Activision Inks Decade-Long Publishing Deal With Bungie

Update: SCEA just sent over their statement concerning this news:

"The partnership between Bungie and Activision is a big win for gamers worldwide. Combining Bungie's creativity with the incredible power of the PlayStation 3 will add serious muscle to action gaming. We look forward to extending Bungie's 'next big action game universe' with PS3 users."

Original Story:

Bet you didn't see this one coming. ...then again, maybe you've been expecting such an occurrence after Bungie split with Microsoft a few years back.

In one of the biggest news breaks of the year so far and as reported by CVG, Bungie and Activision have signed a 10-year deal to produce games for "multiple platforms and devices." They will deliver Bungie's "next big action IP" to the market some time soon; this deal gives Activision the exclusive worldwide rights to publish and distribute all of Bungie's creations over the next decade. The developer remains independent and will retain the rights to anything they design, and Activision says this new deal "significantly broadens its global reach." What if that analyst is correct in his prediction? What if Activision really does plan to shut down Infinity Ward and transfer the responsibility for Modern Warfare 3 to Bungie? After all, Bungie is really only known for Halo and although we're talking about two very different styles of FPS...it's still the same genre. But either way, this partnership should be quite fruitful in the future, and we'll all wait with bated breath to see what games come down the pike.  Should be fun.

And yes, it basically says Bungie stuff will finally be coming to the PlayStation platform. Activision doesn't really do exclusivity and there's that "multiple platforms and devices" statement. So, what say you?

I'm surprised that Bungie would consider a contract with Activision after this whole mess with Infinity Ward.

Best of luck to Bungie.

I read that the deal started being worked out about 9 months ago. I wonder if Bungie is just a bit nervous with the recent developments. Hopefully they dotted all their "i's" and crossed all their "t's" in that Activision contract.

There's no way Bungie does MW for Activision. Why put all your eggs in one basket? Activision is all about quantity. Bungies next IP will sell tons on its own, and a MW3 banged out by monkeys in a closet will sell tons too. That's two big sellers instead of one.

So it looks like Activision was trying to prevent IW from doing what Bungie did to MS. The irony.

I only enjoyed the first of the Halo games, but I recognize that Bungie can make a damn fine game. I'm looking forward to seeing what they produce.

...but if it's just a MW2 or Halo clone, I'm gonna get pissy.

That's why Activision didn't want to pay their employees, they need the money to get Bungie on board so they could shut down IW.

But since Bungie is known mostly as a MS developer, it just makes sense for them to take over the Modern Warfare franchise. I've always considered MW to be more of an XBox game anyways, (I don't know why, I just have always associated MW with Xbox players) And the sales figures show I'm not the only one. The MS version of MW2 was outselling the PS3 version 2 to 1.

This will help Bungie get known on other consoles and they are a well known company that will help Activision dig out from under this Sh*t storm they created for themselves.

As for me? I have yet to own an Activision game this generation, and I don't see that changing unless Bungie can come up with some new IP that is absolutely mind-blowing, which I don't see happening anytime soon. The last thing I want to play would be a FPS that shows Soap as Master Chief....

Ch1nook,
What you just said above about MW2 being more for Box Bot's, reminds me of two late-30's aged guys that were heading over to the 360 racks at Gamestop yesterday.

One of them zoomed right in on MW2, grabbed it off the shelf and wildly exclaimed to his buddy...
"Dude, yo dude, do you know what this is"? "Like it's f*cking MW2, man". "Dude, it's MW2"! "This game's so f*cking assume dude, it just is, it's so f*cking awesome, it deserves it's own capital A".

Now, while he's doing all his maniacal caveman grunting, he's also flailing the game around wildly in his hand too.

And just then, he holds it right up against his heart, and then yells out to his buddy...
This game IS the sh!tZ dude, I just gotta have it.
I can't believe they have this game", "I'm about to have a f*cking heart attack, Dude".

At that time I headed to the counter with my bundle of games

But as I passed the 2 overgrown Box Bots, I just to get a little dig in asked him... "should I call 911 for you....DUDE"????

