Bungie snubs E3 showing amid Xbox 720 game rumours

Former Halo developer Bungie has revealed it will not showcase at E3 2012

With just days to go until E3 2012 kicks into action, developer Bungie has revealed it will not showcase any new games at this year's LA-based show

Developer Bungie has confirmed it will not be present at this year’s E3 2012 convention in LA despite recent leaks outing details of an Xbox 720 bound game it is developing in conjunction with Activision.

Famed for the iconic Halo franchise before being replaced by 343 Industries for the upcoming Halo 4 release, a title that will be showcased during next month’s E3 expo, Bungie officials have confirmed the company has no plans to formally unveil its next-generation game during this year’s LA-based show.

“We're not going to be at E3 in any official capacity this year," an official Bungie spokesperson has said via its official blog. "Some of us will be there, lurking from booth to booth, but don't expect any announcements."

Earlier this month a contract held between Bungie and publisher Activision was outed online confirming the partnership that will see Bungie develop the first title in a new franchise that will launch simultaneously for the current Xbox 360 and the next-gen Xbox 720 in the latter half of 2013.
