When I heard that Bungie would be leaving the Halo universe in search of new, greener gaming pastures, I was waiting with baited breath to see the outcome. Well, one thing I was not expecting was Bungie Aerospace, the latest project from the game developers. Now before you get any ideas about a new flight simulation, Aerospace is not a game. Rather Bungie Aerospace “was created to help small, independent developers launch their mobile and social games.”
In a press release from Bungie, Pete Parsons, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “Bungie has always been passionate about making and playing great games, regardless of platform.” He went on to say, “Bungie Aerospace will allow us to explore game creation in multiple formats with some amazingly talented teams. Now that we’ve returned to our roots as an independent studio, we are in a position to launch Bungie Aerospace to support, foster, and elevate like-minded, independent developers.”
Bungie’s first partnership is with Seattle-based developer Harebrained Schemes on ‘Crimson’, the studio’s first mobile game due to be released this summer on iOS and Android. For more information on Bungie Aerospace check out their website.
