It was announce few minutes ago.

Destiny is Bungie's IP and their will self publish now.

Seems good news for Destiny because even before the first game Activision and Bungie were fighting because Bungie wanted to focus on hardcore while Activision wanted that casuals.

Destiny should be hardcore.

Wut!? That seems out of the blue and is pretty big news.

Will surely make fans happy but hopefully they don't have any issues keeping the studio funded.

I won't out of blue because there are rumors since November.

Some even though Bungie was being brought by MS.

dang, that's crazy. I always thought that bungie was gonna self publish and that that was their goal, but after destiny. I always thought that destiny was their way of making enough money to be able to do that. It seems Activision's wasn't pleased with destiny 2 sales.

Now wouldn't that be quite the plot twist.
A plot twist would be bungie signing up with EA and releasing Destiny

Seems like Activision is being investigated.
