10-Year Alliance Expands Global Reach for Leading Game Developer Across Multiple Platforms

Kirkland, WA and Santa Monica, CA — April 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — 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.”

Die näste IP kommt als Multiplattform Titel.Der Move gefällt mir gar nicht nach dem ganzen Theater mit Infinity Ward.

Die näste IP kommt als Multiplattform Titel.Der Move gefällt mir gar nicht nach dem ganzen Theater mit Infinity Ward.

Bin mal gespannt welches andere Studio als Unterstützung herhalten muss, um eine jährliche Neuauflage der IP zu garantieren :freak:

Wahrscheinlich keins, da dort ja extra die Unabhängigkeit von Bungie erwähnt wird. Sogar die Rechte an den IPs verbleiben demnach bei Bungie.
Ich glaube kaum, dass die Bungie Führung so dumm sein wird. Die konnten sich ihren Partner nach dem Erfolg von Halo quasi aussuchen und werden auch nur einen Vertrag abgeschlossen haben, wenn sie ihre Freiheiten haben, sonst hätte man auch bei Microsoft bleiben können.

Mit dieser Bekanntgabe wird wahrscheinlich auch das IW Disaster vorerst in den Hintergrund rücken. Da hat die Activision Führung alles richtig gemacht.

Zehn Jahre finde ich ziemlich lange. Mir kam es so vor, als würde man im Gaming Business nur kürzere Deals machen.

Ein Deal mit dem Teufel also - enttäuschend.

Der Rechtsstreit um COD enthüllt Bungie's Zukunftspläne

-Massively multiplayer style, sci-fantasy action shooter series codenamed Destiny.
-Four games releasing in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019.
-Four expansion packs releasing in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.
-The main games will be retail.
-There will be other DLC, subscriptions, and value added services.
-The first game will be an Xbox 360 and "Xbox 720" timed exclusive.
-Activision and Bungie are considering a PS3 version of the first game in 2014.
-The second game is targeted for 360, 720, PS4, PS3, and Windows PC, though the contract notes that some of those SKUs may be dropped if they decide they are not worthwhile or not technically feasible.




Activision shall have the right to terminate this Agreement without penalty upon written notice to Licensor in any of the following instances: after the launch of Destiny Game #1 if retail sales of Destiny Game #1 on a sell-through basis have not reached at feast five million (5,000,000) units (across all SKUs, regardless of the method of distribution) during the first six (6) months following commercial release; at any time after the launch of Comet #2 (across all SKUs) for any reason in Activision's sole discretion; in the event Licensor's "l-lalo: Reach" game (currently under development and to be published by l\/licrosolt) ("Halo: Reach") does not commercially release in 2010, unless Microsoft unilaterally determines to not release Halo: Reach for other than i_icensor's failure to deliver per Licensor's contractual obligations; in the event Halo: Reach fails to score a game rating of at least eighty (80) according to gamerankings.com or metacritic.com as measured one (1) month after release; or if retail sales of Halo: Reach on a sell-in basis have not reached at least six miilion (6,000,000) units during the first six (6) months following commercial release

Auch interessant hätte Reach keine 80+ Wertung oder keine 6Mio Einheiten in 6 Monaten verkauft hätte Activision den Vertrag auflösen können.


Schade das es eine 360,PS3 Version gibt,da wird der 720 Port im Verhältnis wohl nur ne Art PC Version.Da der Vertag 2010 unterzeichnet wurde wird kein Wii-u erwähnt.
