What the hell is Bungie working on? Unfortunately that's not a question it'll answer at this year's E3.
Bungie's millions of fans will just have to make do with what 343 Industries is showing of Halo 4, because the original Halo-makers have confirmed they won't be doing any official business at this June's expo.
"We're not going to be at E3 in any official capacity this year," it confirmed on its official blog.
"Some of us will be there, lurking from booth to booth, but don't expect any announcements."
And so the wait continues, despite reports that Bungie is "making incredible progress" with its new top-secret game for Activision.
