You drive me crazy, Bungie

The Guys at Reach Actual are not exactly the most eloquent of bloggers are they? First they gave us the soon to be classic when we know what it means “Indian Ocean: Present Day” and now we get this one line post:

steve cotton is working on one of the craziest things ever in a halo game”

Hmmm, if that’s not a tease, I’ve never been tickled, nor watched a Britney Spears video.

Bungie’s Activision Press Release

Bungie’s Activision Press Release:


10-Year Alliance Expands Global Reach for Leading Game Developer Across Multiple Platforms
Kirkland, WA and Santa Monica, CA – April 29, 2010 —

Bungie, the developer of blockbuster game franchises including Halo, Myth and Marathon, and Activision, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, the #1 online games publisher (Nasdaq: ATVI), announced today that they have entered into an exclusive 10-year partnership to bring Bungie’s next big action game universe to market. Under the terms of the agreement, Activision will have exclusive, worldwide rights to publish and distribute all future Bungie games based on the new intellectual property on multiple platforms and devices. Bungie remains an independent company and will continue to own their intellectual property. Additional terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The groundbreaking alliance will provide Bungie its first such partnership since splitting off from Microsoft in 2007, significantly broadening its global reach by providing the resources and support to develop, distribute and release games worldwide on multiple platforms and devices.

Activision will broaden its portfolio with a new franchise from one of the industry’s most creative, successful and proven studios, whose games have sold more than 25 million units worldwide. To date, Bungie’s Halo games have generated approximately $1.5 billion in revenues, according to The NPD Group, Charttrack and GfK. Activision expects this agreement to be accretive to its operating margins as of the release of the first game.

“We chose to partner with Activision on our next IP because of their global reach, multi-platform experience and marketing expertise,” said Harold Ryan, President of Bungie. “From working together over the past nine months on this agreement, it is clear that Activision supports our commitment to giving our fans the best possible gaming experiences.”

“Bungie is one of the premier studios in our industry and we are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with their talented team over the next decade,” stated Thomas Tippl, Chief Operating Officer of Activision Blizzard. “Bungie has developed some of the most compelling and successful games, multiplayer experiences and thriving fan communities, and this alliance underscores our long-standing commitment to foster the industry’s best creative talent. Our unprecedented partnership with Bungie will enable us to broaden our pipeline of exciting new games as we continue to strengthen our industry position and pursue long-term growth opportunities.”

What’s wrong with picture Stephen?

So for some strange reason apparently Bungie thought it might be wise to promote Halo using Stephen Colbert … may be it’s me not knowing much about America but I would have thought this was a target market mismatch…. either way, it didn’t happen. Either way, the internetz appeared to be talking about it so Bungie did this mock up of Mr Colbert as a spartan.

Personally I think the joke’s too high brow for most 13 year olds…

In other news I found this awesome picture at Cruel Legacy

It’s of BS Angel if you didn’t know…..
