Recon is last Halo trilogy project, says Bungie

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 10 October 2008 07:07 GMT

Speaking to GI in Tokyo, Bungie PR director Brian Jarrard said that Halo 3 Recon would signal an end to Bungie’s work on the current Halo trilogy.

“I don’t think so,” he said when asked if we can expect more from the developer on the series.

“We’ve already put a couple of map packs out, we do have more maps on the way. We actually have a Mythic map pack coming out early next year. We don’t have firm details or a date yet, but we do have one more map pack coming out, and then we do have some maps associated with the actual Recon retail release.

“But I think when this project wraps up in a couple of months that will be the time when that team moves on to something else – part of that team will move on to something else and part of them will probably be absorbed into one of the other projects that are already on the way.”

More through there. Recon’s out next year.
