Destiny 2 Is The Best Selling Console Game So Far This Year In The U.S., Says Activision

Activision's quarterly report has come out and to say they're proud of their numbers would be an understatement. The publisher reports that Destiny 2, its biggest release so far this year, has been the best selling console game in the U.S. so far in 2017.

The Destiny sequel is also on PC for the first time ever, which even further increases its numbers, but those are not taken into account for this quarter or the game's console sales numbers. These are just the versions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and, by those criteria, Destiny 2 has sold better than pretty much any of its competition.

Also of note is that Destiny 2 on consoles has a 50% digital sell-through, with Activision stating that half the copies of the game have been sold through digital storefronts. Destiny 2, released in September, received critical acclaim for its improvements over the previous game. You can find our review of the title here.

Our Take
In a hotly contested year, Destiny 2 emerging at the top is brag-worthy. If PC sales do well, then the only thing that even might touch it is Battlefront II.
