Bungie's ten-year publishing agreement with Activision will bring the next game from the famed-developers of Xbox 360 exclusive Halo to all platforms.
"Today we are very proud to announce a ground breaking ten year partnership between Bungie, one of the greatest developers in the world and the makers of Halo, with Activision, the number one video game publisher, who will bring the new intellectual property to fans worldwide across all platforms," said Thomas Tippl, Chief Operating Officer of Activision Blizzard.
The deal, termed an "alliance" by both Bungie and Activision executives, took nearly a year to lock down, Tipple said.
"We are always looking at opportunities to bring great games to gamers world wide there are very few studios in the world of the calibre of Bungie, with the track record of making great games that sell," he said. "As such we began discussions with Bungie about nine months ago..."
Harold Ryan, president of Bungie, said the deal will allow the "alliance" to bring their next game and "universe" to the widest audience possible.
