Bungie's new game universe to be published by Activision will not be shown off at next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The Bellevue, Washington-based developer wrote on its website this weekend that while some Bungie staffers will be at the show, the company will have no official presence at the event, and gamers should not expect any announcements.
As for what Bungie is currently creating, last week, new details about the company's first post-Halo game came to light. Code-named Destiny, the game is contractually obligated to be a massively multiplayer online-style shooter, which will launch exclusively on the Xbox and its successor during fall 2013, with subsequent installments to launch every second year thereafter for Sony's consoles and PCs. Bungie has not detailed release plans or platforms for its first series for Activision, and these plans were only current as of April 2010.
Bungie will not be the only high-profile developer to forgo making announcements at the annual geek gathering. Valve will be at the show, but is not planning to unveil anything new, while Respawn Entertainment is skipping it altogether.
