Out of all the developers out there, Bungie is the one you can call ‘consistent’. For years, their business was based on developing a huge game franchise that drives in tons of revenue for the company. First, there was Halo and later, Destiny. However, it seems that the company is gearing up for a new chapter as the Bungie CEO Pete Parsons told that the company hopes to release a new game by 2025.
In an interview with IGN, Pete Parsons talked about the future of Bungie mentioning that the studio has their own plan for the future:
“Our vision, ultimately, through 2025 is to become one of the world’s best entertainment companies. <…> we need to begin transforming Destiny. The Destiny that we really believe in, like, the thing we think Destiny needs to become. I think you’ve seen it in the vid doc, like, the single evolving world, we needed to focus on that. So, by 2025 we have a pretty specific path to make sure we transform Destiny and that we have other franchises within the marketplace. I think the long-term vision of Bungie would be, we have worlds like Destiny that are great places to go and build friendships in. And we begin to introduce new worlds that people care a lot about.”
To be fair, this isn’t the first time Bungie has talked about their plans to make a new game. The studio recently regained independence after its split with Activision. At the same time the Chinese publisher NetEase invested 100 million dollars into the future of Bungie. Additionally, about a year ago Bungie filed a trademark in the EU for some yet unannounced project called Matter.
With all of that in mind, we’re pretty confident about the future of Bungie. Today marks the release of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and free-to-play version of their MMO shooter, which should definitely drive in some additional revenue for future projects.
