    Bungo.

    Someone made the point elsewhere that an Activision in-house team did the port of D2 on PC so actually it may not be maintained by Bungie.

    Either way I still can't work this out from the Activision side. What did they leverage or gain. Bungie's side has multiple possible reasons for this to have happened.

    Vicarious Visions did the pc port development along with all the upkeep including expansions for pc.

    High Moon had to be brought in near ending of D2 vanila as bungie once again did a reboot a year from release.

    CoO: High Moon has to be brought in again to finish it as bungie we’re months behind schedule.

    Warnind: High Moon did most of it as apparently bungie hadn’t even started the programing.

    Forsaken: bungie once again missing the release date and months behind schedule, once again high Moon brought in to save the dlc.

    With all that Activision were simply cost cutting by letting bungie go, propping bungie up with 2 extra studios must of cost an absolute fortune. Honestly bungie sounds like a complete bunch of slackers sucking off others cash reserves while they f about not accomplishing much

    Indeed, I didn't miss them! Although ta for the detail.

    Even so Activision wouldn't have provided those resources for free, there are probably likely changes that had to be made (MTX) to the game or penalties on the contract. Even with all of that we know Destiny 1 and 2 were financially successful so even if D2:Forsaken missed targets was it unprofitable?

    It's possible Activision has received payment or other options in order to allow the contract to be terminated or bought out but it still feels as if we are missing something here.
