The screenshot you see above is one I took just after 17:00 (local time) yesterday, and it’s the sight that awaits you if you point your browser over to www.bungie.com
Love it or hate it, Halo was one of the biggest game launches ever, and when Bungie gear up to announce something new, it’s worth taking notice. Since Halo Wars has been revealed already in a CGI trailer last year, that leaves only three options:
- It’s the official unveiling of the Peter Jackson Halo project, which Bungie has referred to before
- It’s a completely new IP
- It’s a game based in the Halo universe, but following a completely different set of characters and plot.
Whatever the case, when the countdown timer visible in the bottom right of that picture (click for the larger version) reaches zero, we’ll have a chance to see how tied Bungie really is to the Halo universe. Keep an eye out for the announcement at 17:07 local time, today.
