[Rumor] Bungie creating iOS MMORPG called Crimson

The Devs of the best-selling series "Halo", is rumored to creating an iOS MMORPG called Crimson.

An article from Cult of Mac states:
First, some background. Around a year ago, Bungie was tipped to have started a new project, called Bungie Aerospace. Not much was known about it at the time, but it now appears to be a spin-off label of Bungie Studios proper, as the Halo-maker has just incorporated Bungie Aersopace in both Delaware and Washington.

Even more interesting? Bungie Aerospace has just filed to secure a trademark for mobile devices, filing an application to own “Crimson” as a title of “computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones.”

What Crimson actually is is anyone’s guess, but rumor has it that it’s a shooter MMO. Whether it’ll take place in the Halo-verse or not is anyone’s guess, but it would seem absolutely nuts for Bungie to make a mobile game and not release it on the most lucrative mobile platform out there.

In short, here’s what we know. Bungie Aerospace is likely Bungie Studios’ mobile studio. They’re working on a game called Crimson. And it’ll probably be available on the App Store. Let’s just hope this is the triumphant return — if not to Mac, then to Apple — that gamers have been waiting almost a decade for.
Also some info on TouchArcades article about Bungie and a little about the upcoming(?) game.

...and the hype massively outweighs the product, because they released some mediocre cult games decades ago.

This is one of those things, where you try to reserve any and all judgement until we know all about it, anything else is just speculation.

A shooter mmo? Are there any? If this is real then it obviously has to compete with Order & Chaos and I don't think a "weird combination" (cough cough game dev story) would work, let alone sell to get enough players.

That's how it starts. The fever. The DOOT DOOT
