Bungie Splits With Activision, Keeps Destiny

Bungie Splits With Activision, Keeps Destiny

Bungie announced the split in a blog post Thursday afternoon, and both companies published a joint statement confirming that Bungie will assume full rights and responsibilities for the "Destiny" franchise. What do you think of Bungie parting ways with Activision on Destiny? From here on out, Bungie will be going it alone when it comes to Destiny, unless of course it decides to partner with another publisher down the road. What followed (four years later) was Destiny and more recently Destiny 2 being developed by Bungie and published by Activision. The transition of publishing from Activision to developer Bungie will be "as seamless as possible".

Many are hoping the split from Activision will solve their personal bugbears with the game, though whether we'll see a massive overhaul of Destiny's business model, or a meaningfully different experience for players, is very uncertain.

Bungie made a statement on its website that the two sides are working on a transition plan for Activision to transfer Destiny publishing rights to Bungie. Bungie has also expressed an increased interest in branching off into new IPs alongside the Destiny franchise.

"With Forsaken, we've learned, and listened, and leaned in to what we believe our players want from a great Destiny experience".

Running Destiny entirely on their own will be a big task for Bungie but the company is not short of money and already has a $100 million deal with Chinese company NetEase to make another brand-new game. But you can let us know for sure - we're on Facebook and Twitter for your correspondence needs. Activision has been on a cost-cutting spree of late, including disquieting reports of cost cuts at Blizzard that could impact future game development. Bungie left Microsoft in 2007 to find more creative freedom and then promptly hopped into bed with Activision, which was a surprise to say the least.

Activision now has Call of Duty as it's only owned IP.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens, but regardless, this is certainly an exciting announcement.
