Nope they split from MS. MS just retained the Halo IP.

I personally don't care much for Bungie, they haven't shown that they have much talent to create a great experiance.

Yeah. Halo 2 and 3 were terrible in single-player, in my opinion. The original was okay.

Interested to see their next project to see if they attempt to break from the mold. Halo though I like it is very sub standard in comparison to other games pushing the numbers it does. My brother was playing the BETA today for Reach and it still looks like ****. And Microsoft has to be a little upset.

You know, I could really see Activision having Bungie do a futuristic COD game.

I would bet they are saving the graphical leap for their own IP.

Hope Bungie can work their magic again. They had some awesome games back in the day. Oni, Myth. Halo was k, little boring SP wise. Oh and Marathon.
