Xbox 360 boss Don Mattrick has confirmed that Bungie is making a new Halo game.
Speaking in an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Mattrick explained it was held back from the Microsoft E3 conference because the briefing was already "loaded" with content.
He went on to promise that announcements are planned for the Bungie project and Halo Wars - another notable absentee from the conference.
Mattrick also revealed that this Bungie title was in no way related to the mysterious Peter Jackson project we've still heard nothing about.
Perhaps everyone is waiting for the Leipzig Games Convention.
