Halo: Reach is set to be the next big thing to come from Bungie, but it may be the last Halo-related game they create for quite some time, if a statement made to Joystiq is anything to go by.
Lars Bakken, lead multiplayer designer on Halo: Reach said "As far as right now, currently, yes. This is our last Halo Bungie game". He went on to say "Now in the future, who knows? You can never say never, because things change. maybe ten years down the line we decide to make another Halo game, but for right now, yes. This is it for us."
It looks like Bungie want to leave the Haloverse with a bang though, and if initial impressions are reflective of the final product, it's walking on the right path.
