Destiny 2 relaunches today as a partly free-to-play game and if you have been hoping for news that Bungie will work on anything besides Destiny, here it is.
Bungie revealed that plans are in place for at least one non-Destiny title being released by 2025. Last year NetEase invested over $100 million in Bungie, which was going to be used to “explore new directions”. Part of the deal was to “begin the creation of new worlds”.
Until now, there hasn’t been much news about what Bungie has planned on the non-Destiny front. In a chat with IGN, CEO Pete Parsons said the studio planned to become “one of the world’s best entertainment companies”.
“We have a pretty specific path, to make sure we transform Destiny and that we have other franchises within the marketplace.”
“I think the long-term vision of Bungie would be, we have worlds like Destiny that are great places to go and build friendships in, and we begin to introduce new worlds that people care a lot about.”
For now, the first step will be seeing what happens in Destiny 2 as it launches the free-to-play component as well as the paid expansion, Shadowkeep.
