Destiny 2 is one of the most highly anticipated titles of this year , and if anything the game’s pre-order numbers further confirm this . The numbers are said to be going through the roof that is according to GameStop.
Although GameStop has not unveiled actual numbers, Eric Bright, the Senior Director Merchandising of GameStop has told Gamerant things are actually going pretty fine with respect to preorders of Destiny 2. Here’s what he said:
“The early results that we are seeing from Destiny 2 pre-orders are amazing. Consumers are really appreciating the uniqueness of our assortment. Our ‘Only@ GameStop’ exclusive collectibles, such as our Gjallarhorn Replica and the Destiny Warlock 7-inch Figure by McFarlane Toys, have been huge hits. Our exclusive game bundles also are providing fans of the franchise with a solution for one-stop shopping.”
This has actually turned out to be true since the Collector’s Edition of Destiny 2 preorders are coming to an end a bit too fast and are in shortage. As Bright mentioned, inclusion to the GameStop-exclusive $100 Limited Edition version of Destiny 2 and the Cayde-6 figure pre-order bonus, the corporation even has a number of other goodies from Destiny for the die-hard fans to get their hands on.
This goodie bag includes shirts and a life size replica Gjallhorn replica just to name a few. It’s clear that interest in Destiny 2 is at an all-tine high and shows no signs of stopping down.
For GameStop, the response is, undoubtedly, great news as they have currently announced that sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were pretty weak that concluded in 150 stores globally, shutting down. For now, GameStop has not witnessed a lot of good vibes, and with stock dropping down after announcement of Xbox Game Pass and after the firm came under fire for its infamous “Circle of Life” Program.
The game, Destiny 2, was officially confirmed and announced last week with the availability of pre-orders to begin the same day as the reveal trailer came out. Bungie, the developer of Destiny is going to unveil a first look at gameplay from the hotly anticipated sequel on May 18. It is, for now, in production and is set to launch on Sept 8th on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
