Bungie is now officially part of Sony

The acquisition has closed.

Destiny 2 developer Bungie is now officially part of Sony, as the acquisition of the studio has officially closed.

Sony PlayStation made the announcement over the weekend.

The agreement to acquire Bungie has closed,” Sony wrote. “So now we can officially say… welcome to the PlayStation family, Bungie!”

Sony announced its intention to acquire Bungie for $3.6 million USD back in February of this year.

At the time, Sony’s Jim Ryan asserted that the studio would remain independent, despite the acquisition.

“I want to be very clear to the community that Bungie will remain an independent and multi-platform studio and publisher,” Ryan said.

“As such, we believe it makes sense for it to sit alongside the PlayStation Studios organization, and we are incredibly excited about the opportunities for synergies and collaboration between these two world-class groups. I have spent a lot of time with Pete Parsons, Jason Jones, and the Bungie management team to develop the right relationships where they will be fully backed and supported by Sony Interactive Entertainment and enabled to do what they do best — build incredible worlds that captivate millions of people.”

Destiny 2 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia. Its Solstice of Heroes 2022 event kicks off later this week.
