Bungie Announces It’s Splitting With Activision And Still Keep “Destiny”
Destiny 2 is now one of the biggest games on the planet. Bungie hit gold with the game after creating Halo for Microsoft. After Bungie still left the Halo series, they teamed up with Activision to bring the globe Destiny. The game got several expansions that kept fans addicted before releasing Destiny 2 in 2017. A year and a half later, the game is going strong due to expansive updates, raids, plus tons of multiplayer adventures. With Destiny 2 performing perfectly, Bungie felt that it was time to take the control completely. The company announced that they currently have assumed full publishing for Destiny, effectively ending their relationship with Activision.
Today, we're announcing plans for Bungie to assume full publishing rights for the Destiny franchise.

“When we first launched our collaboration with Activision in 2010, the gaming industry has been in a pretty different place, ” Bungie said. “As an independent studio set out to build a new experience, we wanted a partner willing to take a big leap of faith with us. We had a new vision for Destiny of which we believed in, but to launch a game of that magnitude, we needed the support of an established publishing partner. ”
