What does Bungie have to say about all this?

Following the announcement, Bungie made available on its web site a letter to its fans, as well as their own FAQ on the buyout.

Those files are no longer available on the official Bungie site.

A search for microsoft at bungie.net shows the links to the two files, but those links are now dead.

When we find an alternative source for these original files, we will add them to this FAQ.
