5 monthes ago   |   By GameSpot

Bungie will assume publishing rights of the Destiny series from Activision, the developer announced today.

Investors were seemingly spooked at the idea of Activision Blizzard losing a revenue-contributor. The company's share price fell by almost 7 percent in...

5 monthes ago   |   By N4G

When we first launched our partnership with Activision in 2010, the gaming industry was in a pretty different place. As an independent studio setting out to build a brand new experience, we wanted a partner willing to take a big leap of faith with us.
