Sony to buy Bungie, Destiny 2 developer, for $3.6 billion
A few days after the gaming world got disrupted with the news of Activision Blizzard's deal with Microsoft worth $68.7 billion, another huge announcement has been made by Sony as they are buying Bungie for $3.6 billion.

The Destiny 2 developer, Bungie, will stay "an independent and multi-platform studio and publisher." It means that Bungie will be in charge of their games and will have complete creative independence.

Also, there will be no exclusive content for any particular platform, and the company will have complete independence to execute its plans from Light and Dark Saga to The Final Shape in 2024.

"We remain in charge of our destiny. We will continue to independently publish and creatively develop our games. We will continue to drive one, unified Bungie community. Our games will continue to be where our community is, wherever they choose to play." Pete Parsons said in a blog post.

 

Hermen Hulst, the Head of PlayStation Studios, stated, "Bungie makes games with outstanding technology that are enormously fun to play. They also have unmatched dedication to the communities that play their games, and everyone at PlayStation, and PlayStation Studios, will be excited about what we can share and learn from them."

 

Bungie will be hiring talent worldwide to work with them across all disciplines for Destiny 2 and other games once this deal is completed.

We are excited to see what this partnership has to offer, and it's definitely going to be an exciting year for fans all around the world.
