Bungie Says MMO Announcement At GDC Was A Joke

Following Bungie’s lead network designer David Aldridge’s announcement at GDC that the next Bungie game will be a “massively multiplayer action game”, Bungie retracted the statement in their latest weekly update saying it was a joke gone wrong. From Bungie’s site:

“Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors. Unfortunately, most people can’t figure David out – they can’t process him. And we don’t expect them to. You can’t process David Aldridge with a normal brain. You’d need tiger blood and Adonis DNA.”

So apparently, all this fuss was just a joke that the rest of the world wasn’t in on. Not cool Bungie, not cool. Sorry for the confusion folks.
