There are a lot of rumors surrounding Bungie's mysterious next project. With the Halo torch passed on, many are curious as to what Bungie's first project with Activision will entail -- and what genres it might straddle.

It appears the answer is that the unnamed franchise will be a massively multiplayer game of some sort.

Beyond that tidbit, Bungie's project still remains shrouded in secrecy.
