According to an LinkedIn profile from an artist at NetEase Games, the company is working with Bungie on an “unannounced FPS mobile game” that could very well be Destiny for mobile. Bungie, recently acquired by Sony to become part of PlayStation Studios, has had quite a bit of success with both Destiny and its sequel as back-to-back hits.
The sequel has a firm foothold within the gaming community and is about to get even bigger with new expansion packs and content. Perhaps as a way to bring in an even bigger crowd, Bungie could team up with one of the biggest players in mobile gaming, NetEase, to bring Destiny to mobile.
NetEase recently worked on bringing Diablo to mobile and teamed up with Blizzard to develop Diablo Immortal, which has been a roaring success thus far.

Destiny for mobile could just be on the map
Bungie is one of the most resilient and consistent studios in the history of gaming and is often regarded as one of the best studios in the history of the medium. The studio’s first claim to fame was Halo and its subsequent sequels, but after Halo 3, the studio decided to say goodbye to the IP and start working on something completely different.
That eventually led to Destiny and while the franchise got off to a rather rocky start, the studio was able to correct course and the game was accepted by the community as a whole. The mobile platform is in a bit of a gold rush right now, with a lot of major studios and publishers bringing their best IPs to the platform.
Activision is currently working on bringing Warzone to mobile, while EA and Respawn recently had a big hit with the launch of Apex Legends Mobile. While Bungie has proven its prowess with great console and PC shooters, it will be interesting to see if they see the same success on the mobile platform.
