Seems like Bungie was planning on announcing a new title this E3 but their publisher decided to pull the announcement for some reason. The weird thing is that they don't state the publishers name who most would have guessed would have been Microsoft. Being that they recently split from Microsoft and their publisher is unannounced... could it be that it wont be Microsoft?

They were at the Sony Conference (not just one guy but a group of them), Could Sony have signed a deal with Bungie?

Bungie is under a publishing agreement with Microsoft.

MS was expecting Nintendo and/or Sony to show something breath taking, something they needed to do better than. Because they didn't, MS decided to keep the new project under wraps. Besides, this builds suspense that people go rabid over.

My money is on ONI 2

I too think it's ONI 2. If it's going to be a new Marathon game, then that'll be great too. :D

I'm curious about which publisher tho...

The only agreement that Bungie has is that a title has to be published by MS and that Halo belongs to MS, other then that they are a up for gabs studio.
