Bungie teasing July 7 announcement

Monday, 30th May 2011 00:29 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Bungie has announced that it’s going to make an announcement next week. This is a warning, so you have some spare underwear handy when the time comes.

Writing on the developer’s blog, Bungie’s Eric Osborne explained why the Bungie.net website has been “less and less active” recently.

“A significant amount of my time is also now being dedicated to other upcoming endeavors that won’t make a splash on the front page until Bungie Day [July 7] closes in around us,” he said.

“Unfortunately, that means there are just too many balls in the air for me to juggle without letting a few fall to the ground. More explicit details about those balls in the weeks ahead.”

Osborne apologised for Bungie’s long silence, and promised the developer will “make it up to you soon”.

Another contributing factor to Osborne’s silence is a recent “super-secret Los Angeles excursion”.

Can’t wait? Osborne also alluded to “breadcrumbs tucked away into the folds of Bungie.net that just might lead to something [Bungie staff have] been working on for a little bit now”.

Bungie has entered into a long-term publishing contract with Activision, and is rumoured to have a sci-fi MMO in the works.

Thanks, Blue.

    Fuck, why even post ‘rumored to have a SCI-FI MMO in the works’ when clearly they said that wasn’t the case and was definitely not a MMO they were doing. You guys probably even made a post about it but I can’t remember because I go on a whole bunch of gaming sites. Anyway, yeah bungie said before the comment made by one of their guys about it being a MMO are false, so why add to a rumor that is false???? It means guys like badboy_122 who don’t have a clue about the statement will start wondering if it really is a MMO which would be completely unlike bungie anyway..

    You can’t say that it’s wrong because you don’t even know what it’s going to be. And what does it mean “completely unlike bungie”? Bungie is going to do what Acti wants and if Acti wants another MMO they’re going to get an MMO.

    /e: Yeah my fault, the bungie day is on june 7th. I thought the bungie day is on july 7th. and they’re going to tease something for the event.

    I’d like Bungie to make a new Myth-game. Though I kind of doubt they have what it takes to make a good game after all these Halo-years.

    @8 @10 “Bungie teasing July 7 announcement” followed right underneath by, “Bungie has announced that it’s going to make an announcement next week.”

    Yeah, but July 7th isn’t next week. June 7th is. Bungie Day is July 7th.
