Who else wants to conjecture about Phoenix?
Posted By: spacemonkeyDate: 6/13/02 11:08 a.m.

Here's my theory about Bungie's unannounced game, codenamed "Phoenix":

::WARNING: I am always wrong when I conjecture about anything Bungie-related. I am never right. Your odds, should you choose to put money on this theory, are 15,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1::

Could Phoenix be an RPG? Let's look at Bungie's game history:

Minotaur: Online-Only Fantasy Adventure
Pathways: First Person Shooter
Marathon Trilogy: First Person Shooter
Myth (Duology?): Real Time Strategy
Oni: Third Person Shooter/Martial Arts Extravaganza
Halo: First Person Shooter

Bungie's done a lot of different game genres. Hell, they've even made a fighting game, if you count Weekend Warrior. But the one standout genre they haven't touched (unless you count Minotaur, which I don't think qualifies) is that of Role Playing Game. Phoenix is already rumored to have a fantasy slant, so that aspect of things factors in well. Although the same rumors originally described it as another RTS, we all know Halo started the same way, so I certainly think it's possible.

I, for one, would LOVE to see Bungie do an RPG. Think of all the cool things they did for the RTS genre--the removal of resource management, full 3D, user-operable battlefield camera, tactically-oriented play as opposed to economically-oriented--the list goes on. Imagine what kind of innovation they could bring to the table for an RPG.

Does anyone else have any theories about what Phoenix is/could be?
