General consensus: people are happy for Bungie.
Today’s industry-shaking news that prominent game developer Bungie and titanic publisher Activision were ending their planned 10-year agreement roughly halfway in – with Bungie retaining the Destiny IP and planning to continue supporting and self-publishing the popular game – sent shockwaves throughout the gaming community.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox
Cliff Bleszinski, longtime Epic Games developer and creator of Gears of War
DeeJ, Bungie Community Manager
Mark Rein, Epic Games Vice President
Mike Ybarra, Xbox Corporate Vice President
