Bungie said Destiny 2 and their future games will continue being multiplatform. Jim Ryan said Destiny 2 and future Bungie games will continue being multiplatform including rival consoles. This includes Xbox.

SIE now owns two publishers: PS Studios and Bungie. Their plan for Bungie is muliplatform including Xbox. Their plan for PS Studios is PS exclusive with some of their games being ported to PC years later of their original release on PS.

This is 100% correct. But nothing stops Sony from expanding Bungie's studio in the near future, with the intent to make a PS exclusive. For example, what if Bungie wanted to create a VR Warplane Dog shooter? By default that'll be exclusive to Playstation, unless they create it for Vive and Oculus too. But that wouldn't come to Xbox for obvious reasons.

There's no reason to believe Bungie within the next 3-5 years wouldn't be creating a non-Xbox game to be honest.

And Bungie are already carrying out significant recruitment.

Basically nothing that has come out is legally binding. Same as all the talk regarding CoD and other Activision games.

Just wanted to give props to those who mentioned Marathon. Not that I think it'd be good now, but it's a game that gets forgotten from the 90s. It was really ahead of its time in many areas.

As happens with all their other internal studios, they are also highly growing Bungie or at least announced plans to do it in the following years.

Bungie games will be on rival consoles like Xbox. But these multiplatform games could get exclusive betas or demos on PS, console bundles, short timed exclusivities of some DLC (like 1 month) as we saw in places like CoD, could be exclusive regarding game subscriptions. Or maybe even the games themselves could have a very small timed exclusivity but as of now they seem to be planned as full multiplatform.

Seems Sony is doing the same MS did for Minecraft or announced for big Bethesda or Activision IPs. There may be some console exclusive but I think most of these exceptions are going to be timed console exclusives and that will focus on multiplatform instead.

But yes, if Bungie makes some VR stuff obviously is going to be console exclusive (I don't think they would be capable of including it into Nintendo's cardboard VR).

Obviously plans can change, and over time Bungie (or Sony) may decide to keep Bungie exclusive. But as of now their plan is to release their Bungie stuff everywhere. Sony and MS want to grow by releasing on more platforms including rival consoles.

I think Sony will buy another -pretty likely Japanese- multiplatform publisher and to keep it multiplatform. But to keep them exclusive for betas or demos, game subs services, VR stuff, console bundles and maybe to get 1 month timed exclusivity or something like that for some DLCs.

I think MS will do the same on their side with Zenimax and Activision Blizzard. They get exclusive betas/demos/bundles/game subs/timed exclusivity for some DLCs but the games get multiplatform with maybe some exception from time to time (like a new IP, some niche game or a game from a small team).

They bought these companies because they make a lot of money and have been very expensive, it would be dumb to turn them into full exclusive specially now with the chips shortage. They make more money by keeping them multi.

Again, where does multiplatform = Xbox? I have not heard them use the word xbox

Destiny 2 will the Minecraft treatmeant but expecting all Bungie games from this point on to be a multi-console release is naive. Sony already bought exclusive Destiny content before they were even owned by them lol

I bet that when Jimbo said future Bungie games will be multiplatform "INCLUDING RIVAL CONSOLES" he didn't mean the SouljaBoy.

A rival console is any other console that exists 😁

As stated before that statement can mean whatever Jim Ryan wants it to mean. Same as when Spencer was going on about CoD. This is proof of nothing. The industry is full of corporate double-speak.


Right, for all we know they could be talking about nintendo port of destiny
