Halo creators hint at MMO being their next project

Now that Bungie’s involvement in the Halo series is kaput, everyone’s wondering what the creators could be up to next. Creative director Joe Staten shed a small flicker on the matter at GDC Online in Austin, Texas today, saying that the next project could have “a world that was always there for you.”

Sounds a bit uplifting for the guys who made Halo, right? Keep in mind that recent rumors have it that the next project will be a shooter-based MMO, so perhaps “uplifting” may not be the right word.
