Bungie Receives $100m Investment from NetEase

Melba Vasquez | 05 June, 2018, 16:24

But Destiny will not be affected.

The minority stake in the Destiny developer is meant to help the studio work across multiple projects and self-publish games, although that move won't affect the relationship that Bungie has with Activision.

"With NetEase's industry expertise and global reach, our partnership will help us realize our shared goal of reaching players around the globe", said Bungie CEO Pete Parsons.

"Today, we're excited to announce that we've entered into a new partnership with NetEase to help us explore new directions", Bungie's statement reads.

Despite the deal Bungie will maintain its existing long-term partnership with Activision on the Destiny franchise. Mathematically gifted readers will already have worked out that this decade-long deal comes to an end soon.

The announcement that Bungie is working on a new game as part of the NetEase partnership might have caught the attention of some Destiny 2 players. As many sources pointed out, Destiny 2 Forsaken must be focusing on Caydee, as Curse of Osiris centered on Ikora and Warmind on Zavala. We'll continue to work with our partners at Activision to foster this global community and turn new players from all over the world into Guardians. NetEase has handled World of Warcraft's Chinese operation since 2009, and also released StarCraft 2, Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Diablo 3 in the country. It couldn't be, given the fact that the original Destiny game had a $500 million budget.
