Behind the scenes: Bungie's new headquarters

Above: Bungie's swank new demo theater, with luxurious seating and nightclub lighting

Above: Think they ever play Call of Duty in here?

Above: Welcome to the glamorous world of games journalism

Above: A small room set aside for interviews

Above: Armor used in one of the Halo franchise's many live-action advertisements. Yes, this is wearable!

Above: More armor and… boxes. Lots of boxes

Above: When I visited Bungie's last office building – photo tour here – this Oni poster was cleverly situated next to the women's restroom. What does placing her above the trash and recycling bins imply?

Above: Framed Halo concept art makes for a nice wall collage

Above: As do old magazine covers that celebrate the triumphs of your previous games

Above: Master Chief wants YOU… to learn Spanish

Above: This oversized Penny Arcade strip is displayed proudly in the halls of Bungie. Call me crazy, but I think the two-horned, three-armed, four-mouthed slug beast might be Microsoft. Ouch

Above: Believe it or not, this is Bungie. Everything you just saw is tucked away behind that generic outdoor mall façade. The door, in fact, is right above Gene Juarez's Salon & Spa… classy!

    Compared to other studios, it appeared kind of cheap or generic......can't put my finger on it.....

    Yet another reason to visit Seattle.

    Wow, that place is really awesome. I can remember seeing footage of the Bungie Pentathlon, and thinking that that's where I want to work when I grow up.

  • Shrimpandwhitewine - November 23, 2010 2:27 a.m.

    @FlikNightshade no, they just shanked Charlie while he was leaving with a shiv and told him to warn the others.
  • Stabby_Joe - November 22, 2010 11:06 p.m.

    I was too fixated on that Trow statue from Myth despite it being mostly Halo.
  • lovinmyps3 - November 22, 2010 11 p.m.

    Really nice office. I wonder what they're working on behind that door...
  • batmanboy11 - November 22, 2010 10:14 p.m.

    Their new office is awesome!
  • nightmare17 - November 22, 2010 10 p.m.

    well, now. It looks like they will have more assets to liquidate once their next 2 games flop and the studio goes under.
  • SausageLozenge - November 22, 2010 9:49 p.m.

    I'd work there
  • CH3BURASHKA - November 22, 2010 9:36 p.m.

    Holy shit, I didn't know THAT's where they were located - I've been in that area tons of times. I'm off to plan a infiltration mission to see what they're making.
  • FlikNightshade - November 22, 2010 9:10 p.m.

    You mean they didn't kick you guys out for having given Reach an 8?
  • Fenny12 - November 22, 2010 8:52 p.m.

    Damn, that is amazing. To think they made their first games in a shitty apartment.
  • atomicsandman - November 22, 2010 8:49 p.m.

    Wow, never would've thought all that was in mall
  • oryandymackie - November 22, 2010 8:43 p.m.

    Ever thought that this IS the project they're working on? Just saying.