Moral of the story is, Box Bot's may come in all age groups, but some only seem to come with the one narrow same single-mined mentality.
*******************************

(BTW, I was able to pick up Saboteur, Fuel, Crash's MOM & CotT, Afro Samurai, Spyro AHT, 007 Quantum of Solace, and 5 PSP's Silent Hill:Origins, & Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, & Nirvana concerts & got them all all dirt cheap, almost at bargain bin prices).

Off topic for a second:
If anyone who doesn't have them yet, but still want try them out, GS has a 50%off clearance sale right now on these games(and they're all NEW, not used copy's)...

Afro Samurai $8.99
007: Quantum of solace $12.99
Crash: Mind over Mutants $9.99
Crash: Crash of the Titans $9.99

Well, whatever we get from Bungie, expect a crappy port.

They will obviously develop the game for the 360, and then with no prior experience on the PS3, we can expect a hastily ported game. Big Whoop.

Don't be so quick to judge! Bungie already has some PS3 programing experience! Just watch the credits for the game of the year known as Uncharted 2!!
I'm excited to see what they'll be coming up with! To bad it's with Activision. EA would've been a better choice.
Just imagine, a hot new IP from Bungie and ReSpawn trampling the competition under the EA flag developed on the PS3, and then ported to the 360, on 3 discs!

Panic, you too should not be quick to judge. There is no proof that Bungie helped program Uncharted 2. N.D. gave thanks to anyone who helped them in some way, which could be as simple as bouncing ideas off of them on how to do their multiplayer.

Hi Ben. I'm a new user for psxextreme, thought I'd sign up since the community here looks really good. Anyway about this Bungie-Activision deal, I think it's extremely unlikely that bungie will start producing MW games anytime soon. Remember, they are still an independent company and hence still have their own IPs and creative talent. They are not the type of developer that will work on a franchise created by another team. I think the reason that they signed this deal was to get enough funding of their next big project, which they've been keeping under wraps fror a while. I also read on eurogamer that this deal has been in the works for about 9 months!

Bungie's distinct advantage here is that they are independent working for Activision, IW was a wholly owned 'independent' developer. IW was never independent, they only had that illusion, Bungie is independent. Unless they've lost their minds, they'll stay that way, no matter who they sign a development deal with.

Since MS owns the Halo IP, we still won't see Halo on PS3 (not that I personally would want to). But, perhaps some other Bungie property will now make it's way to the Sony side of the force?

The possibility of them making a FPS IP is high. Thats what they are good at. Antivision knows this and will probably push Bungie to make one ASAP. Its all about money and EmpireVision likes making it in bundles.

As for myself, I've never saw the appeal of the Halo series as a whole. The whole plot seems like a bad Sy-Fy movie of the week.

And I will be getting their first game, if it's interesting, used. I feel no need to give Kotic-vision any of my hard-earned money any time soon.

Im willing to bet that part of the publishing deal would be to allow creative control over their IPs. So most likely, unless Bungie creates several teams and has projects going at the same time, that they will make a brand new franchise to call their own before they take on any licensed projects.

what does not liking halo have to do with fanboyism? I had an original xbox with lots of games that I loved for it. Halo was the big original multiplayer shooter, but the SP was still your everyday normal fps.

Not fanboy, anti-fps.

But you don't know whether the fame is an fps. All you know is that a well known developer has signed on to make a game for the PS3. What's not to be excited about?

As for you, champ, how about not posting your anti bungie opinions multiple times in the same thread?

I really loved Halo. It is the game that really got me addicted to shooters. I don't know about you guys though. I'm voting with my wallet and acti isn't gettin another red cent outta me. Unless they start packaging in a gold piece.

I can't figure out why anyone would sign with anti-vision with all the lawsuits they been involved with the last few years.

But seriously now, Bungie had better hire extra lawyers just to go over the anti-vision contract with fine-tooth combs.

Otherwise they'll suddenly feel the texture of braided stretchy material squeezing their voice box's inward as kotex yanks harder on their own Bungie cords.

BTW, just my own gaming opinion(and preference) here, although I did like Halo 3, I hated the more cartoony H-1 & H-2.

This could be bad or this could be good, either way I don't have a good feeling on this.

We'll see what bungie has up their sleeves but to strike a deal with activision thats very suprising.

Do they think that Infinity Ward had anything other than enthusiastic hopes and dreams for the future when they signed up with Activision?

Some learn from the mistakes of others. Some are too dumb.
