It sounds like the suits are pretty pleased with sales performance so far. In a press release, Bungie announced that the multiplayer shooter has already set a new record for the first day of sales in the PlayStation Store, overshooting its predecessor’s achievements in that area.
While the studio wasn’t giving specific numbers for units solid on either console, Bungie did say that Destiny 2 has racked up eight days of topping a million players enjoying the game concurrently. We do know that the game has topped retail charts in Japan, cranking out over 50K sales in its first week.
“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.”
Sounds like this calls for a dance party!
