Sony Acquires Bungie

Bungie announces it is being acquired by Sony Interactive Entertainment as the latest battle in a console war that heated up when Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard a couple of weeks ago. Sony's perspective on the sale, reportedly worth $3.6 billion, can be found on the SIE Blog. Interestingly, Bungie has been in bed with all the players in this story at one point, having signed a 10-year partnership with Activision in 2010 and previously having been owned by Microsoft from 2000 until 2007. Here's word on why Bungie feels its third marriage is true love:
In SIE, we have found a partner who unconditionally supports us in all we are and who wants to accelerate our vision to create generation-spanning entertainment, all while preserving the creative independence that beats in Bungie’s heart. Like us, SIE believes that game worlds are only the beginning of what our IPs can become. Together, we share a dream of creating and fostering iconic franchises that unite friends around the world, families across generations, and fans across multiple platforms and entertainment mediums.​
