Does Phoenix have to do with Bungie's next game?

[quote][b]Posted by:[/b] RyanW Phoenix. This is just a hunch for what had just happened. I'm still friends with DeeJ from the Ride Along. As I was playing BFBC2 with some friends I get an invite from him for a game named "Phoenix." I sent him a message asking what Phoenix is. [url=http://gyazo.com/27801a122ad75cdc6a4fb59afda0be83]His response.[/url] I did some research and [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_(video_game)]this [/url] is all I can find on a game named Phoenix. Nothing xbox related(Besides a port to the original xbox back in 2005). So something is obviously up. [url=http://bungie.wikia.com/wiki/Phoenix]I did more research and this came up[/url] [/quote] [Edited on 09.16.2012 7:46 AM PDT]

  • I'd say that most likely possibility is that Phoenix is the internal code name for the the Destiny alpha, in the same way that Pimps at sea was used as the code name for Halo 3. Phoenix itself was supposedly cancelled a while ago because it was "fun for about five minutes." Perhaps a few ideas might have been salvaged, but we don't know enough about what phoenix in it's original state to make further conjectures.

  • Not sure if it's been said. But in one of the Podcasts it was mentioned that every Halo game was code named Phoenix at one time or the other during Dev. Looks like they're just using the code again.

  • It has been confirmed for awhile that the muscular/skeletal structures of the characters in bungies new IP are much much larger than average beings. The devs at Bungie nicknamed the project "pheonix", as in Marcus Pheonix from gears of war, because of the characters large stature. I thought this was old news, I guess not.

  • This seems to be very plausible as an Aerospace game. But Destiny? Highly doubt it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] OneDeadCaveMan [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] spartain ken 15 I am hoping the game is an RTS or atleast an FPS. I thought Phoenix was supposed to be some kind of RTS if I remember correctly and it makes sense seeing the faction shirts. Also lucky, Deej always removed me from his friends list after carnages. I never knew he kept anyone. [/quote]RTS? I'm not a big RTS guy, but as long as it's available on consoles, I trust Bungie.[/quote] I would love a good RTS on console. Something like Myth but with aliens would be cool. But generally RTS games play better on the PC.

  • OP, if you are DeeJ friend on XBL, then you should be able to compare games played. To which, he was probably playing an arcadey game called pheonix (the one you linked).

Still, it would be pretty great if a new (or re-attempted) game was revealed because someone sent a game request to the wrong guy.

  • *waits for Bungie emplyee to comment* Dis gun be gud. Seriously, though.... This is intriguing. Maybe Bungie is secretly finishing Phoenix and porting it to the Arcade to tide us off until Destiny. Maybe Destiny is Phoenix re-visited.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] carby21 Well looks like DeeJ just accidentally revealed the next project. I am not sure if he did actually accidentally invite you to a secret game or if is just him messing with you. What about Destiny? Are Destiny and Phoenix linked? I don't see how two games could be getting made. [/quote] Maybe elements of the game would be integrated into Destiny?

This was all an elaborate test by DeeJ to test your abillity to hold secrets, and by posting to the forums you just failed the test. Ultimate power could have been yours for only a moment of silence...
