Destiny was a worthwhile attempt by Activision to build another cornerstone franchise, one that just didn't quite pan out as they had hoped (underlining once again the high difficulty of creating and managing a successful live service game business), in our view.
"When we first launched our partnership with Activision in 2010, the gaming industry was in a pretty different place". More importantly, we've also witnessed a remarkable community - tens of millions of Guardians strong - rise up and embrace Destiny, to play together, to make and share memories, and even to do truly great things that reach far beyond the game we share, to deliver a positive impact on people's everyday lives. The popular opinion is that Activision's oversight on Destiny 2 caused most of its major issues, hence its unpopularity with the community. Bungie also said they are looking forward to "surprising our community with some exciting announcements about what lies beyond", potentially referencing a sequel or expansion to Destiny 2 Forsaken.

Bungie and Activision have chose to go their separate ways, with Bungie retaining control of the crown jewel in its own empire (and the publishing rights). Chinese publisher NetEase sunk a sizeable $100 million investment into the company, paving the way for the developer's next title, Matter.
Reportedly, the relationship between Bungie and Activision has been strained for some time, and this is backed up by Kotaku's story on the situation. In a statement posted to Twitter, Activision said it "will increase its focus on owned IP and other projects" now that Destiny is off its roster. What do you think of Bungie parting ways with Activision on Destiny? Rest assured there is more of that on the way... What else is in store for Destiny 2 beyond the current roadmap is unknown, but it's possible Bungie will aim to publish a third Destiny game on its own in the future. Destiny 2 was criticized by a lot for its micro-transactions and now that Activision is out of the picture, we're really looking forward to see what Bungie will do with them. The team seems committed to continuing Destiny and making it better than ever, but there's also the $100m deal they signed with NetEase a year ago to produce an original IP - of which se still know nothing about.
