Recent rumours suggest that Halo developers Bungie are planning to reveal a brand new game at X06 in September. However, it seems this new game definately won’t be part of the Halo franchise. An unnamed source from within Microsoft said
“As far as things stand, Halo 3 is the last game and it’s more than just ‘a thing to say’ which I know came as a surprise to everyone when it was announced. A new game from Bungie, not Halo 4, will be announced soon and pre-production has begun. So if you’re looking for what to expect at X06, you should be looking at that.”
In other X06 related news, Eric Nylund, the science fiction writer behind Halo: The Fall of Reach and the story and plot for Gears of War has revealed that he is working on a new project with Microsoft Game Studios that is expected to be unveiled at X06
“Well, if you took all the best parts of your favorite games, and smashed them together at light speed with your favorite movies and books, you’d get something close to this. It’s not announced yet, but as soon as Microsoft does, I can at least tell you the title, genre, and what particular thing makes this game goose-bump worthy. So stay tuned.”
X06 takes place in Barcelona, Spain on September 27th and 28th.
