If you don't know about the whole deal with Activision dumping IW's West and Zampella after accusing them of things (which may or may not be true), and then half of the studio leaving, then... I guess I'm telling you know. Some have gone to West and Zampella's new Respawn entertainment. Meanwhile, most of the remaining IW employees have filed a suit against Activision for withholding bonuses in the hopes of keeping them "hostage". Several lawsuits have been filed throughout this fiasco.

And then this morning Bungie announces a ten year partnership with Activision, a company which is being almost universally hated upon.

Thoughts? I think this will make an interesting dilemma for people who love Bungie but hate Activision.

Isn't withholding bonuses legal? They're bonuses after all.

They're claiming that they were promised the money and it is being withheld so that Modern Warfare 3 will be completed, which is a breach of contract.

I have no clue if it's legal or not, but that's what they're filing.

Coz they are the new (old) EA who buy up developers, close the best ones down whilst harvesting the best talent, can the games most people really want to see whilst milking franchises to death to make money and generally get too big for their boots.

I'm glad the latest EA isn't like the old EA/present Activision!

I'm a Bungie fan, and I don't like Activision. That said, there really isn't a dilemma for me. I'm just not going to buy any new Bungie games. While the games they make will be top-notch (and completely under their own control), it's not worth giving my money to Activision.
