Pimps at Sea was Halo 3 multiplayer alpha test

Playing in the Rumble pit... of RAMPAGE!Bungie“>Frank O’Connor, Bungie.net’s Content Manager, decided to give everyone an answer once people had stopped asking the question, “WTF is Pimps at Sea?” A lot of people saw a bunch of gamers playing the mysterious Pimps at Sea alpha, and since word of someone from Bungie playing it, Halo 3 speculation has been pretty rampant.

Pimps at Sea, eh? We’re pretty sure you can guess what we’re going to say now, right?

Here’s the text from their website:

Obviously Pimps at Sea is a codename for something else right now (Halo 3, dur). So when we do actually begin work again, on the epic life-changing experience that the “real” Pimps at Sea promises to be, nobody will believe us. The Bungie who cried wolf.

Yes, folks. If you were one of the people who saw it, then you saw some members of Bungie alpha testing Halo 3. According to their site, the group, with the lovely participation of Microsoft‘s Xbox Live, were testing out the multiplayer aspects of the game. On the agenda for their brief show on Xbox Live was a four-player version of Halo 2’s Rumble Pit, presumably fitted with Halo 3 goodness.

The game was played by O’Connor and Joe Tung (multiplayer producer) and Michael Bastien (producer). Apparently, they also let some anonymous person play the game. If you’re that said gamer, we congratulate your good fortune, and wish we were you. You lucky son of a gun. In the meantime, while we wait for the actual beta, feel free to read up on the their Pimps at Sea Humpday event, and what happened during their test. Enjoy!
