UK, April 29, 2010 - Bungie has just announced a deal with Activision Blizzard, spanning some ten years, that will see the publishing giant releasing the Halo developer's next big franchise.

Bungie President Harold Ryan explained the announcement, saying "We chose to partner with Activision on our next IP because of their global reach, multi-platform experience and marketing expertise, From working together over the past nine months on this agreement, it is clear that Activision supports our commitment to giving our fans the best possible gaming experiences."

Bungie is currently at work on Halo: Reach, a game that's now looking ever more likely to be its last entry in the franchise.

The deal gives Activision the rights to publish Bungie's games for the next 10 years across multiple formats, although Bungie remains independent and will still own its own intellectual property.

"Bungie has developed some of the most compelling and successful games, multiplayer experiences and thriving fan communities, and this alliance underscores our long-standing commitment to foster the industry's best creative talent," said Activision Blizzard's COO Thomas Tippl, "Our unprecedented partnership with Bungie will enable us to broaden our pipeline of exciting new games as we continue to strengthen our industry position and pursue long-term growth opportunities."

Call of Duty: Future Warfare
Developed by Bungie.




No, this does not mean Halo will be on the PS3/Wii, as Microsoft owns the Halo title. Just means Bungie will be making games that are non-Halo after Halo Reach.

But future Bungie games can and probably will be on the other consoles as well as PC.

This isn't part of the 7 step plan... Unless they put the bloody coup they promised here.


Just because they are turning to a bigger company to handle their publishing doesn't mean they are taking over the world. They're just getting help with publishing so they can release their next franchise as broadly as Halo was.

if they've had discussions for so long, I don't think they underestimated Activision's way of doing. It's a good deal for bungie nonetheless to be able to acces multiple platforms for release instead of beeing locked to the 360. I suspect this transition won't be easy however, since they had no experience with different consoles than MAC and XBOX in the past.
