Bungie has been quietly working on a new game that is not Destiny for some time, and today the studio recognized it for the first time, announcing a partnership with the Chinese publisher NetEase that will generate $ 100 million.
"Today, we are pleased to announce that we have established a new partnership with NetEase to help us explore new directions," the company said on its website. "With their experience in the industry, they will help us build new worlds and invite players, new and old, to join us there, helping us support separate teams within Bungie to bring our most recent ambitions to life."  Although the blog entry does not mention the number, Bungie told the Wall Street Journal that NetEase made a large $ 100 million investment in the Longrunning study.
"If you are a player of Destiny this news will not affect the hobby you know. Destiny is an experience that will grow for many years to come." We will continue working with our Activision partners to promote This global community and convert new players from around the world into Guardians Our commitment to that world is not diminished by this announcement We have exciting plans for the future of the franchise Destiny and will learn more about the upcoming steps that we will take together in the coming weeks.
