Look at how Activision treats its developers!” Why would any studio want to sign with them?” Just two of the comments MCV has heard in recent weeks as the Infinity Ward conflict slowly unfolded.
So the announcement today that Activision has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal for a forthcoming new IP from halo developer Bungie is all the more notable. And Bungie's president Harold Ryan is certain that his studio has made the right choice.
As an independent developer this alliance allows us the opportunity to bring our IP and universe to the largest possible audience,” Ryan stated.
This is amazing opportunity for both companies – we are always looking to bring our properties to a worldwide audience and Activision is the best partner for this.”
