Destiny Could Sell 10-15 Million Analyst Says

Posted July 3, 2014 by Bunneh3000 in News

Bungie is one of those gaming developers who seems as if they could print their own money at this point. As the creators of the legendary Halo franchise, they probably could retire as a studio and be happy with the tattoo they’d left on the world. Thankfully, ambition is a dish best served in 2014!

Their next IP entitled Destiny is a highly customizable console based MMOFPS with huge earning potential that Activision is hoping will pay off in a similar Halo-styled fashion in the coming months. Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has crunched a bunch of statistical numbers based on past bestsellers and has predicted that this coming holiday season will bring Destiny between 10 and 15 million in sales. That amounts to about $600 to $900 million in sales.

This analysis also looks at the rest of the games on the ticket for 2014 release the last half of this year as well. According to the scores given each game, it looks as if Halo:The Master Chief Collection, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Far Cry 4 round out the top five in predicted sales for the year.

Interestingly enough the analysis predicts disappointed sales for Electronic Art’s next Battlefield experience, Hardline, as well as the upcoming Borderlands: The Prequel game.
