If there is a thread about this already, close pls.

Link (http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/14693/Rumor-Bungie-Is-Leaving-Microsoft)

By now, you must have heard the rumor of Bungie leaving Microsoft that started at 8Bit Joystick.com. Well, 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...

Now, I've read that Sony said they will announce something 'ground-breaking' on october 12th... What is going on?

Btw, since its sony, I'd hold my breath that it is something 'ground-breaking'...
Nevertheless. should be interesting in a couple of days...

Maybe Bungie will merge with Team Ninja and produce Master Chief Extreme Volleyball or something like that. (lee63)

Who needs a 4th Halo? 3 is more than enough. Besides, everyone 'finished the fight!!!1!!1!!!!111" already...

Bungie leaving MS i see it as a good thing. Maybe finally they will make a good game.

Sony.

I was just kidding....obviously... but nothing could make the PS3 sell more than Halo 4. It's not happening, but it would be a godsend for the system.

Eh...from what I understand, microsoft completely bought out bungie back in 2000. Bungie can't leave microsoft. Period. It just can't happen, microsoft owns all of their assets. If anything, it would have to be microsoft letting them go.

Sure the bungie employees could quit or something like that, but all of the intellectual property, and even concept work for future games, would still belong to microsoft.

There are plenty of games to play other than Halo. Sony didnt have Halo with the ps2. Not everyone like Halo.

MGS4 is more than enough.

Technically Bungie can't leave MS unless MS sold them... but the individual people could leave and start their own company (See: Rare leaving and starting Radical games).

Didn't bungie make some game where you're an ant or some **** like that, and it came with my long-defective ibook? I'm so retarded, I can't even remember what that game was called.

If they made that game, I think they did, and they make halo, then they're not capable of making good games.

Rare might as well have gone out of business when MS took them in.

Where's another battletoads game?

No insults please.

That announcement is probably the 40gig version it will sell for 399.

I really doubt Microsoft will let their cash cow go. Load of rubbish.

If true sounds like a win for MS no? They get to keep everything Halo, plus they get the first shot at all future Bungie games, plus they got back millions of dollars. Hell a new team may make a better Halo...or not.

Bungie's secret way of continuing the storyline... it's not "halo" anymore.
