Sony is buying Bungie, the developer of Destiny and the original creator of Halo, for $3.6 billion. The acquisition arrives shortly after Microsoft’s announcement that it intends to acquire Activision Blizzard in a deal worth $68.7 billion. Bungie will “continue to independently publish and creatively develop our games,” Bungie CEO Pete Parsons writes in a blog post.

What exactly are they buying other than the IP rights? Gaming companies usually have a complete staff turnover with each wave of AAA title revisions. The office buildings?

Remember, people, to forgive is divine. In other words, it ain't human.

You answered your own question. They want the rights to the franchises.
