Analysts Believe Destiny Could Sell 15 Million In 2014
Will Bungie's blockbuster Destiny break sales records?
That remains to be seen but in an investors note today, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia has predicted a possible sales range for the anticipated game: 8-15 million in 2014.
The firm is currently anticipating a final number closer to 15 million, given the huge response to the beta (4.6 million participants), and the fact that it's the #1 new IP pre-order in GameStop history. Another research firm, Cowen & Company, agrees with the assessment, saying Destiny could move 10-15 million this year. That might even outstrip perennial FPS kingpin, Call of Duty.
Activision better hope Destiny sells exceedingly well. They put half a billion dollars into this project, and we're pretty sure they're gonna want that back...with a lot extra.
