing references to Hitler with references to Microsoft? That would be an apt thing to use here, methinks. On the other hand, if overhyping games backfired in some other way other than loss of sales and poor reviews, Peter Molineux would have probably been annihilated at a subatomic level by now.

I know, which is why I spared you the effort. On a more serious note, whatever they will do, it will most definitely be a hit - let's just hope it's an RTS and leave it at that?

Yeah, it does kind of sound like some kind of Space-RTS.

An MMOFPS?!

Kotaku is reporting the startling rumor that Bungie’s first multiplatform game for Activision will be a massively multiplayer online first-person shooter that is currently named Destiny.

Some of the claims are consistent to what was revealed at last year’s GDC, when Bungie creative director Joseph Staten hinted around that they were building an online persistent world.

Bemoaning that Halo players spent mere hours in the developer’s games, Staten wondered aloud “Wouldn’t it be great if we could make a world that was always there for you?”

This past January, Bungie registered web domains for “Bungie Aerospace” that strongly hinted at three different factions, which would be consistent with an MMO. The alleged ex-Bungie employee says that Destiny, codenamed “Tiger,” will run on a new Bungie-developed graphics engine and feature unique online connectivity and matchmaking technology. He called it “World Of Warcraft in space.”

I'll be interested to see if they can succeed where Richard Garriot went down in flames.

I don't know for sure yet... That it seems to fit with what we knew already doesn't say a thing, considering anyone could make that up. It'd be an awesome idea, but I'm not believing it until it's official.

I'm just worried about how Activision might handle this if the game really takes off. Can we say "We're firing you so we can get even more sh*tloads of money?" everyone?

[up]Bungie's deal with Activision is only a publishing agreement, and I think the rights will be owned by Bungie so Activision can't pull that stunt on Bungie.

Good. Hopefully they took the same precautions with 343 so Activision can't milk Halo.
