Halo fans have a lot to look forward to right now, what with the Halo Master Chief Collection coming to PC and the beta tests for Halo Reach already kicking off – not to mention the next game in the series Halo Infinite coming to PC and Xbox Scarlett at the end of 2020. However, even with all this Halo goodness, we’d always welcome something completely new from Halo’s creators.
With original Halo developer Bungie stuck on Destiny 2 for a long time, it’s down to Halo and Master Chief co-creator Marcus Lehto to bring us that new experience. His new studio V1 Interactive and publisher Private Division have just revealed Disintegration – a brand new sci-fi FPS. You can check out the teaser trailer for the game below, which will get a full reveal at Gamescom next month.
“The opportunity to create not only a new game, but this entire studio has been exhilarating,” said Lehto. “It is great to be able to share what this amazing team has been working on, and we can’t wait to introduce this new game that our team is building to the world next month.”
While Lehto served as former creative director at Bungie, and was instrumental in the creation of Halo and Master Chief, his new team at V1 Division features a number of veterans who worked on a different shooter series – SOCOM: US Navy Seals, at Zipper Interactive. The studio was founded by Marcus Lehto in 2014, and Disintegration will be its first game.
The game will be another title published by the Take-Two off-shoot Private Division, which is also responsible for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey – from Assassin’s Creed co-creator Patrice Desilets – and Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds. “We have high confidence in Disintegration,” said Michael Worosz, Executive Vice President and Head of Private Division, “and cannot wait to introduce it as another unique experience that further enhances the Private Division lineup.”

Unfortunately the trailer offers no real insight into the game, and other than Disintegration being a sci-fi FPS due out in 2020 there’s not much we know about it. However, it will apparently be fully unveiled at Gamescom next month, August 20-24, so we’ll know a lot more then.
