While it seems Destiny 2 isn’t faring any better than Destiny 1 when it comes to overall unit sales, it seems the sequel is raking in more money overall according to Activision. During the publisher’s Q3 2017 earnings call, Activision exec Collister Johnson shared a few highlights regarding Destiny 2, and how it’s ahead of the first one in terms of expansion pack attach rates and more.
Destiny 2 is off to a strong start and after the PC launch is now ahead of Destiny 1 on total consumer spend, on time spent per player, attach rate to the expansion packs and average revenue per user. Destiny 2 also achieved a new high watermark in digital full game downloads at over 50% of console sell-through.
So not only are Destiny 2 players spending more time on the game compared to the first one, but they’re also spending more money too? Are you surprised by this revelation or not at all?
