Bungie boss says the studio has been working on new games for three years

57 Views

Bungie has been working on several new games for three years now, according to CEO Pete Parsons. He addressed the studio’s future games and split with Activision in a wide-ranging interview with Metro. Asked about Bungie’s January 2019 split with publisher Activision, which while high-profile was seemingly amicable, Parsons said that the studio’s consistent desire is “for creative independence.” Obviously that means control of Destiny 2, but Parsons segued into discussing  future Bungie games.

It’s not a huge surprise that the studio has other projects in the works. It filed a video game software trademark in the EU for Matter in 2018. In 2019, Bungie also planned to release a non-Destiny game at some point before 2025. This year, a job listing was mentioned working on something “lighthearted and whimsical.” Christopher Barrett is also currently listed as the game director of an unannounced project.

“So we started about three years ago, Jason [Jones] and Jonny Ebbert and Zach Russell and a few of us started working on new incubations,” said Parsons. That would have been in 2017, just ahead of Bungie’s decision to take on a huge cash infusion from NetEase in 2018 and shortly followed by its split from Activision. Parsons also said that M.E. Chung, designer on Destiny’s social systems, was working on an incubation project.
