ODST not enough to fill your Halo fix? Don't worry -- seems Bungie will continue producing more Halo 3 content in the future. "Halo 3 took two and a half years to make, and we're still working on it," producer Allen Murray said. "We'll probably be working on it for two more years."
Some may be wondering why Bungie felt a need to break away from Microsoft if they seem content working on the Halo series for all of eternity. According to Bungie's GDC panel, the team is currently working on a number of projects, something Bungie never had the capacity to do. Since then, the team has expanded considerably, allowing Bungie to pursue non-Halo projects.
Bungie's growth seems to parallel the path of another acclaimed FPS developer: Valve. Perhaps Halo can follow Half-Life's footsteps: expanding episodically, whilst introducing innovative concepts like Portal.
