Bungie officially unveils Aerospace
No, it’s not a game, but a resource partner program for mobile indie devs.
Bungie has unveiled the first details about its long-rumored mystery project, Aerospace, and we can safely say it’s a new distinctive direction from the famed Halo devs.
Bungie Aerospace isn’t the studio’s next big franchise, but is instead a beginner stage of a brand new venture for smaller indie studios, which is created to help them get social and mobile games published and noticed.
According to Bungie, the Aerospace project is prompted to offer studios the “creative freedom and the resources they need, like access to the Bungie.net platform and an audience with the incredible Bungie community, to launch their entertainment experiences into orbit”.
“Bungie has always been passionate about making and playing great games, regardless of platform,” said Pete Parsons, Bungie COO. “Bungie Aerospace will allow us to explore game creation in multiple formats with some amazingly talented teams. Now that we’ve returned to our roots as an independent studio, we are in a position to launch Bungie Aerospace to support, foster, and elevate like-minded, independent developers.”
The studio’s first bid project is due with Seattle-based Harebrained Schemes, whose upcoming game is called Crimson and is set to arrive this summer on both iOS and Android devices.
