Bungie bought themselves back from MS under the caveat that they make two additional Halo games for Microsoft - ODST and Reach. After that they're free to develop games as they see fit, more or less.
Activision isn't the sort of studio to do that kind of thing, though - they'd just axe your entire company.
And I say all of this with the caveat that we still know basically nothing.
