His LinkedIn update also reveals that Tsai’s remit will include:
“leading projects and telling stories that extend the Destiny IP into new mediums including Film, TV, Animation, Books, Comics, and Audio formats.”
It’s speculated that Tsai’s new role is part of a wider push by Bungie into non-games media.
While speaking on the recent acquisition of Bungie for $3.6 billion, chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki also revealed that the Destiny developer is working on a “major new IP” and that the company plans to harness Bungie’s experience in the live service space going forward.
VGC recently spoke with GamesIndustry.biz‘s Christopher Dring, who was the first to break the announcement after speaking with both PlayStation and Bungie’s leaders.
“When Microsoft bought Activision Blizzard, they didn’t just buy Call Of Duty… they bought every game they’ve made in thirty years of history… Sony is a little more hesitant,” he said, after interviewing PlayStation boss Jim Ryan in advance of the announcement.
Bungie has said that all cross-platform support for Destiny 2 will continue and confirmed that its future games will not be PlayStation exclusive.
