Bungie signs a 10 year deal with Activision
Bungie, the developer of blockbuster game franchises including Halo, Myth and Marathon, and Activision announced today that they have entered into an exclusive ten year partnership to bring Bungie’s next big action game universe to market.
You hear that? That’s the sound of a billion jaws hitting the floor.
Under the terms of the agreement, Activision will have exclusive worldwide rights to publish and distribute all future Bungie games based on the new intellectual property on multiple platforms and devices.
Bungie remains an independent company and will continue to own their intellectual property. Additional terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
This alliance will provide Bungie its first such partnership since splitting off from Microsoft in 2007 – and to be honest it doesn’t get much bigger than Activision.
Harold Ryan, President of Bungie had the following to say;
“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.”
Multi-platform? Oh yes!
