Bungie and Activision revealed that Destiny: The Taken King broke the record for the most downloaded day-one game in PlayStation history and set a new day-one franchise benchmark for both total players and peak online concurrency, surpassing the original Destiny launch day in September 2014, which was itself the biggest new video game franchise launch in history.
“Destiny: The Taken King is officially the most downloaded game on day-one in PlayStation history and set a new benchmark for both total Destiny players and peak online concurrency on day-one, so it’s safe to say the Destiny franchise continues to gain momentum,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Along with our talented partners at Bungie, we cannot wait to watch the community continue to grow and tackle the King’s Fall Raid kicking off on Friday.”
For those who wish to dive in to Destiny for the first time, the Legendary Edition includes:
- The core game
- Expansion I: The Dark Below
- Expansion II: House of Wolves
- The Taken King
Those who have already purchased Destiny along with both expansions can purchase a digital standalone copy of The Taken King.
