The rumors come from a podcast called Game Beat where Jeffrey Grubb was told that there are talks between Microsoft and Bungie. There has been discussions – to acquisition or have a special partnership between Microsoft and Bungie. Although the two companies had not been able to agree on a sale price to do this.
My opinion is that I can’t see the point for Bungie to make that deal now due to cloud gaming, the great partnership with Google. and the huge market in the cloud. It is only a rumour.
Bungie’s CEO Pete Parsons response on Twitter deflated these rumours.
