Bungie Hasn't Decided On Lead Platform For New Game
Okay, so we all know Bungie is working on a new IP for multiple platforms, but as of yet, we know very little about the project.
On top of which, they haven't even decided on the lead platform for their new game, which sort of indicates that we're a ways off from seeing anything concrete in terms of gameplay. Some are expecting that Bungie will choose the Xbox 360 as they obviously have plenty of experience with that platform, and as Bungie community boss Brian Jarrard told CVG, they "have a very intimate relationship with the 360." He goes further to say he's still excited about sharing their "new stories and universe with an even bigger audience and bring it to different devices and platforms and create new and interesting ways for our fans to engage." But even so, they remain undecided as to the lead platform; said Jarrard:
"It's a little bit too early for us to say which console we'll lead on. We're going to exactly figure out what's the right way to lead into our new universe and what's the right way to extend it. It's too early for me to say which console is going to be the first out of the gate."
Now, one could interpret the last statement as a possibility for the new game actually debuting on one console, but we doubt that'll be the case. And all we know for sure is that the new project will be action-oriented; beyond that, all we can really do is guess. But will Bungie side with the console they know, or will they try something new...?
