Sony Buys Bungie And Isn’t Stopping There – Beyond 734

On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Jada Griffin, Mark Medina, and Matt Kim to break down the biggest PS4 and PS5 news of the week, namely the latest and biggest acquisition Sony has made in some time. Sony buys Bungie, and we discuss what’s next, and the implications of that purchase in Podcast Beyond! Episode 734. We look at why Sony would be interested in Bungie, and Bungie want to join Sony, how Bungie is a unique acquisition and will not necessarily fall under the PlayStation Worldwide Studios umbrella. There’s also the matter of potential Destiny TV shows or movies that seem of interest, Sony’s increasing investment in live-service games and how Bungie allows for that to accelerate, and, with Jim Ryan’s statements that Sony isn’t done picking up companies, which development studios would make the most sense, or be good fits, to join Sony PlayStation’s stable.

We also dig into all the other news in the world of PlayStation, like Ghostwire: Tokyo release date news, Suicide Squad’s delay, Discord integration for PlayStation users, Cyberpunk’s leak on the PSN, and more. Plus, Jada gives her thoughts on Dying Light 2: Stay Human!
