bungie destiny rights

Destiny's ups and downs have been well documented, and judging from this breaking news, neither Activision nor Bungie were happy with how things were going. The publisher and developer have decided to put an end to their contract, with the rights to the Destiny property being transferred over to Bungie. Wow.

"We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision for their partnership on Destiny. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce plans for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie," the studio writes.

Meanwhile, Activision writes:

The details of this deal aren't immediately clear right now, but the bottom line is that going forward, Destiny will not be published by Activision, and the company will have nothing to do with it.

It's going to be very interesting seeing how all this pans out.
