Destiny 2 has claimed the crown for “biggest console game launch week of the year,” as well as pulling in the largest amount of day one sales on the PlayStation Store.
What’s more, Destiny is the number one console-only game viewed on Twitch (by minutes watched). The Raid, called “Leviathan,” went live for players on Sept. 13 and immediately shot to the #1 position on Twitch based on total concurrent viewers.
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, “We hit some great milestones this week with our community.” He added, “We are blown away that we’ve had eight days in a row in Destiny 2 where we’ve seen more than one-million concurrent players grace our worlds. It’s equal parts inspiring and humbling, and we’re looking forward to showing everyone what’s coming next!”
“Destiny 2 is off to a strong start as the #1 console gaming launch week of the year to date,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “With the PC version yet to ship, Destiny 2 sets the stage for being one of the biggest video game entertainment events of the year.”
Bungie and Activision sound pretty happy, and I can’t say I blame them! This has been a huge win for the game.
