Bungie: All Platform Options Are Open
Bungie's Brian Jarrard has spoken of the studio's next moves after Halo: Reach, and has hinted at a possibility of supporting the PlayStation 3 platform.

"All options are open right now," the community manager said during an interview with IndustryGamers. "So long as we find the best possible fit for our creative vision and what this project is going to be." When asked about the PlayStation 3 and the Wii specifically, Jarrard said that, although specific platforms haven't been decided for its next title, the studio isn't looking at one specific piece of technology at the moment.

"We definitely have plans in the works, and I think we're really close to understanding of what is next and who, what, when, where, that's all going to land," he added.

About what that next game could be, Jarrard was less forthcoming, but did explain that Bungie's successful past may be a factor in what genre this new project will be. "The studio has had a lot of success in the first-person genre. We've also made some third-person games that have been successful, the Myth series as an RTS game was successful, so we have a really broad array of interests, even outside of game development.

"It's going to be a whole new universe and a whole new experience - something that our team is really excited about and I think our fans will be equally excited once we pull back the curtain and talk about it," the community manager said.

I'd like to see a Bungie RTS on the Wii, or for them to jump back on the current Mac bandwagon, but I think I'm in the minority on both counts. Whatever they do, I just hope it's different and interesting.
