This is just crazy...

Yea MS still own Halo. I am guessing they will let other developer keep making Halo games

They already have a new studio for Halo games.

I'd lol if Bungie works on a new CoD and MS hires Respawn to make the next Halo.

Would be fitting given how many people jump around in MW2 like they're playing Halo!

halocraft of duty post modern futuristic warfare? who actually owns the halo ip is it bungie or microsoft? thatd be funny if halo ended up as a cross console game but im sure microsoft still owns halo. although they could probably bring back their marathon series.

my only concern is with activision influence on bungie. I would have rather seen them be independent.

This really isn't a big deal. It is a pretty simple publishing deal.....at this point at least. Activision will simply publish games developed by Bungie but Bungie will still be choosing its own projects. Based on what I've read of the deal, Activision will have virtually no input into title Bungie developers or the timeframe that they develope those titles in. When Bungie has a completed game, they turn it over to Activision and then it gets marketed to the public and published.

The only thing this deal really means is that Bungie will definately NOT be an exclusive developer for any platform. With Activision publishing, their games will be on every platform on the planet.

"Bungie remains an independent company and will continue to own their intellectual property"

I wonder how long until someone at Bungie tells them to go eat a dick and the lawsuits fly.

Who cares? Bungie sucks and so does Activision. Neither have decent games, let them rot together for all I care. Maybe once they look past the flood of cookie cutter FPS's they'll have a mild chance to succeed.


lol man, all activision and bungie have EVER made is FPS. FPS, man, cookie cutter, generic, cliche, cliche, cliche,cliche

please stop trolling the cag forums.

There will be NO halo games under this deal - microsoft owns that IP. Whatever they're doing, it's brand new. Bungie has done RPGs, RTS games, and third person action games. Halo just happened to be their hit. BUT OMG IT'S FPS COOKIE CUTTER DURRRRRRRRGG JAPAN

Off the top of my head I can think of four franchises Bungie has worked on over the years, and only two of them were FPS. I actually assume whatever they're making won't be a FPS, or at least not primarily a FPS.

Good to see Bungie making this work for them - remaining independent and owning their own IP and taking advantage of the resources Activision can provide.

1: Helluva bump.

2: Activision may be every escort mission, water level, and unskippable cutscene combined incarnate, but I'm betting that Bungie (thinks it) got a pretty fuckin' good deal out of this. Activision needs them a Fuck of a lot more than Bungie needs Activision.

They may own the IP....but that doesn't mean Activision won't put "Call of Duty:" before the name on the box.
