Naughty Little GOW leaks plus Bungie love

It appears a version of Gears of War 3 has skipped into the wilds and has been out on the interwebz - guess I'll be avoiding Youtube videos for a while then so I don't have anything spoiled. I recall this thing happened with Halo: Reach as well (did you get any steak?).

I guess it's part of the landscape in which we live these days  - it's too hard to keep a secret these days - well some secrets - no one really leaked what Bungie Aerospace was for ( a few good guesses maybe?) but you get one disgruntled contracter and he might tell you the name of the secret project he'd been working on.

I recall a couple of years back every music mogul on the planet freaked out cos Enimem's new album was leaked to the interwebs - guess it's the turn of Bill Gates!

Today's Update from Bungie is another good bye off sorts:

"We'll be undergoing a metamorphosis of our own. Very soon will change, culminating with the launch of our next universe at some unknown time in the future. The first small steps will be taken soon, with Halo playlist management changing hands on August 2nd, the very same day we plan to deploy our parting thoughts on the last twenty years through a ViDoc titled, "O Brave New Worlds."

Afterwards, we'll be going dark on our studio’s next major endeavor – the creation of a brand new universe. You'll still have a home here should you choose to stay, but our next project demands an unwavering focus. We owe it to ourselves to make something better than we ever have before. We owe it to you, as well.

So, this isn't a goodbye. It isn't The End. Instead, it's the very beginning of a new journey that will stretch the limits of what we are capable of. Ancient engines are now rumbling deep within the heart of our studio, and their energy will power us through the upcoming darkness. Like all dark times ours will be broken first by a single strand of light – a tether reaching out to bind us all together again. One day, we will awaken in a wondrous new place and we will remember just what it was that drew us together at the beginning of it all. We will look up to the heavens, and find hope."
