Destiny Is The Most Pre-Ordered New IP In Game History
GameStop already announced that Destiny was the most pre-ordered new IP in the retailer's history.
Now, publisher Activision has confirmed that in fact, Destiny is the "most pre-ordered new video game IP in history." Well, that stands to reason, as GameStop has been around for quite a while and they're the biggest game retailer in the world.
Activision also believes Destiny could be similar to Halo, in that it'll be big enough to impact pop culture beyond the gaming sphere. That's undoubtedly true, especially if the game remains super popular for years to come. Said Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg:
"Destiny has been a labor of love and a remarkable creative journey for everyone at Activision and Bungie. We feel that we have the opportunity to launch something huge--not just into the gaming landscape, but the pop cultural landscape. Arriving at our launch day with this much support and enthusiasm from fans and retailers is downright exciting. Moments like this just don't come around very often."
It's true that most gamers seem to really love Destiny, which is why sales should go through the roof. The game officially launches tomorrow and if you're planning to skip school or work to grab it and play, well...you're not the only one.
