Bungie boss says takeover of Sony won’t ‘suppress’ studio’s political views

Bungie was one of the first game studios to publicly support women’s “basic health care rights” after a drafting decision indicated the U.S. Supreme Court intended to overturn Roe v. Wade this summer. Sony, on the other hand, completely failed its attempt to avoid any controversy, and while it ultimately tried to clean up the mess it created, it did so in one of the strangest ways, donating a relatively paltry sum to the Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Program Donate. It also refused to approve “any statement made by any studio on the subject of reproductive rights.”

That’s led some fans to wonder about a potential ideological clash between the two, and whether Sony will “seal” the studio to avoid making a splash among gamers when it buys Bungie for $3.6 billion in January. But that’s obviously not a problem.
