Bungie has told Eurogamer there really are "no plans" for new Halo 3 content beyond Halo 3: ODST after all.

That familiar stance was temporarily upended this week by game producer Allen Murray, who said the studio would work on Halo 3 for "probably" two more years.

"We'll never say never, but currently Bungie has no plans to make new Halo 3 content beyond the release of ODST," Bungie told us. "We will, however, continue to support the Halo 3 online experience with regular updates to matchmaking playlists and wield the Banhammer as needed.

"With Forge and the Mythic map Sandbox we're already seeing the community stepping up to create some great new maps and gametypes that will offer more variety and longevity to the game down the road.

The future of Halo 3 online will become more and more defined by the people who play it," added the developer.

Halo 3: ODST will launch exclusively on Xbox 360 this autumn. Before then, on 9th April, Bungie will launch the Mythic Map Pack on Xbox Live.
