Microsoft Reacts To Activision, Bungie Deal


Posted April 29, 2010 - By pklepek

 Halo: Reach

Bungie is still working with their former owners, Microsoft, on Bungie's potentially last Halo game, Halo: Reach. Activision and Bungie's decade-long publishing partnership for an upcoming intellectual property comes as Halo: Reach is about to enter beta for a select number of users.

What does Microsoft think about the deal? The company has issued this brief statement:

"Our partnership with Bungie as a first-party developer for Xbox 360 remains unchanged," said a company spokesperson over e-mail this morning, "and right now we’re deeply engaged with them on the development of 'Halo: Reach,' which is poised to be the biggest game of 2010."

Activision was unlikely the only company Bungie spoke with about their post-Halo plans. For whatever reason, however, Bungie chose to go with a partner other than Microsoft for this one.
