How has the Corona Virus affected video game companies? Is Bungie doing anything special?
Right now, there is a bit of an epidemic going on in the world right now via the Corona Virus. And because of this, many are taking precautions to ensure that others don’t get sick. This includes Bungie, who are encouraging their workers to say at home and do work if they feel it’s best.
In response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak we are initiating a work from home policy at Bungie for the safety of our employees.

They continued on by noting:
“Bungie’s approach to the COVID-19 outbreak is designed to react to rapid changes as news dictates, including how we will eventually re-integrate employees back into our local offices once the threat of the virus has lowered. While this is a big change for Bungie, we look at the challenge as an opportunity to stretch our ability to create and deliver the same kind of quality gaming experiences we always have in a new way. Be well, take care of yourself, and see you online.”
