Were it so easy

One is quick to forget a Bungie before they released Halo.Treblaine said:Interesting idea. HAWX and the X-series have consistently garnered only T-ratings but while I think it is a safe bet that Bungie's new game will be heavily focused on flying and/or space simulation, I think they'll give up their guns when you pry them from their cold dead hands. First Person Shooting is in bungie's blood, it's in their DNA, they have never made a game without FPS-ing (they did not make Halo Wars).
It is only my most wishful thinking, but my best case scenario would be the Battlefront 3 there never was, or the next Rogue Squadron in a completely new universe. If there is more traditional infantry combat on foot then it is possible to tone down the blood or other factors and still have lethal gun on gun combat. Battlefront 2 got a teen rating so I think something similar to it still could.I'd love a star-wars/flyfly-esque space shooter where you are dogfighting then land to duke it out toe to toe with guns and grenades. It could add great pace and variety to the games, like how GTA interrupts gunplay with street chases, or RDR interspersed old-west shootouts with horse riding and caravan trails. But that's going to be very hard to square with a T-rating.
Actually, if they ARE REALLY aiming for this T-Rating, that may be evidence they are focusing entirely on a Space sim! Hmm, it definitely is a possibility I'd be open to consider but not something I'd consider a huge likelihood.
