Will Bungie's blockbuster Destiny break sales records?
That remains to be seen but in an investors note today , Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia has predicted a possible sales range for the anticipated game: 8-15 million in 2014.
The firm is currently anticipating a final number closer to 15 million, given the huge response to the beta (4.6 million participants), and the fact that it's the #1 new IP pre-order in GameStop history. Another research firm, Cowen & Company, agrees with the assessment, saying Destiny could move 10-15 million this year. That might even outstrip perennial FPS kingpin, Call of Duty .
Activision better hope Destiny sells exceedingly well. They put half a billion dollars into this project, and we're pretty sure they're gonna want that back…with a lot extra.
