Bungie Cutting Ties
"Bungie may be going solo again"
Published: 3rd October 2007 | Source: DailyTech |
Yesterday, rumors started of Bungie possibly cutting its ties with Microsoft when the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that the deed was done, with Microsoft wanting to wait until at least the end of the week for the official announcement. They apparantly received an e-mail that said the following:
Gaming magazine Game Informer checked with their own sources and found that the deal was made this past Monday, with Bungie shareholders buying back the company for "an unstated, but significant amount of money." In addition to this amount, Microsoft will keep the rights to Halo 3 as well as "the right of first refusal on future games."
Obviously, Microsoft was unwilling to comment on the validity of this news.
