Activision Blizzard says Destiny hits record day-one sales for PlayStation Store
Bungie and Activision Publishing, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (ATVI), delivered the world-renowned, first-person action game, Destiny 2, to players across the globe on September 6 on PlayStation 4 systems with additional, timed exclusive content, and Xbox One.
The original Destiny became the biggest new console video game franchise launch in history, and Destiny 2 surpassed the original’s records for engagement and digital sales in launch week.
This universe will welcome players in on a new platform next month for the first time on PC.
Destiny 2 PC is available for pre-order now and is coming October 24 at retail and as the first non-Blizzard game to be offered digitally via Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment’s online gaming service.
“With franchise pre-order records broken, and record day-one performance on PlayStation Store, it’s exciting to see engagement at the highest ever week-one concurrency for the franchise.
Destiny 2 is off to a strong start as the #1 console gaming launch week of the year to date,” said Activision CEO Eric #Hirshberg.
“With the PC version yet to ship, Destiny 2 sets the stage for being one of the biggest video game entertainment events of the year.”
#Destiny2 is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and is available at a suggested retail price of $59.99.
