Bungie Signs With Activision

Bungie, the studio that made Halo, have signed a ten year publishing deal with Activision. For the next decade all Bungie games will be published by Activision. However, Bungie still retains all their intellectual property and will continue to be an independent company.

The real question now is will Bungie end up like Infinity Ward?

Infinity Ward was owned by Activision and Bungie still will be an idependant company but they will still dealing with the company whose CEO has been quoted saying "We have a real culture of thrift. The goal that I had in bringing a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision about 10 years ago was to take all the fun out of making video games."

Due to Activision's history of making yearly sequels we may end up seeing Bungie being "encouraged" to continue making Halo games. Because we all know that Bobby likes his money and Halo is a hot selling IP.

The Beginning

Greetings dear readers,

I am Tyaust, a guy who now has a blog, (which he promises he won't use as a medium to rant with) to share video game news review and videos on. The Flying Cougar Report is the official blog of Flying Cougar Productions while Flying Cougar Media is our video and music division.

The Flying Cougars originally started out as a small clan for various video games but an idea of doing more than just game came to me, my co-producer Udunnojack, and our friend ICLiiPSI. Thus Flying Cougar Productions was born. It all started with a CoD: MW2 video they had made and I suggested to create a media network to host it all.

From these humble origins we present you with Flying Cougar Productions. Enjoy!
