Bungie is joining the PlayStation Family

In what some would see as a left of field decision Sony today announced that legendary developer Bungie will be joining the Playstation family in a US 3.6 Billion deal. 
Jim Ryan, President & CEO at Sony Interactive Entertainment took to the SIE Blog to say, 
“Bungie’s world-class expertise in multi-platform development and live game services will help us deliver on our vision of expanding PlayStation to hundreds of millions of gamers. Bungie is a great innovator and has developed incredible proprietary tools that will help PlayStation Studios achieve new heights under Hermen Hulst’s leadership.”

Bungie has been at the top of their game for some time now and my hour counter in Destiny 2 across multiple platforms shows just how much I enjoy the worlds they build. 
Further more both Bungie and Playstation have confirmed that Bungie will remain a multiplatform independent studio that is under the Playstation umbrella. 

Here are a few words from Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios about this exciting acquisition and what it means for gamers.
I am absolutely thrilled to announce a new member will be joining the PlayStation family!
I’ve been a fan of Bungie for many years. I have admired and enjoyed the games that they create – and have great respect for their skill in building worlds that gamers want to explore again and again.
Bungie makes games with outstanding technology that are enormously fun to play. They also have unmatched dedication to the communities that play their games, and everyone at PlayStation, and PlayStation Studios, will be excited about what we can share and learn from them.”
