Bungie have been going from strength to strength for a while now, and the studio now announced they're planning major growth in 2021, with a new studio, more devs and additional board members.

For all of Bungie's insistence that Activision have never meddled with Destiny 2 or their business, the studio's trajectory since their split has been on such an upward trend that we can now safely chalk those off to professional courtesy.

According to Bungie's latest blog post, the studio will be expanding their Bellevue headquarters to 208,000 square feet, which is just the beginning of course. They're also planning for complete technical modernisation, as well as the opening of the first international office in 2022.

Alongside the technical modernisation comes the human resources element, where Bungie are planning for reinforcements in the development department as well as in the executive suite. 

Bungie have already appointed new members of the Board and Directors, Trace Harris and Viacom CBS' Pamela Kaufman. 

They've also made a number of changes in the proverbial trenches, although the most notable appointment for Destiny 2 fans will be Mark Noseworthy and Luke Smith's, who will oversee and prepare for the expansion of the Destiny Universe into additional media. 

Meanwhile, Destiny 2 general manager Justin Truman will be taking over the development leadership of the game.

Bungie's CEO Pete Parsons said, “The past several years have been a time of tremendous growth and opportunity for Bungie.  We are home to some of the brightest and best talent in the industry, and we look forward to expanding upon both our talent pool this year and increasing the resources to support them."
