As officially confirmed by Sony, Bungie was officially acquired, and is now part of the PlayStation Studios, where it will lead the world of Destiny and certainly many other contents.
All this comes almost as a response to Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, although here we are talking about a much lower figure, 3,8 billion dollars.
As officially clarified by the company, still burned by the experience of Activision, Sony will only provide support to the developer, who will continue to independently publish and develop their games, continuing the path it has taken with the community. As pointed out, the titles will continue to arrive on all other non-Sony platforms as well, although it is possible that in the future exclusive content will arrive for PlayStation users.

Like a bolt from the blue, Sony then responded to the Redmond giant, although it must be said, as mentioned, that in this case the focus is definitely less, but in any case the support of the Japanese company will be able to help the world of Destiny and the new Bungie projects to grow.
It remains to be seen how Bungie's journey will continue in any case now that this is part of the PlayStation Studios and will collaborate with Sony, with the potential development of Destiny 3 still completely uncertain, and with support for the second chapter that certainly not. tends to stop, while it cannot be excluded that new IPs will be able to be seen in the space of some time thanks to the arrival of new talents.
