Bungie Denies MS Acquisition Rumor

Bungie CEO Pete Parsons tweets a denial of the rumor that Microsoft was attempting to re-acquire Bungie, the developer they owned from 2000 to 2007. It's not clear is he is refuting the entirety of the report or of certain aspects of it, as his response to a tweet saying "Rumor: Microsoft has been in talks to acquire Bungie multiple times but they fell through each time due to Bungie's high price" was all of three words:
This is false.

Well, Microsoft may have made an offer, but why the hell would Bungie ever agree to any merger/sale ever again? They had massive problems with Microsoft the first time, as well as Activision/Blizzard.

Somehow, I doubt this is false. I can see the smoke from the fire burning in the distance.

Its only false because they didn't come to an agreement. which would have been in Bungies best interest to sell.

It is false because Pete didn't think the price was too high.
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.
