Bungie part ways with Activision and retain the rights to the Destiny franchise

by on January 11, 2019

Destiny developer Bungie and Activision have called it quits on the relationship that brought us Destiny and Destiny 2, with the developer set to self publish future Destiny games.

As Activision look to concentrate on their own IP projects Bungie (in a post over on Bungie.net) state that thanks to the strength of the Destiny community that they will retain the publishing rights to Destiny and “continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap”. As the two companies arrange the handoff to ensure that it’s completed as smoothly as possible, Bungie state that they’re “releasing more seasonal experiences in the coming months” and “surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond.”

Bungie are obviously confident that they will be able to continue to deliver good experiences in Destiny going forward. Mick reviewed the Forsaken expansion back in September 2018 giving it 8.5/10, but believes that the latest part of the roadmap – Niobe Labs – is just a bit too much.
