Activision Disappointed With Destiny 2 Forsaken Sales

"At BlizzCon, we announced that 'Destiny, ' the base game is free for two weeks, meaning download it by November 18, and you get to keep the base game forever", Activision CEO and president Coddy Johnson explained. Second, our growing stream of live operations, which includes content, services, features and events that engage our franchise communities and encourage new players to join.

We have not yet seen the full core re-engage in Destiny, which has kind of led to the underpeformance against our expectations to date. He says that although players think they're staying dormant but they're "hoping now is the time to work and bring players back in". If you're in, you're deeply engaged.

Presently, Destiny 2 uses Silver as its in-game currency. It's the same approach, to some degree, used by massive moneymakers like "Fortnite", which earns nearly all of its money from in-game purchases.

Destiny 2 Black Armory is the next scheduled content drop for the game, which launches in December.

Activision COO Cody Johnson talked about Forsaken's sales. But we'll have to wait and see whether they learnt their lesson from that...

Unfortunately for Activision, though they too make special mention of its "high quality", it hasn't proven good enough to rekindle interest in the game - at least measured by what we can presume are lofty expectations.

The free version of Destiny 2 will also come with a free gift that players will be able to claim as well. He did note, however, that players who are putting the hours into Destiny 2 are "deeply engaged" in the shared-world shooter. Heck, Destiny 2 was pretty much the top-grossing console game of the month, beating even the mighty Fortnite.

It remains to be seen how successful giving the game away will be in terms of spurring more in-game purchases and purchases of Forsaken and future expansion packs.

Bungie has been working on reviving Destiny 2 all year.
