Bungie and Activision have decided to end their partnership when it comes the latest games Bungie has delivered, Destiny series. It has already been eight years since we first got our hands on Destiny, from there, Bungie and Activision have sold over 50 million copies games and expansions to players all around the world. But now, Bungie has decided to go “solo” and will get full publishing rights for Destiny.
“We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision for their partnership on Destiny. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce plans for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie. With our remarkable Destiny community, we are ready to publish on our own, while Activision will increase their focus on owned IP projects.” – Destiny Dev Team
About the question, if PC players will be able to play Destiny from the Battle.net launcher has already been answered by Activision on Twitter.
Destiny 2 will still receive full support on BattleNet and we do not anticipate any disruption to our services or your gameplay experience. – BlizzardCS Twitter
Bungie has plans for a new game, as they have acquired a $100 million investment from NetEase, but Activision however, might start to struggle as Blizzard is cutting costs, abandoned the Skylanders series and now losing Destiny. It remains to see what the two studios who have been working on new expansions and content for Destiny will do next. (High Moon and Vicarious Visions)
