Bungie has been teasing Bungie Aerospace for a while now. The filler site and the speculation turned the expectation of Aerospace into Bungie’s next big project after Halo: Reach. Today, to the dismay of some and the joy of others, it was revealed that Aerospace is NOT their next major title.
Bungie Aerospace will be a resource for a slew of mobile and social independent developers to create new and engaging titles for new platforms. Their independent partners will have access to what they need to make these games such as the Bungie.net platform and a connection with the Bungie community. The first announced partner is Harebrained Schemes which will launch it’s first mobile game title, “Crimson”, on iOS and Android devices this summer.
While it’s not a new Bungie-developed game, they encourage that “great games are awesome, no matter who makes them.”

In an interview posted yesterday on Bungie.net, Daniel Blezek, an independent developer, talked about bringing Bungie’s classic to iOS via the Apple iPad. He discussed the issues and challenges of bringing the nearly seventeen year old game to the touchscreen device. Daniel stated that he began working on the port when the iPad was first released back in 2010 and that the game could hit the App Store soon.
Also addressed during the interview were the controls. According to Blezek, they spent a lot of time trying to find a proper control scheme for the game. These included a virtual joystick for movement, the action button under that, primary and alt fire buttons, and weapon switching buttons among others.
Bungie, obviously, has given their support to the effort and iPad users can expect to see Marathon on the App Store sometime soon at no charge. Bungie has promised to let players know when it’s ready.
Oh, and the game is going to be FREE!

Well right now I can’t say it’s been confirmed, but based on the fact that box art has been released for Halo 3: Recon, I think the game may not be a downloadable expansion at all for the popular FPS. Is it going to be a stand alone title, or is this just being released for those who don’t have access to the internet? I guess we’ll just have to keep listening for more details.
