Bungie launches new program to help independent developers

Bungie Aerospace

Bungie Aerospace, a new project from the creators of the Halo franchise, was hinted at earlier this year. Now the developer has revealed it is a program to help independent developers.

The specific focus will be on mobile and social games. The studios that work under Bungie Aerospace will have creative freedom in addition to resources such as the Bungie.net website and a huge gaming community.

Pete Parsons, Bungie COO, expressed the new possibilities this will create for both his company and independent developers.

"Bungie has always been passionate about making and playing great games, regardless of platform," he said. "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."

Bungie Aerospace’s first partnership will be with developer Harebrained Schemes. The studio is run by Jordan Weisman, best known for working on MechWarrior and Shadowrun. The company’s first title will be Crimson, which is set to launch this summer on iOS and Android devices.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
