If my intel is right, Jack Tretton and the folks over at Sony aren’t quite done with their announcements just yet. If the source pans out, expect Sony to announce a new partnership with now Microsoft-less Bungie on supposedly a new IP to be fully revealed in playable form at the upcoming E3 event.
Details are scant right now, but we can rule out two things immediately:
1. It’s not Halo. That’s Microsoft’s baby, though Bungie does still plan to support it in some capacity or another after ODST ships in the fall.
2. It’s not the much desired next-gen remake or sequel to Marathon.
What I know is that it’s been in development for about approximately 14 months now, is exiting alpha, and probably isn’t schedule for release until mid-late (probably late) next year. It will not be multplatform, at least from the get go. It will be action orientated, though apparently, “vastly different then anything we’ve done before. That’s all until the announcement.”
Expect Tretton’s announcement later on today or tomorrow, with possibly a teaser trailer to accommodate it. Now, I understand what this sounds like given the timing, but I do have confidence in my source.
