Halo Maker's Next Game Coming to 'All Platforms'

The just-announced partnership between Halo series creator Bungie and publisher Activision "will bring [Bungie's] new intellectual property to fans worldwide across all platforms," according to Activision Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl.

Exactly when that new intellectual property will premiere, and what platforms will be available at that time, remains unknown. The deal between the two companies spans ten years, with Activision getting "exclusive, worldwide rights to publish and distribute all future Bungie games based on the new intellectual property" while Bungie "remains an independent company and will continue to own their intellectual property."

Best-known for its work on Xbox-exclusive Halo series, Bungie--which was bought by Microsoft in 2000 and then regained its independence in 2007--has also produced such titles as Marathon, Myth and Oni on platforms including PC, Mac and PlayStation 2.
