Bungie will still publish their games and won't lock future Destiny content or other unannounced titles to PlayStation platform.

Sony have today announced the acquisition of Destiny developer Bungie for $3.6 billion. The legendary developers will join the (Sony Interactive Entertainment) SIE family but will remain independent inside SIE.

As for their beloved titles, Destiny games will remain multiplatform as will other future titles, which is quite surprising to be fair. 

"We want the worlds we are creating to extend to anywhere people play games. We will continue to be self-published, creatively independent and we will continue to drive one, unified Bungie community," Bungie said in a blog post.

Head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst said everyone at PlayStation is excited to welcome Bungie to the family and what they can share and learn together.

So basically, this acquisition does seem to be very similar to Microsoft's acquisition of Activision, who could be launching their future games on multiple platforms. 

It's still early days so it remains to be seen how both of these acquisitions pan out in the next couple of years. 

One thing is for certain though, this gen is turning into something quite special and it's an exciting time to be a gamer. 

It is important to note again that things within the industry are changing and seeing Sony allowing Bungie to stay independent and publish their games on other platforms is indeed telling.
