A Battle.net Patch Has Removed Credits to Activision in Destiny 2
A recent update on Battle.net for Destiny 2 has finally removed Activision's credits since Bungie is now self-publishing the game.
Bungie decided to part ways with Activision back in January and despite the breakup, Activision was still included inside the game’s credits. Well, until now on PC. A recent Battle.net update displays big and proudly that the game is developed and published by Bungie and it has moved the Activision section to “Partner Games.”
It is still uncertain if non-Activision titles will come to Battle.net in the future. Back when the split between the mega-publisher and Bungie first was announced, the plan was and still remains to maintain support of the game on Battle.net. However, it is unclear if Destiny 2 will end up on some other storefronts on PC now that it is solely self-published by the developers. But, it is probably safe to say that Destiny 3 will be coming to many other PC stores.
Now that the developer has broken free from the Activision chains, I am actually quite intrigued by how they will handle the next adaptation of the game in the inevitable Destiny 3. Now, that Bungie has full control, they can build the game specifically geared toward their vision and their audience, which might actually come with some big overhauls. The original was released way back in September of 2014 and the sequel was released almost exactly 3 years later in September of 2017. So, judging by the track record of the releases of the previous titles, I would have to guess we would hear something about another title in the next couple years.
Destiny 2 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
