The Destiny 2 makers at Bungie have had one more reason to celebrate since July 18, 2022, because the formerly independent studio is now officially part of Sony and the Playstation family. We are curious to see if this will somehow affect the successful loot shooter.

Sony and Playstation officials had some important news to share with fans on July 18, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. ET: “The agreement to acquire Bungie has been finalized. So now we can officially say: Welcome to of the PlayStation family, Bungie!” That Sony wanted to buy into Bungie, that was announced on February 1, 2022and it has now taken almost half a year to seal the deal and obtain the necessary approvals.

Congratulations Bungie, Home of Destiny! In the studio near Seattle, however, not only the loot shooter is being worked on; the creative minds of Bungie are said to have other irons in addition to Matter have in the fire. In general, this marks the end of a turbulent and perhaps not always easy time for Bungie … again, mind you.

Microsoft, Activision Blizzard, Sony

When the folks at Bungie began working on the one absolute space saga that wipes the floor with everything else, they were instrumental in the success of Microsoft’s Xbox console. Halo brought the Bungista countless accolades and accolades, but Bungie and Microsoft parted ways in 2007. In 2010, the decision makers from Activision Blizzard came into play. Apparently, the people at Bungie pitched the idea for a new space opera to those responsible for the ABK Group, and it was well received. Destiny 1 was finally released in 2014, and Destiny 2 in 2017.
