Bungie's Halo Send-Off
Bungie's Halo Send-Off
Bungie ends its 20th anniversary celebrations with open letter to fans.
In an open letter to fans posted on Bungie.net, the developer has said goodbye to its flagship series, which will be handled in the future by internal Microsoft studio 343 Industries. The letter marks the end of Bungie's 20th anniversary celebrations, which have been a heartfelt celebration of the Halo franchise.
Community manager Eric "urk" Osborne writes: "Halo is yours now. In many ways, it always has been. Its new caretakers will strive, just as we did, to be worthy stewards but you have the package. Hold these characters and stories and worlds to the same unflinching standards you did while we were at the helm, but allow them all to blossom and change and grow in the ways that they must."
The letter pays tribute to Halo fans' passion and dedication, reiterating that all proceeds from the 20th anniversary activities are going to charity. It gets all flowery and teary-eyed towards the end: "One day, we will awaken in a wondrous new place and we will remember just what it was that drew us together at the beginning of it all. We will look up to the heavens, and find hope."
Osborne also teased the developer's next project, as Bungie.net prepares for a relaunch. "We'll be undergoing a metamorphosis of our own. Very soon Bungie.net will change, culminating with the launch of our next universe at some unknown time in the future," he writes.
"Afterwards, we'll be going dark on our studio's next major endeavor – the creation of a brand new universe. You'll still have a home here should you choose to stay, but our next project demands an unwavering focus. We owe it to ourselves to make something better than we ever have before. We owe it to you, as well."
I AM ..........a GAMER.
