Today, Bungie confirmed they’re working on a new project but with a Chinese technology company called NetEase.

For those unaware, NetEase is a Chinese company who’ve done work with Blizzard with titles such as Overwatch and World of Warcraft.

“Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve entered into a new partnership with NetEase to 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.”

It’s unclear what this project is or how this partnership with benefit Bungie but the studio did want to assure fans that Destiny will not be affected.

“If you’re a player of Destiny, this news won’t impact the hobby you’ve come to know. Destiny is an experience that will grow for many years to come. 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. Our commitment to that world is not diminished by this announcement. We have exciting plans for the future of the Destiny franchise, and you’ll learn more about the next steps we’ll take together in the weeks to come.”

It’s unlikely we’ll hear anything on this new project at E3 but it should generate interest seeing that Bungie has had a troublesome relationship with their community following Destiny 2’s release.
