With the release of Destiny 2's biggest expansion just a little over three weeks away, players all over the world got some exciting news ahead of tomorrow's reset. Sony has officially bought Bungie for $3.6 Billion. However, the latter company will run as an independent SIE subsidiary.

Bungie is best known for their work on notable titles such as Halo. However, the name Destiny became known to the gaming community in 2014 as one of the most renowned and addicting looter-shooters in the market.

With Destiny 2 being on the platform for almost four years now, Bungie has created a separate storyline for fans and veteran players. With Sony buying the company, Bungie cleared out a lot of air immediately after, by uploading a blog post on their official website.

As things stand right now, nothing is scheduled to change with this. Bungie has announced that they will keep the same content for the Light vs Dark saga until 2024.

In addition, anything related to crossplay will remain unchanged, where players can launch The Witch Queen expansion on a platform of their choice. The Year 5 expansion won't have any platform exclusives throughout its planned runtime of one year.

Bungie will remain an independant subsidiary of SIEBungie will remain a multiplatform studio with the option to self-publishBungie is still maintaining D2, working on Destiny franchise expansion and a new IP

However, one of the main queries for players is regarding third-party applications such as the Companion app, Destiny Item Manager, and their accessibility. Thankfully, Bungie has responded to this, saying everything will stay the same as before.

While there aren't any planned exclusives for the looter-shooter title, the Destiny franchise sure does have its fair share of history being exclusive for consoles. However, with the recent deal, Destiny 2 has shown no sign of changing its multi-platform service.
