Bungie's brand new publishing deal with Activision is already poised to be one of the biggest news stories of the year, but we won't get any new joint details from the two companies at next month's E3 show.

Bungie, the developer that makes the wildly successful Xbox 360 exclusive Halo titles, will likely begin work on its first non-360-exclusive game later this year. That's because it just entered into a 10-year contract with third-party publisher Activision.

However, no one has any idea what the new deal will bring. There were rumors that Activision would fully announce its Bungie plans at the annual E3 trade show, but Bungie community manager has squashed that speculation.

"I don't know where that's come from. I can tell you we're definitely not showing the game at E3. It's definitely our intent to make this announcement and return to business as usual and know that we don't have to worry about our future any more," said Jarrard in an Edge interview.

The developer is currently working on Halo: Reach for the 360. And even though it no longer has exclusive ties to Microsoft's console, Microsoft still holds onto all the rights to the Halo franchise. So don't expect Halo 4 to suddenly be available on the PS3.
