Part of the plan involved headhunting top-notch content providers to help launch it. Midway surfaced as a likely acquisition, but in June 2000, less than three months after confirming “the Xbox project” to the press, Microsoft cut a check a multi-million-dollar check and Bungie cashed it. Take Two disengaged, taking the rights to Myth and Oni with them. MacAddicts everywhere howled in betrayal. Microsoft, the enemy, now completely owned Bungie and their new shooter.
