The latest patch for Battle.net launcher has removed all credits to Activision from Destiny 2. Now, Destiny 2 page on Battle.net only displays that the game is developed by Bungie and published by Bungie. No trace of Activision whatsoever.

Earlier this year, Bungie and Activision split ways after a long and not so successful eight-year partnership. Bungie have taken Destiny 2 independent and are now the official developer and publisher of the game. 

As you may know, Destiny 2 is available on Battle.net, and if you play the game, or start the launcher from time to time to play WoW, Call of Duty or other avaliable games, you'll know that Activision's logo was still present in the credits, despite the split up.

Well, in the latest patch for the launcher, the logo has finally been removed and Destiny 2's page on Battle.net now proudly displays that the game is developed by Bungie and published by Bungie, without a single trace of Activision.

The Activision category, under which Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Destiny 2 were listed along with other games from the publisher, has been renamed and now simply states "Partner Games".

Back when Bungie and Activision announced the breakup, they had an agreement that Destiny 2 stays on Battle.net but now it's possible that the game arrives to other stores on PC. Of course, this is not confirmed and it's just a guess. However, you can bet that the next Destiny game will indeed launch on other platforms.

We also don't know Activision's plans regarding Battle.net. It's possible that the company leaves the platform for good and starts releasing their games on Steam and/or Epic Games Store.

The next Call of Duty game reveal is just around the corner so we should get some information on the PC release and where exactly Activision plan to launch the title.
