Depending upon how you look at it, there’s been good news and bad for Activision, starting with a split from Destiny developers Bungie.
The pair first hooked up in 2010, with plans for four Destiny games and a bunch of expansions. Delays led to just two main experiences releasing during their eight years together.
All rights to the Destiny series will be retained by Bungie, and they promise to continue with new developments in the game’s universe.
A statement on Bungie’s website says, “We’ll continue to deliver on the existing Destiny roadmap, and we’re looking forward to releasing more seasonal experiences in the coming months, as well as surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond.”
In other Activision announcements, a news release about management appointments has seen them drop an interesting claim regarding Call of Duty. The top-selling console game franchise in the US for the past decade, Activision are boasting that, “As a franchise, Call of Duty has now generated more revenue than the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the box office, and double that of the cumulative box office of Star Wars“.
