In the wake of its release nearly two weeks ago, Bungie and Activision’s “Destiny 2” has surpassed the original’s records for engagement and digital sales in launch week – and that’s before it even hits PC.
The original game became the biggest new console video game franchise launch in history, while the new one broke franchise pre-order records and the record for the day-one performance on PlayStation Store. It is also the #1 console gaming launch week of the year to date.
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, says for eight days in a row the company saw more than one-million concurrent players grace the worlds of the game.
In the game, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new army. Players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home.
“Destiny 2” is available now on PS4 & Xbox One and will be coming to PC on October 24th.
