GamingSoFar: Here we make a list of 10 Most Expensive Video Games to Develop including very popular names.
''estimated cost on the game is 500,000,000 Destiny game'' It must sell over 17 MILLION copies at full $60 retail to just BREAK EVEN. What also mean that every last man, woman that currently has an PS4 and and Xbox One must buy the game.
Dont forget DLC in the downrun.
Where the hell is Too Human? Wasn't it insanely expensive to make? Oh, and Bungie said the $$$ people are throwing around for Destiny's development are well inflated. But then again, they would say that so stock holders don't freak out.
I believe the $500 mil was for the franchise which is meant to last for next 10 years. That probably included future titles, DLC, online infrastructure, marketing etc. The first game itself certainly wont of cost anywhere near that
It's also on PS3 and Xbox 360 Destiny also has a limited edition at $100 and Ghost edition at $150 which is already sold out
Well activision said the budget wasnt close to that. Its actually less. Also, alot of people will be buying the special editions which are at 100 bucks or so.
Destiny is pretty high quality game but i never expected such a big budget to be honest.
Correct me if I am wrong; but isn't Destiny's 500 million dollar budget for the series not just the first entry? Secondly; I think the 200 million budget for COD:MW2 was mostly marketing not the actual development cost.
You're right, it is 500 million over a period of ten years
Journalism at its finest, its like they even bother to
It's $500M for the whole franchise. It's misleading.
well going by the games on this list Destiny is gonna be an extremely successful game
Bungie already said the game didn't cost 500M.
