Bungie : We May make more Halo

1 min read


Halo Reach is the last Halo game from Bungie, a full stop on the end of a prosperous sentence – but just like Sean Connery, they may end up having to “Never say never again.”

Bungie has told CVG that calling Halo Reach their final Halo game is a little “premature”

"You know, it might be premature to say we’ll never ever, ever make a Halo game again. We sort of have a little special place for Halo in our hearts. But for the foreseeable future, this [Halo Reach] is it."

Asked if the team was under pressure – with this being their Halo swansong, Bungie community boss Brian Jarrard said :

"There is a degree of pressure there but I also think that inspires our team. If we don’t ever come back to Halo again, we better damn well make sure that our last game is the best one ever. Let’s set that bar really high and at least leave our fans something really special."

I’m admittedly not much of a Halo fan, but I am keen to see what bungie – who’ve proven themselves to be a fantastic studio – are capable of producing when free from the shackles of Halo. It’ll also be interesting to see what 343 Studios – set up by Microsoft to continue the Halo franchise in Bungie’s absence – will do with the extensive Halo universe.

    I still don’t understand the allure of Halo. I recently got a new elite, actually the one that comes with the Halo 3 and Halo ODST bundle (don’t laugh, it was the only one in look and listen at the time, and I felt very embarrassed walking with it to the car), I popped in the Halo disk, and 10 minutes later, I was watching Ugly Betty with the missus.

    I guess, the magic of halo is really on multiplayer? In that case, since I’m still boycotting xbox live (We demand Live for South Africa blah blah), who wants Halo ODSt and 3?

      If you ever do figure it out, would you let me know?

      I was thinking the same about Halo 3 but after I played about 2 hours, then I got really hooked. The story gets good and the enemies keep coming.

    Halo is awesome.

    4 Player coop, epic story, polished controls… it does it all.

    Cannot wait for Reach, hoping there is some new books in the pipeline also.

    Most SAFFAS don’t ‘get’ halo since they jumped in at Halo 3… at the final chapter.

    You needed to be there with Halo 1 and Halo 2… :wub:

      I played Halo 1 and 2..I thought they were OK. I just don’t *get* it.

      I don’t find the story compelling. The 4 player co-op and overall polished nature of the games I will concede.

      Sci-Fi generally doesn’t interest me though.

        Maybe, we’re over-analyzing it Geoff?

          Like looking for deeper meaning at the bottom of my streetwise 2 box?
