Season 16, Episode 05

The Bungie Cinematic Universe.

I don’t really know what it means with Sony buying Bungie. As a Destiny player, I don’t think it’ll mean anything. The road map for this game seemed pretty clearly defined. They plan on wrapping it all up with an expansion next year (or maybe the year after?), and have also told us that Destiny will carry on beyond that. And beyond that is what I don’t know. I figure with the current expansions planned that Destiny 2 really won’t see much change. But everything after that and outside of that…stands to reason Sony will pull some exclusivity out of it.

But, maybe not? It’s just odd right now because Bungie is known for two things and one of them isn’t theirs anymore. And what’s left is a cross-platform, cross-save, free to play (somewhat) game. It’s something I don’t see them changing the formula of any time soon. Yes, they have other things they are working on but most of that is unknown and probably a ways off, so right now, this is all we have to speculate on.

Then there’s the media side of things. Turning the properties (well, it’s just Destiny, at the moment, really) into some sort of TV show or film. There is potential there, and maybe a lot more of it than we think. In fact, out of this purchase, I think we’re more likely to see Sony do something like that before they announce anything exclusive or otherwise with the company and property.

And speaking of Destiny, it was released a year AFTER the last Splinter Cell game from Ubisoft, and it’s been 3,091 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, or VR exclusive).
