As if the $500 million of shipped Destiny wasn’t enough to notice Activision’s solid investment, Destiny has hit another high-water mark in the UK, topping the charts as the biggest new IP release in history.
Formerly, the top spot was held by Watch_Dogs with its monstrous release earlier this year. The numbers broken down per system are: PlayStation 4 with 46% of the sales, PlayStation 3 with 4%, Xbox One with 36% and Xbox 360 holding 14%. Good on ya, Activision and Bungie.
As if no one saw this coming. At least I did, I’ve been blowing the horn for this game for forever and this is just great news! I expect that Destiny’s success will only grow as more and more content is released over the next ten years.
Myles K Farrington is one of the MONG Senior Editors and has recently been losing a lot of sleep due to Destiny. There looks to be no end to the fatigue in sight and he’s not too broken up about it. Keep up with him over on IGN, Twitch, and Twitter as well!
