What a waste of $3.6 billion
for real, a studio with a history of ingration and rebellion, most recently having gone so far as to have become a completely self published enterprise, and sony thinks this will be a profitable endeavor?

perhaps, if Bungie's upcoming IP in development is a PS5 exclusive there will be significant payoff, and I will almost certainly be playing it on my ps5 since there have been no titles I've been interested in since Demon's Souls, but an IP worth 3.6 billion?

and given Bungie's track record of not buying themselves out but making deals for their freedom?

for some reason I doubt they will be able to emulate Halo's success for Sony, in spite of how natural the partnership seems given the Destiny exclusives they've offered playstation

I can only imagine Sony has determined that the best course of action is to acquire as much independent talent as possible, starting with bungie as they are the largest independent studio today

if they attempt to acquire CDPR next, or soon, my theory will be confirmed, and it will become clear that the 9th gen console war will be determined by ownership, and Sony will be hedging its bets with studios that desire creative freedom for exclusives, while microsoft will deign acquiring publishers such as bethesda and activision-blizzard most profitable

What do either gain from the partnership? Sony possibly gets more exclusives I suppose but I don’t understand how Bungie is going to benefit. Gotta be a good deal or maybe Bungie is being dumb. Someone is desperate in some way.

Imagine buying a studio whose only good games came out a decade ago and you don't even get the rights to reboot them because the studio doesn't own them anymore.

I wasn't disappointed after reading the comments on the announcement video:

"PlayStation fans think they're getting Halo but BUNGiE hasn't owned the franchise in over a decade" etc.

They own the name of the company that did, but I doubt hardly anyone who actually made anything as far back as reach is in huge presence over there.
If it were the same people Destiny 2 would not be handled the way it is.

Bungie gets resources and manpower, Sony gets a cut of the profits of one of the biggest live service games in addition to establishing a presence in that part of the industry after relying purely on single player experiences for so many years.

Your childhood studio never existed in the first place.
