Activision announced yesterday it had teamed up with Bungie on a ten-year deal to publish the developer’s new IP, while the studio will keep all rights to the property.

We interviewed Bungie in the announcement’s wake. Get a round-up of the entire story, start to finish, below.

And that’s pretty much all that’s happened so far to this point. Activision’s Q1 financial call takes place next week, so expect more details from the deal to drop then.

    Missed a gem on LA Times yesterday, IW were trying to get the same deal as Bungie when everything blew up. Also this great quote from Bobby Schwartz, West and Zampella’s attorney.

    “It’s astonishing how much money Activision had to pay to cover up its horns and pitchforks with a halo”
