Bungie Part Of Sony's Plan To Produce 10 Live-service Games By 2026
Bungie's new IP likely among those in the works.
Sony's had a busy week, what with its announced purchase of Bungie and all, and the next four years are looking to be even busier. In a call with investors this week, CFO Hiroki Totoki said that his company plans to work closely with its new acquisition to produce 10 live-service games that will be released by the year 2026, NME.com spotted.
One of those games is undoubtedly the new IP that Bungie has already announced that it's working on, with plans to launch by 2025. Apart from that, try not to get too excited by the announcement -- any company that says it's working on 10 games to be released over the next four years can easily shift either of those two numbers as it suits them. Keep in mind that Destiny was originally supposed to have sequels every two years, with Destiny 3 and Destiny 4 coming out in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
Sony CEO Jim Ryan went on to say that we "should absolutely expect more" acquisitions in the future, as Sony attempts to keep pace with Microsoft and its recent mega-acquisition. That deal is being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission, but even with that body's stricter review process, there's little reason to think it won't go through, though it might take a little longer than expected.
