Activison/Bungie Contract Gives Fresh Details of the Two Company’s Deal

The contract, which was revealed earlier today, brings to light some of what we can expect from the Acti-Bungie deal over the next eight years. The “Destiny” trademark that Bungie filed last year has been revealed as a project under which Bungie will make four “sci-fantasy, action shooter games”. Even more tantalizing is that the first of these games will be a timed Xbox exclusive in fall 2013 with the option for the 360′s successor. After this initial game Bungie has agreed to make the next three “Destiny” games available on the successors of the 360 and the PS3 as well as the PC in 2015, 2017 and 2019. There’s no mention of the WiiU, however.

As if that wasn’t enough, there will be four DLC expansions in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020 codenamed “Comet”. Activision will have the right to take over the “Destiny” IP if Bungie fails to meet its contractual requirements, although it will not be allowed to start more “Destiny” projects until Bungie has completely finished with it.

So, that’s the next eight years of Bungie you can expect. Now we need to know exactly what “Destiny” is. Oh, and of course we now know that the next generation of consoles should be here by at least 2015 or even earlier, for the Xbox at least.
