Bungie CEO Pete Parsons recently talked with a gaming publication talking about the challenges of being independent, and what they are planning for the future.
plans for future projects
revealed that one of their plans is to release at least one non-Destiny related
IP by the year 2025. The reason for this is that they want to make an effort to
become a multi-franchise entertainment company.
also talked about one of the biggest challenges they had to overcome after
becoming independent, which was the lack of consistent funding.
You think this is going to be a really big stressor, but it’s become a really bright shining spot on our ability to bring products to the marketplace and customers.
Our vision ultimately through 2025 is to become one of the world’s best entertainment companies.
Parsons also revealed
that one of their plans is to make major changes to their popular franchise Destiny.
Since they are now independent, Bungie has more freedom with its release
schedule and how they want to present the game to the public.
One, is 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.
Destiny and Destiny 2 are now available on PlayStation 4.
