Bungie splits with Activision, will publish Destiny themselves

Destiny 2 – Bungie take control
Destiny 2 will no longer have anything to do with Activision, as Bungie announce plans to take full control of the game themselves.

Forget Jeff Bezos, Activision and Bungie have just announced a shock divorce that will see the developer publish Destiny and any future sequels itself.
Despite the huge success of Destiny the games, and their updates, have always suffered from development problems, with publisher Activision imposing demands that have ensured a consistently strained relationship between the two.
The main point of contention has been the yearly schedules that Activision has forced on Bungie, with the publisher mandating a certain number of releases per year no matter what.
The final straw is believed to be last year’s expansion Forsaken , which was praised by fans and critics but failed to meet Activision’s sales targets.

‘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’, said Bungie in a statement on their website .
Unofficially, Bungie employees were apparently elated at the news, with Kotaku reporting that developers were cheering and popping champagne when the annoucement was made at their offices.
The transition is already underway, but since Destiny 2 is planning to remain on Blizzard’s Battle.net the difference it makes may not be immediately obvious to fans.
But moving forward Bungie are promising that, ‘We’ll continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap, and we’re looking forward to releasing more seasonal experiences in the coming months, as well as surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond.’

This is the second time Bungie has been involved in a major break-up, after they split from previous owners Microsoft in order to become an independent developer again.
After leaving the Halo franchise they courted various publishers as partners for Destiny, before finally deciding on Activision.
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 the split does put Activision in a difficult position as the company has always relied on a very small number of big-name games, rather than the more varied portfolios of other publishers.
Although they have had recent success with the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro The Dragon remakes and are set to publish FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice later this year.


Thank you Guardians. It’s been an honor and a privilege to help bring the world of Destiny to life for you. pic.twitter.com/EB1y19OTD8
