Bungie confirms E3 absence, not announcing 'Destiny'

Bungie has no plans to show at E3 in an official capacity, nor will the studio announce any new titles at the annual expo.

Bungie will not attend this year's E3 in an official capacity and has no plans announce any upcoming titles at the annual expo, the studio confirmed in the latest Bungie Mail Sack.

Responding to whether the studio has finished its game presentation for the event, one representative stated there were never any plans to start one.

"Nope. We never started one, and we're not going to be at E3 in any official capacity this year. Some of us will be there, lurking from booth to booth, but don't expect any announcements."

The studio is, however, working on a new title according to recently revealed court documents relating to the West/Zamepella vs. Activision case. Bungie is developing a massively multiplayer-style sci-fi game called Destiny, contracted to "be compatible with the Xbox 360, Xbox 720 and the Sony PlayStation 4," as well as PCs. It is scheduled to release in 2013.
