Eyes up, Guardian.

We’re not going to say that every publishing corporation has a tendency to sour and ruin things — but you’re going to be hard pressed to find someone not air-punching at the news that Bungie has split from Activision, and in doing so retained all the rights to Destiny.

The studio, as part of a statement, said “We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision for their partnership on Destiny. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce plans for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie”.

Activision voiced similar sentiments, with a tweet simply saying “Thank you Guardians. It has been an honour and a privilege to help bring the world of Destiny to life with you.”

Lovely sentiment, but don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Activision. We're still bitter about the DLC prices.
