CEO of Bungie, Pete Parsons has once again shut down rumours of acquisition talks with Microsoft. Parsons' simple "Nope" tweet is the second statement regarding these rumours.
Rumours about talks between Microsoft and Bungie regarding a potential acquisition just won't go away. Shortly after the confirmation of Bethesda acquisition, some reports stated that Microsoft have been in talks to acquire Bungie multiple times but they fell through each time due to Bungie's high price.
CEO of Bungie, Pete Parsons, responded to these rumours by saying that the reports are false but he did not specify which part of the rumour is not correct.
Today, new rumours about Microsoft's acquisitions of Bungie started to surface but Parsons was once again quick to deny that such talks exist. Once again, Parsons' tweet was simple but straight to the point. "Nope," he tweeted.
This rumour picked up traction after Xbox Era published an article with a couple of interesting details, which may suggest that Bungie is indeed joining Xbox Game Studios but as you can see, Parsons is pretty adamant that these talks are not happening and Bungie will remain independent.
Of course, Xbox fans would probably be over the moon if the acquisition happened since the studio has developed some of the best titles in the beloved Halo franchise.
Bungie is currently busy with their free to play shooter Destiny 2, which is set to introduce a large expansion titled Beyond Light on November 10, 2020.
