Bungie child company launches Halo-suggestive countdown trailer
‘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.
