Bungie has reportedly teamed up with Chinese tech giant NetEase to develop the game, a process that has seemingly been going on "for well over two years now."
According to The Game Post, the LinkedIn profile of a NetEase Games artist reads that they helped develop "an unannounced FPS mobile game" with Bungie, something that an anonymous sources appears to have confirmed to be a new Destiny title.
The Game Post report also mentions that the upcoming Destiny mobile title is not related to Bungie’s current flagship title, Destiny 2.
At the time of publication, Bungie still has an active job listing for a "senior mobile platforms engineer" that wants to help "evolve Bungie’s internal game engine to support mobile platforms" (H/T The Game Report).
Of course, with all leaks and rumors, feel free to take this information with a grain of salt until it's confirmed by Bungie.
Ultimately, however, it would not be all that surprising to see this come to fruition.
From PUBG to Apex Legends, popular gaming franchises who put out their own mobile game adaptations have notoriously found major success in recent years — a trend that Activision is looking to continue with Warzone as well.
Additionally, NetEase certainly seems like a realistic partner, being a studio that isn't shy in developing games like Dead by Daylight Mobile.
Bungie remains in the process of being fully acquired by Sony for a reported $3.6 billion.
