Destiny 3 release date SHOCK news after Bungie/Activision part ways

The other major disagreement between Activision and Bungie was over Destiny 2's failure to attract a larger casual audience, despite initial attempts to make the game more accessible.

In a note to investors, analysts from Cowen & Company predicted that Bungie would release Destiny 3 next year, despite the sequel never having been announced and no prior reports that it was in development.

"Going forward, Bungie will own and develop the [Destiny] franchise, and Activision will increase its focus on owned IP and other projects".

'We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision for their partnership on Destiny. We had a vision for Destiny that we believed in, but to launch a game of that magnitude, we needed the support of an established publishing partner.

Yesterday Bungie surprised the world by announcing the intention to drop Activision as a publishing partner for the Destiny franchise and a reaction from the market was to be expected.

While officially the split remains amicable, players and onlookers alike are wondering what it means for the future of Destiny. It wants to assure players there is more of that on the way, and that this transition is only part of a brighter future for Destiny.

Of course, the tweets have sparked rumours of Bungie re-joining Microsoft for the first time since its 2007 split, however the likelihood of that is questionable. The team seems committed to continuing Destiny and making it better than ever, but there's also the $100m deal they signed with NetEase a year ago to produce an original IP - of which se still know nothing about. However, publisher and developer are now parting ways. Head down to the comments section and let us know! It's hard to know exactly how much influence Activision had over the Destiny franchise, but if it was a significant amount, we might see Destiny change dramatically as a result of Bungie taking over publishing duties.
