Forget Jeff Bezos, Activision and Bungie have just announced a shock divorce that will see the developer publish Destiny and any future sequels itself.

Bungie and Activision are now officially going their separate ways. The original story follows below.

The surprise split comes only five years into Bungie's 10-year publishing deal with Activision, who had provided resources and support to the development and marketing of the Destiny IP since the the ambitious online shooter first launched in 2014.

Elle serait même prête, selon elle, à aider celle qui accuse Ronaldo de l'avoir violée en 2009. L'affaire de viol dans laquelle Cristiano Ronaldo est impliqué est loin d'être bouclée.

The planned transition process is apparently already underway.

With Bungie setting out to publish on their own they promised they plan to release "more seasonal experiences in the coming months, as well as surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond".

"Today, we're announcing plans for Bungie to assume full publishing rights and responsibilities for the Destiny franchise".

Of special note, Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios, both owned by Activision, previously put in work on Destiny and will now be free to work on other titles after the end of this partnership.

"We've learned, and listened, and leaned in to what we believe our players want from a great Destiny experience", Bungie wrote.

We expect you're all pretty buzzing, right now. For further news, keep an eye on Bungie's website. It makes sense for them to do it themselves for new Destiny content, but what about games outside of that universe and any new IP it tries to establish?

It will be very interesting to see how Destiny is shaped from here. The team seems committed to continuing Destiny and making it better than ever, but there's also the $100m deal they signed with NetEase previous year to produce an original IP - of which se still know nothing about. We explore four options for what Bungie "should" do in the future; some of them are personal requests, and some are business-related decisions we think are good ideas.
