Bungie offshoot Moonshot Games sets off for the Fallen Frontier

There's good reason to pay attention to Moonshot Games. The operation, which spans two studios in Boston and Seattle, is helmed by some prolific ex-Bungie stars. Three members of the Moonshot crew have hand their hands on Microsoft's FPS: Managing Director Michel Bastien worked as a producer on the first three Halo games at Bungie, Director of Technology Damián Isla worked on developing AI for Halo 2 and 3 and Creative Director Rob Stokes was the Design Lead of Halo 3.

The studio's first title, Fallen Frontier, will be making its debut at PAX East this week and it promises to "leverage the very best design principles" from the team's combined experience on the Halo franchise. The arcade action of the game's first trailer certainly makes it seem like "Halo in 2D." We'll find out more when we get our hands on the game this weekend.%Gallery-118558%
