Bungie child company launches Halo-suggestive countdown trailer

Monday, 23rd May 2011 01:25 GMT By Brenna Hillier

‘Tis the season for countdowns, this one hinting at something possibly Halo-shaped from a company strongly associated with Bungie.

Podophobia, a company reportedly set up to (unsuccessfully) keep fans and press from discovering Bungie trademark filings, has launched a website with the messages “Incoming Transmission…” and “Please Wait…” beneath a lengthy countdown timer.

Currently sitting at around 116 days, TechInfinite reports the end date of the countdown is the ten year anniversary of the original Halo: Combat Evolved, pointing to a long-expected HD remake of a game that inarguably changed the console scene.

On the other hand, Bungie has left the Halo series in Microsoft and 343 Industry’s hands, signing a ten-year publishing deal with Activision. It is rumoured to be working on a sci-fi MMO called Destiny.

In either case, we’re looking at about four months, so if we’re counting down to release rather than reveal, expect illumination at E3.

Thanks, someguy2.

    You might wanna take a look at this:

    There’s an update saying it wasn’t registered by Bungie.

    But…..if this is real, we could be looking at a TGS 2011 reveal. Which doesn’t make sense.

    I’m fairly surprised that nobody seems to have noticed that the countdown started at 117 days. i.e. John-117. The big MC.

    That said, I kind of hope this has nothing at all to do with Halo and something new and either wonderful or forgettable will come our way.
