Suspicious content in two of Bungie’s recent news updates have started the rumour mill turning once again.
January 24 Update
First line in the section titled “Halo 3: ODST”:
IDENT PROC 13217.0 MBARAKI.2552
January 31 Update
Again, in the section titled “Halo 3: ODST”:
IDENT PROC 13262.0 MBARAKI.2552
What’s going down in Mbaraki, and what do 13217.0 and 13262.0 represent?
These updates are much in line with Bungie’s style. Other instances similar to this occurred surrounding ‘The Superintendent’ (a series of posts by a mysterious username on B.Net, and Weekly Update news inserts by the AI seen in the full ODST trailer) and ‘The Smuggler’ (Weekly Update news inserts before the release of the Halo 3 map Cold Storage)
