In a move that is surprising and yet, somewhat expected, Bungie and Activision have announced that they have parted ways, with steps being taken to hand the publishing rights of Destiny, back to Bungie.
The two struck a deal back in 2010, with what was meant to be an 8-year deal, with requirements like releasing a game every 2 years, a host of dlc and more and while they did not deliver on the first part, the dlc was constant and mostly solid.
Thank you so much for your continued support. Our success is owed in no small part to the incredible community of players who have graced our worlds with light and life. We know self-publishing won’t be easy; there’s still much for us to learn as we grow as an independent, global studio, but we see unbounded opportunities and potential in Destiny. We know that new adventures await us all on new worlds filled with mystery, adventure, and hope. We hope you’ll join us there.
The full statement regarding the separation can be found on Bungie’s website, but the important thing to know is that the release schedule for Destiny 2 DLC is not impacted at all.
