Activision and Bungie are ending their Destiny partnership after eight years, the two companies announced.
Bungie will acquire the full rights to the massive first-person shooter franchise from Activision and plans on self-publishing all future Destiny content.
Going forward, Bungie will own and develop the franchise, and Activision will increase its focus on owned IP and other projects.
Activision and Bungie are committed to a seamless transition for the Destiny franchise and will continue to work closely together during the transition on behalf of the community of Destiny players around the world.
The deal was originally meant to run through 2020 and feature four full Destiny games and as many expansions.
The original Destiny saw its release pushed from 2013 to 2014, and rather than make a new game right away, Bungie worked on four expansions.
