Bungie is Microsoft’s Halo developer. Halo makes Microsoft a lot of money, so obviously Microsoft loves Bungie, but money’s not the only reason. Microsoft Game Studios producer for Halo 3: ODST says that Bungie “spends more time polishing gameplay” than other studios.
“Bungie is all about gameplay.” Cutting said, “They spend more time polishing gameplay than anyone I’ve ever seen.
“They also have incredible artists. The skies and the environments in that game are in my opinion unequaled. They’re a triple A talent up and down, from design to art to execution, they’re awesome.”
“Everything Bungie puts on the table is awesome,” he added.
Bungie is indeed awesome, Mr. Cutting. I think we all have to agree on that one.
