Kotick: Bungie is the last high quality indie dev left photo

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has said some outrageous things in his time -- ranging from stupid to downright evil -- but this comment, in which he essentially discredits Valve, Epic, The Behemoth, Gearbox, Ninja Theory, Gaijin Games, Jon Blow, and basically every other indie developer on the planet, takes the prize. Kotick has called Bungie the "last high quality independent developer" in the world.

Bobby Kotick insults every indie developer on the planet... except Bungie [CVG]
