Bungie Announces It’s Splitting With Activision But Keeping "Destiny"
Destiny 2 is one of the biggest games on the planet. Bungie struck gold with the game after creating Halo for Microsoft. After Bungie left the Halo series, they teamed up with Activision to bring the world Destiny. The game had several expansions that kept fans addicted before launching Destiny 2 in 2017. A year and a half later, the game is going strong thanks to expansive updates, raids, and tons of multiplayer adventures. With Destiny 2 performing so well, Bungie felt that it was time to take the control completely. The company announced that they have assumed full publishing for Destiny, effectively ending their relationship with Activision.
“When we first launched our partnership with Activision in 2010, the gaming industry was in a pretty different place,” Bungie said in a statement. “As an independent studio setting out to build a brand new experience, we wanted a partner willing to take a big leap of faith with us. We had a vision for Destiny that we believed in, but to launch a game of that magnitude, we needed the support of an established publishing partner.”
“We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision for their partnership on Destiny,” Bungie continued. “Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce plans for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie.”
