Destiny 2 Season 2 Gets Official Name, Teaser Ahead of Reveal

Bungie Wants to Self Publish New Games

During a livestream, Bungie said its goal was to offer a "new experience" with Gambit.

Just two months after Tencent bought a 5% stake in Assassin's Creed developer Ubisoft to save it from a hostile takeover, NetEase is now pumping US$100 million into Halo's creator Bungie.

The famed studio has been working on Destiny since at least 2010, releasing the first game in 2014 and the second past year.

The latest title in the Destiny series is Destiny 2, which is the first version of the game available on PC. In fact, some fans and critics have questioned whether the franchise is dying out, as player numbers shrink.

Although Activision publishes Destiny, Bungie are an independent developer and can do whatever else they like as well. While some welcomed it as an indication that Bungie might break loose from Activision's grip and shift its focus away from Destiny, others are anxious that NetEase will further push Bungie into making games that will involve a lot of in-game purchases - a common feature in Asian games.

"If you're a player of Destiny, this news won't impact the hobby you've come to know".

"'Destiny' is an experience that will grow for many years to come", the statement reads. Our commitment to that world is not diminished by this announcement.

The statement further revealed that under the supervision of Jason Jones, chief creative officer and founder, Bungie "will begin the creation of new worlds", which should reassure the fanbase that its current focus is on the "Destiny" franchise alone - and any new franchise development is set for the future. That said, this deal brings a new Bungie IP closer than ever.
