NetEase Buys Minority Stake In Bungie

NetEase has purchased a minority stake in Bungie, giving the Chinese tech company a seat on Bungie's board of directors and a potential inroad for the developer to bring its games to China.

According to a report from GamesIndustry.biz, NetEase invested more than $100 million in the studio. Bungie posted about the deal on its own site, saying in part that the partnership will "...help us explore new directions. With their industry expertise, they’ll empower us to build new worlds and invite players, new and old, to join us there. They’ll help us support separate teams inside Bungie to bring our newest ambitions to life."

The studio also addressed concerns that Destiny players might have. "We’ll continue to work with our partners at Activision to foster this global community and turn new players from all over the world into Guardians," the statement continued. "Our commitment to that world is not diminished by this announcement."
