Destiny 2 Hits Major Sales Milestones, Curse of Osiris Confirmed

Destiny 2 is the best Day one launch on PlayStation Network and it's outperforming the original in a couple ways. Curse of Osiris is also confirmed to be real.

Chances are, if you’ve decided to participate in the sci-fi loot-fest that is Destiny 2, you haven’t had any trouble finding people to play with. This may largely be due to Destiny 2 surpassing the original game’s engagement and digital sales records. Bungie didn’t specific sales numbers but announced via press release that Destiny 2 has snatched up the crown for best gaming launch week this year so far, which is only going to be compounded upon when the PC version releases on October 24.

Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, says in the press release, "We hit some great milestones this week with our community." He added, "We are blown away that we've had eight days in a row in Destiny 2 where we've seen more than one-million concurrent players grace our worlds. It's equal parts inspiring and humbling, and we're looking forward to showing everyone what's coming next!"

Activision’s CEO also shared that the game set a new record for Day 1 sales on the PlayStation Store and is pushing the envelope for concurrent players. “Destiny 2 is off to a strong start as the #1 console gaming launch week of the year to date," he adds. "With the PC version yet to ship, Destiny 2 sets the stage for being one of the biggest video game entertainment events of the year." With high concurrent player numbers, you shouldn't have any problems when turning the Public Events into their Heroic modifiers.

In another dose of good news for Destiny 2, the previously leaked Curse of Osiris DLC has been confirmed to be real. Bungie's Marketing Director tweeted that the DLC was, indeed, not a leak and joked that if he reached 49k followers on Twitter the company would be open to releasing it in 2017.

      I wish they would reveal the actual numbers. I wonder if it sold more than PUBG.

          Eh, PUBG has hit 10 million, I wouldn't be surprised if it takes Destiny 2 a sec to reach the same numbers.

              Long term sure, hell I'd expect it to beat them in under a month, just not sure yet.

              Not on all three platforms yet... the delayed release on PC will really castrate the numbers it would have had there. I would have bought day one because of the hype. Two months from now I won't care enough to bother.
