Analyst: Bungie would be "very good fit" to replace Infinity Ward


Bungie's new ten-year deal to have its new IP published by Activision seems to be a good enough reason to replace Infinity Ward, according to one analyst.

moreIn fact, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia seems to think the house that built Halo would be a "very good fit" as a potential replacement as developer of any future Modern Warfare titles.

"We feel that, if needed, Bungie would be a very good potential fit to replace Infinity Ward on development of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise in the future," he said.

But despite that, Bhatia reckons there'd be a "low probability" of this happening anytime in the near future.

Already, Bungie's Joe Staten has said it needed to get the announcement of the deal out there to "break through" the "noise" of what's happened recently at IW.
