Posting on his personal blog, Bethesda Game Studios production director Ashley Cheng has said he can "only imagine how much it will cost to snag" Bungie's next title.
Because of this he believes there are only a handful of publishers who can "afford to publish" the game. These include Microsoft, Activision, Ubisoft, EA Partners, Bethesda and Sony. He adds that Sony would be "interesting. Unlikely".
