Destiny 2, Bungie’s sequel to the 2014 first person shooter, has had the biggest console launch week of the year so far.
In a statement released today, Activision announced that Destiny 2 has had the biggest launch week for a console game.
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said of the launch: “We hit some great milestones this week with our community.” He added, “We are blown away that we’ve had eight days in a row in Destiny 2 where we’ve seen more than one-million concurrent players grace our worlds. It’s equal parts inspiring and humbling, and we’re looking forward to showing everyone what’s coming next!”
No firm numbers have been announced, however, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg was extremely positive regarding the launch: “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.”
