    Found this thread fairly interesting

    For those not following the past few months of Bungie Updates, or the giant Halo 3 mega thread, Bungie appears to have been dropping a series of hints about their first post-Halo project. Today three more iterations of the teasing showed up, so in the interest of keeping the discussion out of the Halo threads - since it's pretty clearly not Halo related - I've compiled all of the hints that have been spotted so far.

    Apparently, there is a new "member rank" or whatever on the forums called "Superintendent." All of the profiles that belong to it don't have names, just a collection of "|||||||||"s and a shared profile picture that differs with the eyes.

    Hopefully we'll get to see more on whatever this Superintendent thing is... and soon. :)

    They're about as multiformat as Naughty Dog or Insomniac.

    You got a link which pledges their allegiance to the 360?

    Their next game is a PS3 exclusive, actually.

    Well joking aside, didnt they do Oni on the PS2? If so, why is it stupid to assume they may do non-MS console work now they are a indie?

    I hope it's another FPS, just so I can see the shocked look on their faces when it gets average review scores due to the lack of microsoft funded pr and hype. or is that too cruel a thing to wish for? ;)

    Oni was made pre-MS buyout, IIRC.

    Link

    MS retain a stake in it. There's a better link on B.net but I cant find it. They are focusing on their relationship with MS.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Bungie's doing halo 4 next of course! It'll be announced at E3 apparently, so the web says

    Why does everyone seem so defensive about Bungie only working on the 360?

    I mean, they have said that at the moment they are concentrating on the 360 but never ruled out any other formats and why should they?

    The more consoles their games go on the better surely?

    That is too cruel to wish for AND MS will in all likely hood still publish the title and fund the PR/Hype.

    Bungie have never made a bad game.

    As far as I'm aware Bungie aren't actually the ones working on the next Halo... which is why Frankie left to join MS.

    Anythings a possibility, we've seen how the mighty can fall with free radical and Haze.

    Well, my point is not so much that I think the quality will drop, but rather the halo franchise and hype seemed to leave most reviews in a confused daze of positivity.

    Well, yea, probably but they claim to be a multi game company now so they've got a different project in the works too.

    Doubt halo 4 will be called halo 4 either, probably 'Master Chief episode 1' or something :p

    They already said it's not a Halo game. Might be in the same universe though.

    Not defensive about it... it's just we saw those stupid comments when they split with MS. It's no more likely now than it was then.

    Why are you so keen to see Bungie go multiplatform? What's wrong with the 360?

    Aren't Microsoft doing Halo 4? I get the impression Bungie are doing something different next. I doubt we'll see anything at this year's E3 though, it's a bit soon after halo 3 for that. Maybe next year.

    Wasn't Halo a trilogy? It would make no sense to call it Halo anymore. As you say it'll probably just be "Master Chief" or something. That could work. A bit like "Rocky Balboa".

    For my serious answer, I think they'll expand upon Forge and make a multiplayer focused FPS title with crazy amounts of user content creation/tools. Little big planet with guns :D
