Author Topic: Activision gets forgeted, Bungie leaves and Phil Spencer hints at a future with them  (Read 598 times)


how did activision get forgeted lol. everyone knew this was going to happen, the ten year publishing rights were due to end in 2021. you're acting like this was some sneak attack or something. right now bungie has no publisher which means they wont be able to make anything worthwhile until they sign a new deal with some other company. im betting its gonna be ubisoft or blizzard

okay? and what could bungie have made in those two years? a best-selling mobile game? the contract was basically over, there's nothing they could have done with those two years

maybe a mobile game or two who knows

they seemed pretty preoccupied with destiny 2 dlc. they only recently finished all destiny 2 development like 3 months ago. if they had some super secret major project that would've won the publisher big money, it'd basically have to have been started september 2018 and finished april 2020, which is pretty unreasonable. they could've squeezed a short project like another destiny DLC into that space but they probably realized that it wouldn't be much of a profit for themselves or activision anyways.

i dont think this is some sort of bad omen, it's just the natural end of the publishing lifetime. not enough time to make a best selling project. activision and bungie both realized this fact and decided to stop wasting each other's time and money, they already reaped every cent they could out of this lucrative contract. maybe even bungie got more out of it in the end because they got paid for 10 years worth of publishing rights but only gave out 8 years of it

You know you can self publish?

Also Destiny content is still going strong and not stopping. Destiny 2 development is still ongoing.

To add on to that. You don't necessarily have to get a long term or exclusive contract to work with another publisher.

Also if the only good games to you are "Triple A" published under well known asshole titans, enjoy being an NPC.

literally no one said this

Playing games doesn't make you a games industry expert, OP

Awesome now all the problems in Destiny will go away right? right?


But seriously cool I guess

What I like is that now, moving forward, Bungie is solely responsible for their actions. Even if you didn’t believe that Activision had any of their many fingers inside of Bungie’s pies, the mindset is now totally changed. It’ll be interesting to see how Bungie fares being independent for the first time since, like, Marathon or some stuff.
