Activision’s quarterly report has come out to say they’re proud of their numbers, but that would be an understatement. The publisher reports that Destiny 2, its biggest release so far this year, has been the best selling console game in the U.S. so far in 2017.
The Destiny sequel is also on PC for the first time ever, which even further increases its numbers, but those are not taken into account for this quarter or the game’s console sales numbers. The ones that are in account are the versions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and by those criteria, Destiny 2 has sold better than pretty much any of its opposition.
Also Destiny 2 on consoles has reached a 50% digital sell-through, Meaning that half of the copies of the game have been sold through digital storefronts. Destiny 2, released in September and has received critical acclaim for its improvements over the previous game.
