GS:Bungie Studios' first post-Halo project--shared-world shooter Destiny--has the potential to become Activision Publishing's latest billion-dollar series, according to CEO Eric Hirshberg.
Thats stretching it dont ya think lol
key word Series but still hella stretch lol mario hasnt even done a billion sells. I dont care if its multiplat i dont see it selling a billi. Plus they said Destiny will last 10 years so yeah. edit: you right didnt see dollar totally plausible since its coming out for ps3,xbox 360, ps4,xbox one, and probably Pc. Sorry Nintendo lol
Halo 4 brought in $220 million in one day. It says "billion-dollar." Not billion copies.
Mario doesn't have Micro transactions, cha-ching. Really dunno how it'll make over a billion dollars.
Bungie's last go netted them a cool 3 billion+ dollars, so I don't see why they couldn't do it again. Plus this time they can sell on more than one console.
I had no idea Halo (while under Bungie) had those kinda of numbers! Crazy.
@Battletorn How could you not know. From 2001 - 2007/8 Halo was the biggest thing in gaming. It wasn't until Modern Warfare was released that the COD series became the force that it is now
Not really - I don't think. Basically, what they're trying to say is, Destiny has the potential to replace Call of Duty. (or Halo)
Star Wars: The Old Republic also had the potential to be a billion-dollar series... and look what happened.
Due to poor mechanics. Can you see bungie making a game with poor shooting mechanics?
Well its freaking bungie! These guys knows exactly what they're doing when it comes to FPS games.
I liked what they showed at E3 and look forward to hearing more about it.
Destiny could be the next cash cow for Activision Here's my reasons 1)Bungie 2)Halo creators first game on PS brand hardware 3)fresh style of shooter on consoles
2) being made for Xbone as well so constrained
Activision+ Destiny x dlc = money pit. I still looking forward too this game
Woah, so Bungie weren't kidding when they mention world domination years ago.
Recent reports of comparison between Destiny and Borderlands 2 has put me off this game. I didn't like anything in B2. Gaudy graphics gave me headache. I sincerely hope Destiny is not like that. I'm going to hold buying it until I see gameplay footage for at least an hour or get to play demo.
