    It’s just destiny right? I mean Halo was originally developed by them but Microsoft owns all the IP and took it on themselves?

    edit - yup, only Destiny. What a weird history for Bungie. From wiki:

    Microsoft acquired Bungie in 2000, and its project Halo: Combat Evolved was repurposed as a launch title for Microsoft's Xbox console. Halo became the Xbox's "killer app", selling millions of copies and spawning the Halo franchise. On October 5, 2007, Bungie announced that it had split from Microsoft and become a privately held independent company, Bungie LLC, while Microsoft retained ownership of the Halo franchise intellectual property. It signed a ten-year publishing deal with Activision in April 2010. Their first project was the 2014 first-person shooter, Destiny, which was followed by Destiny 2 in 2017. In January 2019, Bungie announced it was ending this partnership, and would take over publishing for Destiny. In January 2022, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced their intent to acquire Bungie as part of their family of studios, though Bungie would remain an independent and multi-platform studio and publisher.
    Worked so hard to stay independent. Then just gets bought out for 1 game. Wonder if Sony just threw money in their face cuz they needed to do something.

    $3.6B for 1 game, 38M subs, and $60M revenue. 313 employees say average of $150K a pop, that's $50M in wages alone.

    Desperate move on Sony's part. But stock up 5% on the news, so they at least recover a bit.

    Sounds like they are working on an additional game as well in a new universe. Seems like kind of a strange purchase but sony obviously knows more than me.

    The Show 22 also coming Day one to gamepass which is developed by sony santa monica.

    Seems like they overpaid for Bungie. Looks like it was in the works for a few months and not a reaction to last week.

    It would be hard for me to try another Bungie game though after playing Destiny 1.

    I mean, they are pretty expensive with the buyer's premiums, so... This adds up.

    Destiny was the first game I played that had true cross-platform. As a PC player, I could party with, and voice chat with, friends from both Xbox and PS at the same time.

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.
