Sony to Buy Videogame Maker Bungie for $3.6
According to CNBC, Sony’s shares rose significantly by 4.3% after the completion of the deal, following Sony’s separation from Microsoft.
Sony‘s deal to buy Bungie follows the $12.7 billion Take-Two deal that will take over Destiny and Halo with this deal.
Bungie will continue to operate independently within Sony, which will continue to provide it on a variety of platforms, as Microsoft created Halo in 2011, and its most recent games were released on Xbox and Windows last year.
