PC gamers were anxiously waiting for Destiny 2 to land on their preferred gaming platform so it was expected that the title would likely do well on the platform. However, it appears that Destiny 2 has done better than expected on PC. Activision has revealed that Destiny 2 was its biggest PC launch ever.
It’s a big achievement for Activision even though the vast majority of its titles always perform the best on consoles. Nevertheless, this achievement was significant enough that Activision felt it prudent to mention it as one of its highlights for the previous year.
Activision has seen considerable success with Destiny 2 on all platforms that the game was launched on, this includes the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Activision mentioned that Destiny 2 was the second highest-grossing game on consoles last year with Call of Duty: WW2 taking the first place.
The original Destiny title was console-only so it didn’t arrive on PC. It seems that PC gamers really wanted to play Destiny because the second title performed better (based on unit sales) on PC than any other title has done in Activision’s history.
Activision earned more than $1 billion in revenue last year and it pointed out in its 2018 annual meeting notice that sales of Destiny 2’s expansion pass have also contributed to this figure. It’s going to provide more information about the numbers and may also offer a glimpse of its 2018 plans when the full Q1 2018 results are announced tomorrow.
