Activision: Destiny has big potential, while Ghosts preorders “well below” Black Ops 2
Activision’s publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg took his time today to discuss with the fans how he sees the future of Destiny and Call of Duty: Ghosts, both games being in a billion-dollar category and having a well established fan base.
First off, the company has very high hopes for Destiny, a game that they think will set the all-time preorder record for a new franchise. If this comes true, the game will join the third active billion-dollar franchises, alongside Call of Duty and Skylanders.
Second, Activision revealed that they are not as pleased with Ghosts’ preorders, which are well below Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. He blaims this on the people’s uncertainties when it comes to next-gen consoles.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be released on 5 November for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC (next-gen versions are still in development). Destiny will be released in 2014 for both current-gen and next-gen consoles.
