Bungie confirms MMO project

Bungie confirms MMO project

Bungie has confirmed at GDC that it is working on a new MMO project.

Speaking at the Game Developers Conference out in San Francisco, Bungie's lead network engineer has confirmed that the developer's current project is an MMO action game.

The project will not be as simple as 'WoW in space' however, said David Aldridge, according to IGN.

Aldridge's comments come in response to rumours that the MMO is planned as a FPS-MMO, called Destiny. Destiny was said to introduce an entirely new engine and include PvP matchmaking, with rumour-mongers labelling it as 'WoW in space'.

Whatever the MMO turns out to be, it'll be published by Activision as part of Bungie's 10 year deal with the company after it split from Microsoft.

'We're really embarking on something that will be a significant undertaking for the studio that will involve multiple games set inside this brand new IP and universe,' Bungie's Brian Jarrard said at the time.

Sounds very much like they are trying to steal Blizzards thunder with the leaked and then confirmed announcement that they are probably also working on a MMOFPS with the name Titan. Let's see who can get theirs out first.

let's see if a company can finally release something that beats wow.

I'm a big fan of wow, but Halo is one of my favorite games of all time.

Bungie have done much more than just Halo and I know there is a very good games designer working from them who has some very creative plans - he's also an industry veteran who used to work for Bullfrog. WoW in space will be very far from the ball park I suspect.

Fixed. You weren't supporting piracy of course, were you?

I don't think they're trying to steal Blizzard's thunder but more likely trying to tap into a different market. Be interesting to see the results.

As long as it doesn't have a monthly fee. I can't believe people pay as much as they do to play WoW.

I'll take a wait and see approach prolly be months or over a year before anything concrete is out. Bungie is a top notch studio so I wouldn't expect a flop from them.
