This could be great for the Destiny franchise, Bungie have said they do not want to make Destiny 3 but have D2 as an ever evolving game, With a cash injection from Microsoft this could deliver something great.

TBH, I'd be surprised if this went anywhere. Even if the talks are legitimate, Bungie has left MS before and has ceased its agreements with Activision to achieve independence.

I just don't see them joining a big company anytime soon.

Makes sense for a lack lustre game thats supposed to be their cash crop. Their D2 player base and leaving in droves due to its repetitveness and the fact they are removing 2 years of content. I dont even think that is legal!!! I paid for those 2 years of content and now its going.

As I said before...and will KEEP ON SAYING.....there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the current Halo games from 343.


However it would be nice to see Bungie get back into Micro$oft.

Well its subjective. I think 343 are terrible at the franchise. But I loved the MMO game AiON which most of the world hates... life goes on, but I will disagree with you always on 343 until they prove me wrong.

Also MS has been trying to buy back Bungie for years, its not just a recent thing.
