Denies Reports About Bungie Stock
As mentioned earlier by the gaming site Kotaku, Activision has been in trouble recently involving the game developer Bungie. However, Activision was quick to act and denied the highly controversial report about Bungie, saying that there is no such story where Activision is awarded Bungie stock.
According to Kotaku, Bungie employees' stock vesting schedules are based on game releases. This means that the closer they hit targets, the better stock options they are rewarded.
Bungie wasn't under any major threat to release the upcoming game sequel "Destiny 2" next year, but instead, Bungie will be rewarded if "Destiny 2" will be released on 2017. And Bungie employees are reportedly poised to collect those rewards.
"Destiny 2" is scheduled for released sometime in 2017.
