New Destiny 2 Update Removes Credits To Activision
This past January saw Activision officially part ways with Destiny 2 developer Bungie, the two amicably ending their predetermined 10-year partnership several years early. This would pair the studio with the added title of publisher, with big plans seemingly in store for future entries in the Destiny series. Following-up their newly independent status, Destiny 2 has recently removed credits to Activision on the Battle.net store.
Introduced to Blizzard’s PC shop late last year, Destiny 2 has been listed with Activision as its touted publisher, despite the game currently lacking those particular ties to the company. However, PCGamesN recently noticed an update that sets Destiny 2 apart from the rest of the store listings: it no longer bears any publishing references to Activision. In place of the former credit now reads “published by Bungie,” the game itself also being moved to a new “Partner Games” section of the store.
As it stands, Destiny 2 appears to be the only non-owned property still on the Blizzard store, with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 now the only Activision-listed game listed in the “Partner” section. It’s unknown whether this update is a special accommodation for Bungie or suggests plans for additional third-party games to join the Battle.net family, but the situation would be pretty interesting either way. As Bungie hasn’t expressed plans to list any other PC storefronts, this is likely the arrangement they’ll have with Activision for the foreseeable future.
Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
