It looks like Bungie is going at it alone as they will assume full publishing rights to the Destiny franchise from Activision.
Here’s the joint statement from Bungie and Activision:
Thank you Guardians. It’s been an honor and a privilege to help bring the world of Destiny to life for you. pic.twitter.com/EB1y19OTD8

Bungie signed a 10-year exclusive publishing deal with Activision in 2010 so the deal didn’t end much earlier than expected. I imagine that Destiny 2 may not have performed as well as Activision expected and Bungie took the opportunity to take control of their own franchise ahead of a possible third entry in the series. Still, it’s nice to see the companies working amicably for the players to make sure the gaming experience doesn’t change.
