Bungie teasing July 7 announcement

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

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.
