Activision-Blizzard stocks dropped sharply right after the announcement that Bungie is splitting from them, and taking the Destiny IP with it.
That’s no surprise.
But I see folks on reddit and here celebrating this as a good thing for Blizzard and Blizzard games like Overwatch.
Sure this maybe a good thing for Bungie (time will tell), but for Blizzard and Overwatch?
Remember when Destiny 2 under-performed in the eyes of Activision and they assured shareholders that they’ll increase microtransactions as a way to boost profit? Well, they can’t do that to Destiny 2 anymore; they don’t own Destiny 2 anymore.
Who do you think Activision will try to further monetize?
