“In developing their forecast, SuperData evaluated the performance of Destiny 1 on both console and PC and how it compared to other AAA titles that launched during the same time period. The forecast also takes into account the expected early September launch date of the title, the impact of a Battlenet release on PC and macro-level digital download trends,” said the company.
Destiny 2 will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017 and arrives on PC in late October. Bungie will be launching a beta for the highly anticipated sequel next week on consoles, and those who pre-ordered the game can preload the Destiny 2 beta later today for early access. The former Halo developer recently showcased the new hub world for Destiny 2, which includes its own football pitch among other attractions.
The sequel will also introduce a number of changes over its predecessor, including an overhauled Crucible experience that will focus on 4v4 battles, plus an expanded sandbox environment that includes new side quests dubbed Adventures. The game takes place following the events of Rise of Iron and picks up in the aftermath of an attack by The Red Legion, a deadly Cabal-led unit that has left the Tower in ruins and scattered the local Guardian population.
