More Bungie-MS rumor: TeamXbox's sources say it's "more complex"

By now, you must have heard the rumor of Bungie leaving Microsoft that started at 8Bit Since then, Game Informer has reported that their own source stated "for an unstated, but significant amount of money, Bungie shareholders bought the studio name back from Microsoft."

Now, TeamXbox has also reported that they have sources, and that there is indeed something "more complex" going on between Microsoft and Bungie. Here's what TeamXbox said:

"We can't provide further info now (we'd put our sources in trouble) but we're going to tell you that it is more complex than simply Bungie leaving Microsoft or Microsoft letting Bungie go.

There will be an official announcement this week, definitely before October 12th..."

Idiots with no games

good luck with that "big bang" Halo on PS3 fantasy, you know I heard a rumor about Killzone 2 and God of War going to the 360.

Maybe its just company politics, and the core individuals of bungie are leaving. I doubt the bungie name will leave MS.

dnt knw wat the big deal is. Sure they will still only make games for msoft. They seem like a bunch of talented devs would be nice to see them come up with something aside from Halo.

If Bungie is no longer with Microsoft they can make games on the Wii or PS3.. I feel like Microsoft just wants them to make Halo for the rest of their life.. And Bungie is getting tired of it..They want to move on but Microsoft is in their way..

Remember, Microsoft OWNS Bungie. If Bungie wants to go their seperate ways, that's fine, but they will end up having to do it with Microsoft's consent and on those terms. You can bet, at a minimum, those terms won't include Halo IP on a Sony console. If it does, I'll eat my hat, but that simply isn't going to happen. Interestingly, I don't think Sony fans really WANT the Halo series any more than Xbox fans WANT MGS4 for instance. It's more of a joy to see the competition take a hit rather than joy of getting access to another IP. Regardless, The next couple of weeks are going to be interesting.

Im really confused as to what is bringing this whole thing on.

Bungie, and MS are obviously sucessful with each other. I can't see where any of this may be going.

It may have something to do with "Big Bang", but I really don't think any of this really involves Sony.

The next week is going to be interesting I think.
