At a panel session at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco today, Bungie lead network engineer David Aldridge confirmed to attendees that the developer's next title is a "massively multiplayer action game."

Rumors about the game have bounced around the internet in recent weeks, with anonymous sources describing the new project as "WoW in space." At his talk, titled "I Shot You First: Networking the Gameplay of Halo: Reach," Aldridge specifically noted that the title is not "WoW in space." So there you have it.

The still-untitled game series will be published by Activision, and it's the first non-Halo project the studio has worked on since joining Microsoft to release Halo: Combat Evolved. This isn't the first time a Bungie rep has mentioned that the studio was interested in making a persistent online game. In answer to a fan's query about the upcoming project during a 2010 GDC session, Bungie's Joseph Staten responded by asking, "Wouldn't it be great if we could make a world that was always there for you?"

It will be Bungie's first game published by Activision. I wonder if Activision had a say in what Bungie should make next. I can see that happening since Bobby Kotick is a prick without shame.


UPDATE: The rumors were false and he was only playing off the rumors that there would be a Bungie MMO.

Meh. I would have liked to have seen another FPS from Bungie, even if it wasn't Halo-related. Or at least not an MMO.

I've never played an MMO before, so I suppose the one made by Bungie would be a great way to start.

Bungie had already worked on an MMO in the past, and screenshots were leaked somewhat around the time it was cancelled.

I'd be extremely curious to if this has any tie-in with the Blizzard team though, who are also working on a futuristic MMO under the codename "Titan".

Kotick is in charge of this?

Bungie is dead.

Bungie should have went with EA instead, they could've made a good FPS game without a name "HALO" in the front of the case.

It wasn't confirmed though. Who cares about bogus rumors.

EA is a... well, they're better than they used to be, and far better than Activision, but I still wouldn't trust them.

The Slide Heard Round the World


Tired of pretending that he’s not a -blam!-in’ rock star from Mars, David Aldridge inhaled a huge hit of David Aldridge at GDC yesterday. Subsequently, his face melted off and children wept over his exploded body. After the childish tears, gelatinous gibs, and acrid smoke cleared, an industrious journalist noticed the final slide from David’s GDC deck which apparently proclaimed that we were hiring for a "massively…multiplayer action game." Ruh oh.

Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors. Unfortunately, most people can’t figure David out – they can’t process him. And we don’t expect them to. You can’t process David Aldridge with a normal brain. You’d need tiger blood and Adonis DNA.

FYI. The tape will exonerate me, but I'm sorry anyway. :(

Apology accepted, David. See you when you get back from rehab. Hopefully we’ll have your full presentation, along with everyone else’s ready for the publications page. No promises.

Oh, so it was a joke.

Perhaps, you are doing what you were meant to do.

Your human mentality screams for vengeance and thrives on the violence that you say you can hardly endure.

Your father told you as a child to always fight with honor, but to always fight.

Do you care about honor, or do you use honor as an excuse?

An excuse to exist in a violent world.
