$500M in Game Copies Shipped As of Day 1 | Destiny |

According to a report at Eurogamer, Bungie and Activision-Blizzard are reporting that it has shipped over $500M Destiny copies. There is a semantic difference in that shipped copies are not copies sold to customers. The fact remains, however, that this is easily the most successful video game of all time in these terms.

"Since the beginning, we've been confident that our investment and belief in Destiny would pay off. But not many people believed we'd be able to say it did so on day one," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "Destiny is officially the biggest new franchise launch in our industry's history. It's also the highest-selling day one digital console release in history. We have more confidence than ever that Destiny will become one of the iconic franchises of this generation, and Activision's next billion dollar brand. Most importantly, it's just a great game which we can't stop playing. A big thanks to our incredibly talented team and partners who helped make this happen, most importantly, our partners at Bungie."
