Remember when we said Bungie was working on an action-oriented MMO? Yeah, well, not so much. Bungie now says that was supposed to be a joke.
“Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors. Unfortunately, most people can’t figure David out – they can’t process him. And we don’t expect them to.”
So this Aldridge fellow is Bungie’s Charlie Sheen. Nice.
Of course Bungie still hasn’t completely denied that the company is working on an MMO. So who knows? Bungie said some journalist saw a slide with MMO stuff on it, but IGN, who broke this story, says this was spoken.
Let’s be clear: I don’t care if Bungie is making an MMO, RPG, FPS, or RTS. But did you guys really think people at GDC would see/hear that and think “Ha ha no way would they do that! You guys are hilarious!”
We’ll have more on this after Bungie declares via semaphore that its working on a 3DS Cookie Mama spin off.
