Bungie splits with Activision, keeps Destiny IP

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bungie splits with Activision, keeps Destiny IP

Not sure if Activision Blizzard is restructuring or simply falling apart xD

Generally speaking, I see the devs having more freedom as a good thing. But, I don't think this necessarily means they have more freedom. They've now lost their deep pocketed sugar daddy, and gotta make a go of it on their own (or find a new sugar daddy). They're a for-profit enterprise, not an artists' collective. So, they don't just get to do whatever they want. Every dollar is now more important than ever. They gotta get 'em somewhere.

Well hopefully we get Destiny 3 that's not full of greedy corporate crap that gets supported for 6 or 7 years. While that's maturing they work on a new IP again free from corporate crap.

You forgetting they left MS first? Never wondered why?



This has pros and cons

Pros: More freedom
Cons: Less exposure and marketing

I'm still disappointed with D2 so if they want Destiny 3 to be influential as Halo without Activision's marketing behind, they better make the best FPS ever.

Not a chance of that ever happening.

They abandoned the Halo IP in order to get away from MS, they certainly ain't gonna go back!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Distancing oneself from Activision is a good idea in general—the publisher seems to embrace the worst, most cynical instincts—but I feel like this divorce won’t help Bungie or Destiny. The studio just isn’t the same one that ruled the roost from 2001-2010. The personnel are different, the design philosophy is different.

I have a hard time believing all of Destiny’s sins are due to Activision.

I agree with this post wholeheartedly

But Microsoft changed? back then they only wanted bungie for halo only I think? to make new IP's and old Microsoft didn't give freedom me thinks?
