Not much else is known about Bungie’s new intellectual property. It has been talked about for years now, but Oni and Marathon’s study has never presented it to the public. Given the experience with Destiny and Destiny 2 it was quite obvious that it followed a similar economic model, so it is not surprising that it has thrown itself on free-to-play, which many millions of dollars is making to publishers such as Electronic Arts, Activision and Epic Games, just to name a few. In short, the future of the video game world is increasingly live service.
