Sony is acquiring Bungie for $3.6 billion
2022 is going to be a doozy.
Hot on the heels of Microsoft’s massive acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Sony is now joining the party with its own acquisition.
The deal is for a reported $3.6 billion, according to GamesIndustry.biz. Recently, Destiny 2 was removed from Microsoft’s Game Pass, which led some people to believe something fishy was happening behind the scenes.
“We’ve had a strong partnership with Bungie since the inception of the Destiny franchise, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to officially welcome the studio to the PlayStation family,” said SIE president and CEO Jim Ryan.
Sony has confirmed that Bungie will remain a multiplatform studio with options to “self-publish and reach players wherever they choose to play.”
