We think our heart might have stopped. Your will too, if you've read the news today (oh boy).
But what we didn't know is that Activision and Bungie have been working on The Biggest Deal Of The Year for nine months. They could have made a baby in that time.
Bungie president Harold Ryan revealed today:
"We chose to partner with Activision on our next IP because of their global reach, multi-platform experience and marketing expertise.
"From working together over the past nine months on this agreement, it is clear that Activision supports our commitment to giving our fans the best possible gaming experiences."
The sneaky beggars. We had no idea. Well, did you?
