Video: Bungie founder, team surface, hint at next game

Jason Jones, the secretive co-founder of Bellevue game studio Bungie, emerged for a video the company produced to commemorate its 20th anniversary.

It’s on YouTube, but it’s more than a brief clip. It’s a 55-minute documentary that provides an overview of the company’s history from its start in Chicago through its acquisition by Microsoft and phenomenal success of its “Halo” franchise.

The video comes a few weeks before Microsoft begins promoting its new, post-Bungie Halo game at the PAX conference in Seattle, and reiterates Bungie’s role in creating the franchise.

It also drops a few hints about the new “universe” game that Bungie’s developing for Activision. There’s even a screenshot (below) of a new realm that appears, just after Bungie’s Marty O’Donnell says the new game will be “scary.”

It looks like the upcoming game has renewable energy and some local flavor:
