It’s been hardly two months since Destiny came out, and Activision publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg during Activision Blizzard’s earnings call has already confirmed that the development on the sequel has already begun.
He seemed quite pleased with the launch of new IP as he talked about the future.
Work has also begun on future expansion packs as well as on our next full game release. We’re very pleased with the launch and continuing engagement.
In less than two months, Destiny has managed to get more than 9.5 million registered users, with active players playing the game for three hours a day on average.
In the same earnings call, Activision revealed that the game has managed to generate over $500 million non-GAAP revenues in this quarter.
Activision Blizzard’s CEO Bobby Kotick also praised the effort of Bungie as he stated that with Destiny’s launch, the company was able to get the “record” results.
Destiny was just launched on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, leaving the PC gamers behind but hopefully, next entry in the franchise will make its way to PC as well. It doesn’t hurt to wish, right?
In related news, Bungie revealed the first expansion for Destiny last week called The Dark Below, which will include new story missions, new crucible maps, a new raid and a couple of new strikes.
