With tons of game company buyouts and acquisitions, the two most valuable commodities in the games industry are now content and the developers responsible for the content. Buying a franchise like Destiny doesn't mean much without also buying Bungie to manage it. These acquisition sprees have led to high turnover rates as more developers leave and join other studios. Bandai Namco wants to preserve its developers, so that's why it's offering a big raise (similarly, Sony has also allocated over $1 billion as an incentive plan to retain Bungie employees).
