Bungie's split from Activision confirmed

It could even be that developer Bungie is gearing up to announce a Destiny 3 in the near future.

Of course, the tweets have sparked rumours of Bungie re-joining Microsoft for the first time since its 2007 split, however the likelihood of that is questionable.

On June 1, 2018, he sent a loving message that read: "You know what I want? Deep. "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again".

Despite impressive hype, Destiny did not turn into the stellar success Bungie and Activision predicted, and the company's missteps continued with its sequel. It would also like to assure players that it will deliver on the current Destiny road map, so there's no need to worry about this breaking up the flow of your game.

Fans have criticized the game's use of micro-transactions, timed exclusives for PlayStation 4 players, as well as the frequency and quality of DLC updates (a recent piece of content in the game had to be "unlocked" by Bungie after players failed to solve the puzzle meant to access it). In the official statement, Bungie says, "With Activision, we created something special". As an independent studio setting out to build a brand new experience, we wanted a partner willing to take a big leap of faith with us. After two games and multiple expansions, they've realized that is not the publisher they needed.

Officials claimed that New York's scheme would be the most comprehensive free healthcare system in America. The legislation would have to be passed by the City Council.

In an SEC report confirming the split released last night, Activision stated that although they'd be turning publishing rights for Destiny back over to Bungie, they do "not expect to recognise material revenue, operating income or operating loss from the Destiny franchise in 2019", suggesting the FPS was not proving financially beneficial. Looking ahead, we're excited to announce plans for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie.

Bungie will keep working on Destiny 2 and will continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap.

The now-former CEO of Hacienda HealthCare, Bill Timmons , has also stayed silent about exactly what he knew and when he knew it. The report says the doctor who examined her at the long-term care facility where she lives found "no change" in her health .

As Bungie takes over complete control of Destiny, Activision will increase it's focus on its other IPs. It wants to assure players there is more of that on the way, and that this transition is only part of a brighter future for Destiny. We know that new adventures await us all on new worlds filled with mystery, adventure, and hope. Going forward, Bungie will own and develop the franchise.
