Activison Bungie Partnership Comes To An End

Just two months after Activision’s bad news earnings call, (which highlighted many problems) Activision is pulling out of its partnership with Bungie.

“Some of our other franchises like Destiny are not performing as well as we’d like,” said COO Coddy Johnson during the aforementioned call, which took place in November. He went on to say that some players were in ‘wait and see’ mode, and that was ‘time to bring players back.’

That optimistic plan clearly never materialized, and now never will. The split is not surprising considering the core problems with D2 from day 1. By the time real improvements came from the Warmind DLC in the spring, many players had already jumped ship.

Current fans will have to wait and see how the transition plays out, though both Activision and Bungie claim to be ‘committed to a seamless transition.’
