Still more big changes are afoot at Activision: Bungie just announced that Activision is transferring publishing rights for Destiny back to Bungie.
“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. The planned transition process is already underway in its early stages, with Bungie and Activision both committed to making sure the handoff is as seamless as possible.”
The studio promises to “continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap ” and promises “more seasonal experiences in the coming months, as well as […] some exciting announcements about what lies beyond.” The companies had worked together for the better part of a decade, and apparently Destiny 2 will continue to be available on Battle.net.
Destiny 2 will still receive full support on BattleNet and we do not anticipate any disruption to our services or your gameplay experience. https://t.co/FFOE1iae3R
