Subject: Bungie Weekly Update: 06/10/2011

When Bungie split to become an LLC (Limited Liability Corp.), I believe that Microsoft still retains publishing rights to their games as part of the agreement in 2007, including all properties. It's agreement with "Activision Blizzard" in 2010 is for MULTIPLE platforms. Bungie also retains most/all trademarks and intellectual propertie(s) (IP) pertaining to its new IP.

It's a good thing you aren't a journalist.

After every dark night their is a always a brighter day..

Thank you bungie for lighting the torch of the halo universe

Thank you for the laughs, smiles, frustrations over tbags, campaign, game trailers that harvested thought, online play with anyone around the world, and great memories of custom games

I wanna make up for all the bad criticism you received from others who still do not realize how much hard work, accomplishments, and dedication you gave to halo

I hope you read this and I hope you stay on the lighted road

=)

Don't want no negativity. :)

Going to miss these updates, Halo will be different without Bungie but I can't wait.

Same here. I'm really sad about all this. And I think it's more than a little egotistical of Bungie to assume that their fanbase will simply hang around here and wait for them to return. Especially considering we don't know how long they'll be dark, and we don't even know what they'll be showing us when they eventually come back.

I'm 23, I have a house, dog, girlfriend, job and I have no interest in any fanboyism so if you're thinking about sending me a childish PM, don't be surprised when I don't call back.

I would rather you had said nothing than teased us more to be honest.

I breathe BR, not kidding homie.

Bungie's next project > Halo 4
or

I guess only time will tell

im gonna miss this. bungie's halo has been a part of my life for the better part of 10 years, it is always going to hold a special place in my heart. After HiH closed its doors, and now bungie is moving on, i cant help but feel like a good friend of mine is moving away, i know i can always call, but it will never be the same.

im super excited to hear what the next game will be, i know it will be good. just look at the jump from marathon to halo:CE.

i also cant imagine 343 will do a bad job, they are all halo fans and many were former bungie employees. i doubt they would ruin the game in any way. im excited to see where halo will end up.

bungie, ill see you on the other side <3

Good update thanks.

To those who much is given; much is lost.

This was a great update, Urk. You knew just what to say in just the right way. I think it is a little depressing to know that you guys are done with Halo, but it is the same feeling I got when I finished Halo 3. So I can't say I haven't felt this before, the feeling of an ended story. 

Anyway, I think Bungie has much to offer in the time to come. Although I did fall in love with Halo, it was the makers who got my attention. Bungie actually does listen to the community, and that is why the games are so great. The fact that Urk responded in this discussion to questions that needed to be answered is proof that Bungie does listen. 

Bungie is so great and so renowned because of the game they created. They first created Halo 10 years ago with the best technology to offer, and in result they set a new standard for video games. Each new game following the pattern... 

And now they realize that a new technology is available, they also realized that they once again will set the path for future games. They left Halo because they realized they are going to jump on a train they will take them to new heights. 

So please Bungie, realize you are not making a mistake. You will create a world like none other, and your deepest fans have faith. I appreciate you going into the dark ages for a little bit, I want you to take your time to make this the best game available. I don't care how long it takes. A good game is worth time, don't cut it short.

....spongy, bungie, who cares? I got mine!

Call me whatever you like, but I'm sorry but the feeling in my stomach makes me feel sick, it's like a cold lonely goodbye. Sad and bitter, but you knows it's for the best. The taste left in my mouth is selfishness. I want Bungie to keep working on Halo, but it's selfish of me to want such a thing. I'm really sad that this site I've been visiting FAR before I was an actual member of for all my Halo news and updates will soon be so "Halo-Less".

I've been here since it was a purple website called "7ru7th & Reconciliation" Way back when me and my dad used to play Halo CE Campaign together, my dad has since that time passed on, leaving only memories, memories of a game that helped us bond as Father and Son. The same game that me and my step dad used to play until 5am in the morning and my mom would get so mad at him for not coming to bed. She too, has passed. Halo has been a huge part of my life.

I've played it with my Dad, my mom, my stepdad, my sister, my brother, my ex gfs, my fiance, and my friends. I'm excited for the Halo CE Remake for the fact I can relive all those moments that I had played for the first time 10 years ago with my dad, the only thing is this time I'll be alone. There will be no other spartan to stand beside me. No one holding second player controller this time around. Just an old dusty remote, laying there with the old fingerprints of people from my past. People who I introduced to the game and they all fell in love with it.

I honestly feel sick to my stomach to know I must suffer another loss, it's nothing compared to losing my mom or dad, but it's losing a tool I used with people to bond with them. Losing the company and their game that kept my mind off things so I could make it through my life one more day. Losing a story I became completely indulged in. It's watching this story being taken over by another author. Another cartographer.

I feel an honest and considerable amount of sadness over the parting of Bungie, and Halo. But I will stiffen up my upper lip. Straighten my spine and smile through the pain. Hide it under my fake front like I've done with every difficult parting I've done in the past.

I'm sure alot of you are going to say I'm crazy. But so be it. I love Halo, and it's sad to lose things you love. I know Halo is still being made but it's not the same company. It's like watching a loved one being put into the hospital and the doctors just keep telling you "We're keeping them stable". You're hoping everything will be ok and they'll come home, but you know also that something could happen and they'll never come home again. Halo is our loved one and 343 Industries is the doctor, telling us "They're stable".

Hopefully we don't take home the next Halo in a different state than what we've known it. Hopefully it is exactly what we've come to expect and know from Halo.

I love you Bungie.



tl;dr: It's sad.

I know that you said that B.net is going dark for a long while. However, you did through in there that Aerospace is counting down to launch. So that makes me tinkle a little at the thought of not being left completly out in the cold dark vastness of space.

When will we know about the remaining time on the countdown for Aerospace. My guess would be Bungie Day. But hoping that we recieve a little more than a countdown time.

Which I suppose that I'm being stingy, it is your day after all, so we should be giving you something.

Don't worry the plans for that massive slingshot are still in the making. I've almost going to calulations right for the strap, but I can only get 2000 people in it. Do you need more room.

Wassup yo.

When is the next method for getting a star nameplate going to be announced? I am, how do you call it, artfully challenge? So I couldn't create anything worthy for the All-Stars weeks. I really want a fighting chance at getting a star.

You boys finally goin' dark for a while?
