Activision Bungie Split, Cross Platform Parties & More (Ep. 59)

In the 59th episode of Third Player Games Podcast, we have arguably what is the heaviest week of video game news in a long while. The woes continue for Activision as they split with Bungie and lose Destiny in the process. This results in a stock nosedive for Activision Blizzard. Gearbox CEO and former Gearbox counsel go at it like children in a   legal battle. Nice stories about as well though! Fortnite Creator Tim Sweeney is buying thousands of Acres of Forest to stop them from being cut down. Also, rumors that N64 Classic & Gamecube classic is a thing. Valve announces eight upcoming big changes coming to Steam. Another canceled Star Wars game and of course to top it off we have an 87-year-old grandmother who’s invested almost 4,000 hours of gameplay into Animal Crossing New Leaf.
