This was confirmed by Eurogamer yesterday Microsoft had some suspicious negotiations to repurchase Bungie, but nothing more straightforward than reality. Destiny developer Pete Parsons denies these claims.
Pete Parsons calls the allegations “false”
According to Parsons, the confirmations are incorrect, which casts doubt on the confirmations of the media and its sources.
This is false.

Microsoft owned Bungie between 2000 and 2007, where the study developed Halo, Halo 2 and Halo 3. It continued to develop Halo 3: ODST from 2009 and Halo: Reach from 2010.
In the same 2010, Bungie signed a ten-year publishing contract with Activision for the franchise Fatealthough the association ended early when the companies split in January 2019.
Other details that have remained in the box are that the alleged negotiations between Microsoft and Bungie should add Destiny 2 exclusively to the Game Pass, but the situation seems to be clear.
