This morning at Joseph Staten’s  GDC speaking engagement titled “Writing the Whirlwind”, he had warned the audience that he wouldn’t say one word about the developer’s plans for its first post-Halo game.  But could Bungie’s writer and design director keep his mouth shut…of course not.  When asked he stated:
“I think it’s a shame that we spent so much time working on this world called Halo and then we only let people spend six or eight or 10 hours in it,” Staten said. “Wouldn’t it be great if we could make a world that was always there for you, with lots of stories to tell, like a big, infinite storytelling horizon? Man, that would be great.”

Sounds like an MMO is a brewing. Possibly a Sci-fi MMO? Whatever Bungie has planned there are legions of fans ready and eagerly awaiting.
