Bungie.net Update
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Bungie's resident webmaster Yereon has given the site a healthy update, noting the status of their many projects. He mentions their newest Bungie recruits, discusses life at Microsoft, details the revival of the Bungie Store and more. Here's an excerpt:

Hiring for the online team is going well. We've hired a full-time interface designer who starts at the end of the month, but we still have an open position for a web engineer. We have some strong candidates, but if you're interested its not too late. Check out the jobs page on Bungie.com. When its all said and done we'll have six people on the team, which should be a lot of fun.

Life at Microsoft is interesting. A few issues inherent to working at a giant corporation with a large target around its neck, but all in all we've had a very positive, very reassuring experience. Except that we haven't had a Shaft theme song sing-along in a bit, the atmosphere's too stuffy. When we move to our new digs we'll have to remedy that.

Providing an easy way for Bungie players to get support is also coming along nicely. We have something tricky up our sleeves; part of it involves extensive FAQs and detailed articles. We've finished drafts of both. All considered a lot of work has gone into assuring you can find the answers to your problems, and I believe you'll be impressed with the results.

We're still considering options for reviving the Bungie Store, but we're now very close to a solution.

Our plans for the next FanFest are really turning out well. Just wait til you see what we have up our sleeves! I won't spoil the surprise, but I will say if you're sitting the fence go ahead and make plans to attend, you won't be disappointed.

We've been giving a lot of thought to the future of this web portal site, and we've come up with some incredibly cool ideas. More details to come.

Check out the Bungie.net site for more regular community info. We'll keep you posted if their store does make its way back online.
