Ex-Microsoft developer Bungie Studios has announced that their 2010 title Halo: Reach will also be their last foray into the world of Master Chief mayhem.
That’s not to say that the barrage of Halo games will stop being developed, oh no. Microsoft has already hooked up 343 Industries for that little job. Hit the jump to find out more, and watch the Halo: Reach trailer.
After ten years on the job it’s understandable that Bungie wants to step away from the Halo spectacle and delve into other projects. It’s not such a big shock, either, as we’ve already seen that they can produce top-notch first and third-person titles; who could forget that brilliant shooter Oni?
Sad as it may be that Bungie are relinquishing the project that made them an internationally renowned company, it was bound to happen sooner or later. However, with two titles still yet to be released, Halo fans have plenty to get excited about.
Halo: ODST is set for release on September 22 with buyers given an invitation to play in the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta next year. Reach, meanwhile, is garnering heavy speculation in regards to whether it will utilize the Project Natal functions. I honestly don’t like the idea of having to move my entire body while playing a FPS, but I can understand why Microsoft would want to couple the two in order to boost Natal sales.
