After this morning’s groundbreaking announcement of a deal that gave Activision publishing rights to Bungie’s upcoming new IP, the gaming industry is in awe. Microsoft was quick to point out that their partnership with Bungie for Halo: Reach would remain unaffected. Now, it’s Sony’s turn to give their thoughts on this jaw-dropping announcement.
Via his personal Twitter account, Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media for Sony Computer Entertainment of America expressed his approval of this decade long deal, which grants Activision publishing rights to Bungie’s new IP:
Congrats to Bungie. Marrying their creative minds and incredible talent to the power of PS3 will be like giving PS3 fans Halo on steroids.
I myself, like many PlayStation fans, have never been a fan of the Halo series. However, there is no denying that Bungie is an infinitely talented development studio and we are very much looking forward to whatever they bring to the PlayStation 3, or its successor, seeing as though the deal is for a total of 10 years.
