Sony Acquires Bungie for $3.6 Billion
Acquisitions are Al the rage these days as Microsoft and Sony have both said they aren’t done buying studios. This past week Sony struck back as they purchased the studio that created Halo and literally built the Xbox, Bungie. Good news for those who are a fan of their games however, as the Destiny studio will operate as a separate entity and all of their current and future projects will remain multiplatform. The deal seems to be more than just a simple acquisition, as Sony has the resources to allow Bungie to become a multimedia entertainment company while Bungie has a massive skill set for Sony to utilize as they expand into live service and multiplayer offerings.
