A source claiming to be an ex-Bungie staffer has supposedly revealed the studio’s next big project. According to the source, Bungie, now under an exclusive contract with Activision, will soon be releasing a science-fiction, first-person MMO. Currently under the codename “Tiger” (with the working title of Destiny), the game will have a brand new engine and unique matchmaking tech. The source claimed to have worked at Bungie up until a string of 30 layoffs of contract employees, which is common in the industry, although Bungie has released a contrary statement on the matter.
“the claim is false. Bungie has never been asked to lay off any employees or contract employees by our publisher, Activision-Blizzard, for any reason. The talented professionals who grace our offices day in and day out are the lifeblood of Bungie – our most cherished commodity – and the unsubstantiated rumors posted today are in direct opposition to the culture and values that we believe make Bungie an exceptional place to work, and to call home.” read Bungie’s Statement.
