The PlayStation producer had reported its aim to obtain the gaming studio in January, and presently, that procurement is finished. At the underlying declaration, Sony said (pdf) the arrangement was valued at $3.6 billion, yet in a SEC documenting on Friday, it said the arrangement was deal “approximately” $3.7 billion.
However it’s presently under the Sony umbrella, Bungie will “continue to independently publish and creatively develop our games,” Bungie CEO Pete Parsons said in a blog entry from the first declaration of the obtaining. What’s more, future games being developed will not be PlayStation special features, Bungie’s Joe Blackburn and Justin Truman said.
Be that as it may, Sony plans to rest on Bungie for its “world-class expertise in multi-platform development and live game services,” which “will assist us with following through on our vision of growing PlayStation to a huge number of gamers,” Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said in January.
