Bungie Denies XBLA and ilovebees2 Rumors

In Bungie.Net’s weekly update, they stated that they currently aren’t working on an Xbox Live Arcade title and that they aren’t involved with the ilovebees2.com website.

“We got a lot of inquiries about www.ilovebees2.com and I would like to say for the record that it’s a fake. Or at least that it has nothing to do with us. I mean for one thing, you have to figure that if we were doing a secret vial campaign, we wouldn’t call it ilovebees, because you know, that wouldn’t be terribly secret.”


“More rumorbusting! A long-legged, long-lived rumor is that we’re hard at work on an Xbox Live title. We’re so not. Lord knows we play too much Live Arcade, but our entire team (with the exception of a couple of Vista guys) is cranking away on our next project. That doesn’t mean we’ll never do a Live Arcade title, or that somebody else might not convert one of our old titles (Myth and Oni belong to Take 2) but we personally are not making a Live arcade title at this time.”

Who knows if Bungie is telling the truth though? They could be striving for the whole “let’s do something so obvious that people don’t expect us” routine, but then again they could be telling the truth. We’ll all just have to wait for that countdown to finish and hopefully some more light will be shed on the subject.
