Bungie's bigass 20th anniversary documentary may contain a look at its upcoming Activision title

Shares

From Minotaur to Myth, Marathon to Master Chief, the House of Halo wasn’t built in a day. Bungie’s got your proof right here, with a ginormous, feature-length documentary that’ll take you on a two-decade journey through one of the biggest developers in the universe. Clear you schedule, because this incredibly well-produced doc is well worth a watch. I mean, for no other reason than it could very well contain your first look at that unseen title Bungie has in development with Activision…

We’re hard at work here, so we didn’t have the required hour to watch the whole thing (but there’s nothing stopping you from reviewing the film in the comments below!). However, we saw plenty of great shit while scrubbing through the vid at the speed of professional journalism, including damn everyone ever involved in Bungie, prototype Halo footage, the Penny Arcade boys, Cap’n Malcolm “Nathan Fillion!” Reynolds, AND potentially the first ever footage of Bungie’s upcoming Activision-published project codenamed “Tiger” rumored to be a sci-fi massively-multiplayer, first-person shooter.


Above: Daggum, ya'll! This shore ain't no Halo map I ever seed...

Watching the teams' excitement during the final minutes of the video certainly adds some credence to that speculation. Oh yeah, then there's this tiny emblem:

We'll let you know more as soon as we do.

    Wow, that looks really shitty. I hope things start looking up as more of the new game is revealed or it seems Halo will be the only thing Bungie is good for.

    [sorry for the double comment] In response to jetser's comment: if Halo is Bungie with their hands tied, then this next thing has the potential to be one of the greatest games of all time.

    That screenshot with the windmill-looking thing reminds me of Journey, for some reason. I have absolutely no idea why. Oh and an AWESOME final ViDoc for Bungie.

    I'm pretty sure I will be buying whatever this new game is. Bungie just really loves and listens to it's community, can't really say the same for most developers these days.

    @squat_and_rot I'm not sure what's more pathetic, your spelling, your whining, or your inability to tell the difference between an apostrophe and a semicolon.

    Super intrigued for what Bungie are doing next, and seeing the couple of seconds of desert and mountains was such a massive tease, but I can't help but think that the icon/logo thing that turned up at the very end looks a lot like a female reproductive system. That said, that was an hour well spent, Bungie are one of my favourite dev teams out there, alongside Naughty Dog and Valve, and they obviously care a lot about their products. I guess all I have to say is thanks for a decade of great gaming, especially with ODST and Reach, and I can't wait for what they've got in store.

    Bungie has got to be one of my favorite developers, mainly for their dedication to their fans. I love every single game in the Halo series, and will definitely be playing their new games. I think the reason that most people find the newer Halo games not as good as the first two games is because they just couldn't accept that they can't all be the exact same. Sure Halo:CE and Halo 2 are awesome, but so are Halo 3, ODST, and Reach, they just play differently from each other, and for some reason people think that's a bad thing.

    Whatever it is, if it even comes close to having the impact that the first Halo had on the games industry as a whole, then I cannot wait to see it. Unless everyone on Earth suffers simultaneous amnesia, Bungie will be immortalized forever by what they have created.

    @DaveGoose Blame Charlie, he reviewed it. And doesn't that windmill look a little steampunkish to you? Maybe its part of the steampunk styled Crimson that Bungie is helping to make.

    "Clear you schedule, because this incredibly well-produced doc is well worth a watch." *You. lol

    Like their games or not, there is not another game company that loves its fans more then bungie.
  • squat_and_rot - August 4, 2011 10:58 p.m.

    @ errbo: You want Bungie to get their shit together, alrighty then, theire games have averaged incredible scores and have sold a fuddle load. Your lame man, just because your not a fan of their games doesn;t mean the games suck. Reach was eh, but it didn;t suck.
  • DaveGoose - August 4, 2011 10:50 p.m.

    Ironically I was never a Halo fan really, but I thought Reach was great. Damn you Antista for giving it an 8 *shakes fist half assely*
  • Errrrbo - August 4, 2011 10:23 p.m.

    The last Bungie game I liked was Halo 2. Wasn't a fan of 3, ODST, or Reach. Hopefully they'll get their shit together for this new series, whatever it may be.
  • FunkyPickle - August 4, 2011 10:22 p.m.

    I will always be a loyal follower of Bungie. I came for the Halo, but stayed for the Bungie.
  • Nodoudt - August 4, 2011 10:21 p.m.

    Bungie, I salute thee.
