Take this with a grain of salt, but the creators of popular first-person shooter Halo may be working on a new online game for iOS and Android devices. As noted by TouchArcade and GameInformer today, a new filing at the USPTO confirms Bungie Aerospace has trademarked “Crimson”, a “computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones.” Sounds intriguing, but what’s Bungie Aerospace? The company is likely a subsidiary of the “real thing” Bungie, and that’s already been incorporated in Delaware and Washington. Mounting speculation suggests that this new company is the official mobile division of Bungie, something that the Halo developers hinted several times in the past. Bungie has been busy hiring and opening positions for mobile developers in the past months, so it seems pretty clear at this point that something in mobile is going on. And mobile these days means two things: iOS and Android. If Bungie is really working on a new mobile game, than we can assume it’s most definitely coming to the iPhone or iPad.
Really excited about this, i’ve always trusted Bungie to make a solid game and hopefully whatever Crimson is will be no different. Viticci also made the comment ‘A new iOS game would sure make for a big announcement at a certain Apple event in September.’ and I think it would be interesting to see if this pan’s out at all, we’ve already got stunning games like Infinity Blade and Rage and adding a game from Bungie to the mix would make iOS an even more compelling gaming platform than using Sony’s Experia Play where the most notable game available as of now is Crash Bandicoot, it would also be insane not to launch the new iPhone with the A5 processor, putting it at par with the iPad 2. Whether it happens or not is a different story, nevertheless it would be nice to see Apple and Bungie reunited again since Halo was first introduced as a game for the Mac and now Apple finally have a great gaming platform.
