The lights are on
Earlier this week, Bungie formed Bungie Aerospace Corporation, a company headed by Bungie president Harold Ryan. Now Bungie Aerospace Corporation has filed for a trademark "Crimson," which is described in the filing as being related to network and mobile gaming.
According to the clipped language of the filing, Crimson is "Computer game software downloadable from a global computer network; Computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices."
Bungie currently has several job openings related to mobile devices, including a variety of programmers and engineers. As GameSpot points out, Bungie has talked vaguely about its upcoming project, including a talk at GDC Online 2010. There, writer and designer Joseph 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."
We'll have to continue to wait for details on how (or if) Crimson is related to Bungie's upcoming work. They won't be attending E3 next month, so we may have to be quite patient.
