New Bungie RTS In Development?
10:01 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story
It has been rumored for some time that Bungie has had a third title in the works; they were even prepapred to announce this title at E3, but couldn't get a version of it stable enough to show to the press. Most indications pointed towards a new Myth game based on the Halo engine; after all, the remaining members of the Myth development team weren't just twiddling their thumbs at Bungie. One online store even went so far as to list Myth III for preorder.
GameSpot managed to finagle some degree of confirmation from Alex Seropian about this issue. Basically they learned the codename of the game is "The Pheonix project" and that the game is indeed an RTS based on the Halo engine, set in a fantasy world. The game will not be based in the Myth world of course, because Take Two Interactive now owns the Myth franchise - and indeed may already have their own Myth game in development, for Sega Dreamcast. Of course, any future titles by Bungie are most likely going to debut on the X-box console before other platforms.
