Bungie confirms no-show at E3

Saturday, 7th May 2011 09:57 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Bungie’s confirmed that it won’t be attending E3 in a month’s time.

The developer is creating a new IP that will be published by Activision under a ten-year deal, and it was thought that this year’s event might be finally when we would see the new title in action, according to comments made by Acti COO Thomas Tippl at last year’s E3.

Not to be, though.

“Oh, and while we’re on the subject of clarification, we won’t officially be at E3 this year,” Bungie said in its weekly update on its website.

“Remember the Band-Aid approach I talked about last week? This is what it feels like in practice. Sorry for the sting. We wanted to make sure you didn’t get whipped into a rumor-fueled frenzy only to have your expectations unceremoniously dashed during expo week.”

E3 begins on the week of Monday, June 6.

    Remember when Jaffe said that he wasn’t going to E3? Look what happened. Maybe Bungie are lying to us

    Wow. I am guessing something is up. Activision assured us that Bungie’s game would be announced at E32011 last year.

    Either this game is going backwards on deadlines or Activision is going to announce it


    Activision is going to have some separate journalist demo event to announce and show it off.

    I’m not sure this means a huge amount. Whatever Bungie are up to people are going to be extremely interested to see it. A new IP is a lot more work to create materials for than a franchise installment.

    My guess is that they’d rather blow our socks off in a 2012 reveal then show something before it’s ready to be shown in 2011.
