Bungie: MMO "Announcement" Was a Joke

Bungie Logo

At their recent GDC panel, Bungie's lead network engineer David Aldridge revealed that they were developing an MMO. Well it seems that his statement was taking out of context. According to Bungie in their recent update, "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." Strangely, however, while Bungie was quick to point out that their GDC announcement was meant to be taken in jest, they did not deny outright development on an MMO.

One thing is for certain; David Aldridge isn't the best joke teller. Let's hope with this recent debacle that Bungie will open the curtains to their secret project. Gamers everywhere are waiting with bated breath to see what Bungie can do after leaving the storied Halo series behind.
