“Halo: Reach will be Bungie’s last Halo game,” is a statement that would seem obvious enough. And yet, there’s apparently a bit more wiggly room than previous thought, as evidence by recent comments made by Bungie community and PR director Brian Jarrard during GamesCom 2009.
Speaking with VideoGamer, Jarrard said, “The clarification is we just don’t know at this point…I think there's a lot of work just to get Reach done between now and next fall. At that point anything's possible. We're going to keep looking at making the games we want to make. Maybe that's Halo. Maybe it's not. We'll have to wait and see."
Wait and see, indeed. Fortunately, fans still have quite a bit of Halo to look forward too in the meantime. Halo 3: ODST hits shelves September 22nd, and Reach is expected to be released sometime next year.
Do you think Bungie’s next IP will be developed for the 360 or the next-next-gen Microsoft console?
