Bungie Discusses Possibility of Activision IP

Although Bungie’s 10-year partnership deal with Activision is primarily tied to the Halo developer’s new as-yet-unnamed action game, that doesn’t mean that they won’t be working more closely with Activision’s other developers.

Speaking with UGO.com today, Bungie community manager Brian Jarrard said that the developer could be tapped to work on Activision titles.

"It’s a discussion that might come up, but they partnered with us specifically based on the vision that we have, and the universe and games that we want to bring to the world in the next decade," he said. "Who’s to know if there are other discussions where we have chances to work together in other areas, but that wasn’t one of the core talking points in making this deal."

When asked if any backend technology developed during the deal would be owned by Bungie or Activision, Jarrard explained that the ownership might be in a "gray area."

"It’s pretty hard to quantify because there might be stuff that we specifically do for us, and there might be stuff that stems from collaboration that leverages some technology that they might already have," he said. "I don’t think I can definitively say ’yes’ or ’no’ to that. I think it’s going to be a degree of gray there that it?s just going to be on a case-by-case basis."

However, Jarrad did say that he thinks Bungie will be taking advantage of Activision’s experience in multiplatform development.

"We have the opportunity to tap into their expertise and knowledge base certainly when it comes to things like multi-platform development that we, honestly, don’t have a lot of current experience with."

As far as what platforms Bungie will develop for using Activision’s multi-platform expertise, Jarrard said, "We’ve considered looking hard at any platform that makes sense for the kind of game that we’re trying to make."
