Bungie And Activision Part Ways, Bungie Takes Full Ownership Of Destiny IP

Throughout a flurry of underwhelming sales figures for the multiplayer first-person shooter, Destiny 2, publisher Activision has decided to suddenly cut ties with developers Bungie.

The announcement comes after a collaborated message from both companies sent out via Twitter on January 10,2019:

“Today, we’re announcing plans for Bungie to assume full publishing rights and responsibilities for the Destiny franchise. Going forward, Bungie will own and develop the franchise, and Activision will increase its focus on owned IP and other projects.” — Activision, Bungie

The dissolution between the two companies will allow Bungie to take full control over both development and publishing for the Destiny franchise. Activision expressed that they will continue working on owned IPs, but still work with Bungie during the transition for a fluid move.

Even though Activision — and its subsidiary, Blizzard Entertainment — are no longer tied with Bungie and the Destiny name, Destiny 2 will still be available at the company’s marketplace, BattleNet.

Could this be an unwelcoming sign for the future of the Destiny series, perhaps an unwelcome, ahem, destiny? Or, will the move allow Bungie to revive the Destiny series that’s seemingly been under the tight grasps of the big corporate publisher only looking after its own pockets, rather than listen to the dedicated fan base?

Time will tell, but with Bungie’s now second dissolution from a big named publisher (the first being Microsoft who claimed the rights to the Halo franchise back in 2007), the company’s future sure seems a bit fuzzy. Here’s to hoping Bungie returns Destiny to its former glory with the next installment in the series later down the line.

Dead Cells’ Return to Castlevania expansion, which came out a few weeks ago and is really good, is a great way to relive your childhood and enjoy a nostalgic distraction. A native PS5 physical release of the game is in the works, and it looks like we’ll be getting a bundle with both versions of the game.

Gematsu found a listing for “Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania Edition” on the ESRB website. It was rated T for Teen, which suggests that an announcement is coming soon.

After its initial 2018 release on PS4 to widespread acclaim, Dead Cells has received a steady stream of updates, and we think a bundled SKU including DualSense support and all the other PS5 bells and whistles would be awesome. What do you think of Return to Castlevania if you’ve been playing it?

Is Marvel’s Midnight Suns on the PlayStation 5 your curios? Over the weekend, anyone who wanted to could try out the tactical superhero game for free. Unfortunately, due to a few mistakes, it hasn’t been helping everyone. The good news is that this hiccup has been fixed, and the trial has been extended to make up for lost time:

As a result, until Thursday, March 30th, all PS5 owners can enjoy the game at no cost. You’ll have plenty of time to check it out after that.

Firaxis’ Marvel’s Midnight Suns gives familiar heroes and villains a fresh spin through the use of turn-based strategy and role-playing game elements. You’ll be able to hang out with Marvel’s Blade, Captain Marvel, and Wolverine when you’re not engaged in tactical battles. The game has its own style and is fun to play.

It’s also important to note that PS Plus Premium members can play the game for two hours for free. That’s why it’s not the end of the world if you can’t take advantage of this protracted trial period.

Will you be using this demo to check out Marvel’s Midnight Suns on the PS5?
