Bungie Developing Title for Activision to Launch on Major Consoles and PC

There’s no doubt that publisher Activision has been on a bit of a roll as of late, especially with mega-hits like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and more recently, Call of Duty: Black Ops breaking records in the entertainment market. But, that’s obviously not going to stop them from focusing on the future, and one way to make sure that you have a strong library of titles coming down the pipe is to secure strong developers. Bungie, the makers of Halo, were picked up by Activision not too long ago, and now it looks like Bungie’s ready to go multi-platform, more than likely thanks to a big push from Activision.

In a recent slide, shared during a financial conference, Activision showed off what they’ve got planned, as far as main titles are concerned. Obviously, the next MMO from Blizzard will take a huge share out of the gaming market when it launches in the near future, but the main takeaway from the slide, which you can see below, is that Bungie’s upcoming title will not only launch for the major consoles, but it will also make an appearance on the PC, too.

Bungie, which helped propel Microsoft’s original Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles to huge popularity thanks to the Halo franchise, has always kept a tight lid on their current projects, and there’s no surprise that only a select few know what the studio is working on right now. Of course, considering Activision is involved, the jokes regarding some kind of “Call of Halo” have already begun. However, what’s certain, is that both Bungie and Activision are expecting another blockbuster out of the parternership, and with Bungie’s past as an indicator, they more than likely will get nothing short of that.
