Hey, look, more digital prick-teasing, courtesy of Bungie. Can't say I'm the biggest fan of this type of shameless hype-mongering, but then, there are no doubt clues/leads as to what this all means scattered throughout this latest update, so I can post it and call it a...public service announcement. If anyone's in the mood to speculate madly, I'm just going to throw my hat in and remind you that while Americans may think "maintenance" when you hear Superintendant, it can also be a rank in the police/prison service. Just some food for thought.
