My1sttoday Gaming – PlayStation has acquired Destiny studio Bungie and Haven studios.
Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) have completed the deal to acquire Bungie, on Friday.
“The agreement to acquire Bungie has closed,” the company said on Twitter. “So now we can officially say… welcome to the PlayStation family.”
In May, Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said the company’s planned acquisition of Halo creator Bungie was partly motivated by a desire for PlayStation to become more of a multiplatform business.
“We believe it will be a catalyst to enhance our live game services capabilities,” he said. “Our acquisition of Bungie also represents a major step forward in becoming more multiplatform.”
As the company works on Destiny 2, Bungie has announced plans to bring at least one new IP to market before 2025.
The studio is reportedly working on a new Destiny game for mobile in partnership with Chinese tech and gaming giant NetEase, which invested $100 million to become a minority shareholder in the Bellevue, Washington-based studio in 2018.
In addition, Sony also announced on Monday that it had completed its acquisition of Haven Studios, the Canadian developer co-founded by Assassin’s Creed co-creator Jade Raymond, for an undisclosed sum.
