Sony has “many more moves to make” after buying Bungie

Including an extended push to PC.

Sony has “many more moves to make” after announcing its intent to acquire Destiny developer Bungie, according to PlayStation head Jim Ryan.

“We should absolutely expect more,” Ryan said to Games Industry, speaking of Sony and plans to acquire more studios.

“We are by no means done,” he continued. “With PlayStation, we have a long way to go. I will personally be spending a lot of my time with Pete and the team at Bungie, helping make sure that everything beds down right and that autonomy means autonomy. But elsewhere in the organisation, we have many more moves to make.”

Ryan also said PlayStation plans to continue its push to PC.

“I’ve been on record talking about increasing the size of the PlayStation community, and expanding beyond our historic console heartland,” he said.

“We are starting to go multiplatform, you’ve seen that. We have an aggressive roadmap with live services. And the opportunity to work with, and particularly learn from, the brilliant and talented people from Bungie… that is going to considerably accelerate the journey we find ourselves on.”

Sony today announced plans to acquire Bungie for $3.6 billion USD. Bungie will remain independent and produce multi-platform games, according to the pair’s announcement.
