It was also the biggest PC launch in Activision’s history with regards to units sold.
Though Bungie has yet to confirm the next major DLC for Destiny 2, which is scheduled to release in May with the next “season” of content, Activision has already confirmed a major new expansion due in September. This was during the company’s fourth quarter and year-end earnings for 2017 where it noted that Destiny 2 was the second highest-grossing console title in North America. It also saw the largest PC launch for Activision in terms of units.
Interestingly, Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg said that Bungie wanted Destiny 2 to be “less of a grind, and provide a more direct path to rewards” but this caused veterans to reach end game must faster than it thought. Which is funny considering the utter lack of end-game content when the game launched. Nonetheless, Hirshberg said that “the right plans are in place” to address concerns.
A “major” expansion can be equated to something like The Taken King for Destiny 1 which included a new raid, a large new area, a significant number of story and side quests, new weapons and major changes. No information is available on what’s in store Destiny 2’s big expansion.
