Why isn't Bungie making this game? What happened?

I fear it won't be the same. I prefer the same people produce it. Who are 343 and how'd they get a hold of Halo 4?

Bungie left Microsoft for Activision.

343 is the alias for Butch Simmons, a 35 year old criminal who does anything he needs to in order to get what he wants. Or so I hear anyway. You see, Butch wanted to be in control of the Halo franchise, but Bungie wouldn't let him have it. Now, Butch could've just shot and killed Bungie, but he doesn't like to over complicate things with murder. So instead, he defiled Bungie's brown eye right in front of their child, Halo, until they agreed to hand over their baby. Bungie eventually let 343 (AKA Butch) have Halo and, to no surprise, Halo was traumatized for life, thus resulting in the horrible lifeless mess you see them teasing us with every few weeks. It's such a sad story.

Actually Microsoft owned all Halo rights. So when Bungie left, MS kept Halo. I'm glad actually. Bungie's past couple Halos have sucked story wise anyway.

I think it's going to be a good thing. I've heard 343 picked up a couple disgruntled Bungie employees on the way too.

Bungie has been in steady decline (look at reach).

It's better someone else is making it.

I'm glad someone else is working on the halo titles now, they might evolve into something fun now. It's not like Bungie was doing a good job at making fun games, they simply released the first good title on Xbox creating a huge fan base for it and kept re-releasing the same game with some addons for years.

343 is mostly comprised of old Bungie employees (Frankie and Urk, to name a few) and is owned by Microsoft, which is why they are making this game and not Bungie (Bungie doesn't own the Halo IP any more.)
I play fighting games. Shooting at stuff is cool too.
