New first-games at X06?
Although Microsoft owns several game development studios - Bungie, Ensemble, Lionhead, et al. - we haven't seen much news from them that involves the Xbox 360. Even Halo 3 info has been dormant. Video Game Jocks, however, believes that we'll hear about two new first-party games at X06, Microsoft's Xbox event scheduled for September 27th in Barcelona. One is from Viva Pinata developer Rare, while the other is from Halo creators Bungie. The interesting bit is Bungie's game will, supposedly, not be a Halo title. It may be a sequel to earlier games such as Marathon or Myth, but it may also be a completely new intellectual property. It would be about time, since Bungie has been stuck in the Halo/Marathon universe since 1997.
