Rumor: Bungie and Microsoft Breakup?

"So heres my big secret. You should google Bungie + Microsoft + separation this week. You know that big ol BILLION dollar franchise Bungie has created for Microsoft, to show their appreciate Microsoft is letting Bungie leave. Of course Microsoft gets to keep all rights to the Halo franchise, but as today Bungie no longer part of Microsoft. Ask anyone who works there to search the global address book, they're no longer in there. Microsoft was supposed to release the press release today but if they wait till the 10/6 the impact wont effect the quarterly results. However today is the actual official date and the day the NDAs expire, however you still didn't hear this from me."

i thought Sony fanboys hated Bungie and Halo..................o i gues u just hated them cus it was the 360 they developed for which in the end proves that sony fanboys are retarded

marinelife93583d ago

What did Bungie make before Halo? Was it any good?

marinelife93583d ago

Looks like their other notable titles were Oni and Myth. I played both and neither were memorable.

TheSadTruth3583d ago

myth was great, u probably just are too narrow minded to handle an RTS

and also, this article is a bunch of bullshit because Microsoft OWNS Bungie, Bungie isn't going ANYWHERE

hazeblaze3583d ago

I'm not really sure how this ends up being good news??? There are already awesome FPS devs on other systems so Bungie is not needed on other platforms. And I don't see how it could be good news for M$ either... Bungie vitually saved them from dying last gen & probably this gen too.

I kind of doubt this is true.

is better than halo. play it before you disagree with me. essentially everything that was done in halo was done before in marathon. (except the rechargeable shields)

MADGameR3583d ago

I don't care if Bungie leaves MS or not. Does'nt that suck for Halo fans? I would'nt be surprised if I see Halo 4 going multi plat? THEN say who has no games? LOL!

Your dreaming again.

Live on XboxLive,
Dream in Sony's world.

Marathon sucked beans

This story needs removed. Bungie was acquired by Microsoft in 2000.

The only way Bungie is going anywhere is if Microsoft sells them.

You mean good news for Sony.

"Ask anyone who works there to search the global address book" I just did.. and the person told me this is bull $h!t that smells like a Sony fanboy that confused caca with dark chocolate.

MikeGdaGod3583d ago

i just wanna know what you'll say if it is true???

i know it's highly non-likely, but still. will you finally apologize for being so nasty?

you keep taking this stuff too serious and you'll run up your blood pressure. relax its just games.

sanderFVCKINcohen3583d ago

Or more like a fly who its both honey & Sh!t and cant tell the difference!!!

Naruto3583d ago

Also Microsoft is not currently denying this. Usually they address things like this.

BIadestarX3583d ago

Actually Microsoft does not comment on Rumors.. specially rumors like this one. Big corporation responses usually take a lot of planing and meetings... they just can't go nutz everytime a Sony fanboy starts ar rumor like this one... Do you know why they call this a rumor? Because there is no way to verify this... do you know how this guy cameup with this conclusion? "You should google Bungie + Microsoft + separation this week." do you know how he is trying to make people verify this is true? "Ask anyone who works there to search the global address book"...
now tell me.. who did you call at microsoft to do this?... better yet... do you think that "anyone" at microsoft would know about "bungie"? lol.. seriously you people just believe anything you hear...

ktchong3583d ago (Edited 3583d ago )

this rumor just came out TODAY, less than 24 hours ago.

Most likely, this rumor has not even reached Microsoft/Bungie yet.

JasonXE3583d ago

up rumors and use google to verify it.

ChaosKnight3583d ago (Edited 3583d ago )

I am quite skeptical on this... As much as Halo is a major franchise, Microsoft isn't just going to let a business they've bought go like that... I can see employees of Bungie quitting or something and going to other game companies, like what occurs after most games are released, but to say Microsoft just invested millions if not billions of dollars into the company and they give it up in... what seven year? I dunno. (Also I'll wait for M$' official comment as this was only posted a couple hours ago)

Then again, I don't really care as I'm not a big fan of Halo anyways, even if i got 3 =P.
