Bungie.net Update, Future
10:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The Bungie.net web page has been updated with more details on their recent move to Redmond, Washington, under the steely gaze of the Microsoft campus. Apparently some Myth and Myth II players are still having difficulty connecting to the b.net servers, but the team is trying to get these issues resolved as quickly as possible. The webmaster Yeroen made an interesting post discussing their online plans, for now and in the future. Here's a clip:
Most of you haven't heard much about our long term plans, so I'll give you a brief overview. We've formed an online team specifically to maintain and support the gaming servers and to help develop better future online content. This spans a number of areas, from the web pages where we have almost complete freedom to the game networking, where we'll work with the teams to help them improve their game's online capabilities. All in all it should be a lot of fun for us and lead to a lot more fun for all of you. Once we're settled in and fully staffed I'll fill you in on some of the details.He also notes they are far behind in their email-answering, though this couldn't be avoided. Here's an excerpt from his explanation:
The last few stragglers from Bungie East finally arrived today, so hopefully things will soon calm down. However, there are a few things that are going to take some time to sort out, especially customer service and web issues. We lost our web programmer, so My modem is on fire has helped pick up the slack. He's been doing a great job getting the servers and web pages back up, even though it's not his specialty. Hopefully we'll fill this opening soon. Then we closed down much of our customer support and sales teams, so we're having to figure out how to integrate these things into Microsoft's existing structure. We'll get it all sorted out, but in the meantime we may take a bit to reply to your inquiries. Sorry about that.We're sure once Bungie - now Bungie Studios - is settled into a routine, things will be working just as smoothly as ever. In the meantime, check out the Bungie.net site for updates and news.
