Well it sounds like they're going to continue making games for Playstation, Xbox, and PC so I'm not sure how that's different from Destiny and Destiny 2.

Microsoft buys Activision who will continue making games for Playstation, Sony buys Bungie who will continue making games for Xbox and Windows. So who really cares?

Had lol. Destiny is meh after about an hour for me. I still like OG Halo tho.
too bad bungie can't touch Halo....

Bungie has 1 game with a shrinking playerbase. Sony is paying Minecraft money for a game with no mobile presence.

I think it's a wise purchase and money well spent in the long run. The end game is where it's at. Sony has to bring in some more studios.for when videogame armageddon takes place

My guess is they have a new IP in development and close to release.

Thats exactly what they need to do for their D2 playerbase - delay their minor, empty DLC's even more so by splitting their workforce to other flights of fancy.

I truly loved Destiny 1 but I jumped ship on Destiny 2 even before the first DLC came out. It just did nothing for me.

…nothing, I’m pretty sure. It doesn’t pay dividends anyway. Besides, Nintendo seems to be doing just fine without them.

I suspect we'll see some Blizzard IPs become Xbox/PC Exclusives.

New York Times still made the biggest scoop purchase of the last month.
