Bungie has refused to comment on whether its first post-Halo: Reach release is being developed for PS3 - but hasn't taken the opportunity to deny it, either.
Since separating from Microsoft in 2007, the firm is free to develop on multiple platforms - and the rumour mill is rife that its new title will be available on Sony's console.
However, when CVG put the question to Bungie community boss Brian Jarrard, he said the decision was "undefined right now".
He told CVG:
"I mean, I think our whole future's kind of undefined right now and it's definitely not something we're going to be comfortable getting into too much detail about.
"We've had another team internally [other than those making Reach] for quite a while now - they've been working on the genesis of what will become our next big thing.
"It's a little premature to get into specifics, but you know I think we have a really good mix of old blood and new blood in the studio."
The second and final instalment of our interview with Bungie will be up on CVG later tonight. You can check out part one here.
