Destiny 2 is expected to sell three million copies in three months, on PC alone

Destiny 2 4K max settings

Research firm SuperData think Activision aren’t going to regret releasing Destiny 2 on PC. In fact, they’re projecting that the shooter will sell three million copies in its first three months on our platform.

It’ll be the best-selling full-priced game since Overwatch, they say. Over all platforms, they are predicting that it’ll sell up to five million in its first three months, meaning hungry PC players will make up over half the game’s digital audience. 

The forecast was created by looking at the first game’s sales and comparing it to other games released in the same period. It also takes into account the launch date, its Battle.net release, and other factors. 

“As the buzz around specific titles continues to grow within the digital gaming industry as a whole, the forecaster offers a unique starting point for those thinking about sales scenarios,” Sam Barberie, vice president of product and business development at SuperData Research, says. “By pairing this with the SuperData Arcade, the digital gaming industry can now have a clearer picture of what drives sales success and how their future releases could gain an advantage.”

These forecasts will be changing monthly, however, reacting to announcements and trailer releases. It should provide an accurate ballpark figure, though.

"PC players will make up over half the game’s audience. "

The provided data only accounts for digital copies. With the amount of physical copies that will sell on console, this will unlikely be the case.

Pardon me for my language, but holy shit, I'm so excited! I haven't played Destiny but I've watched my friend play it and he loves it. Sadly, he plays ps4 and I play PC so I cross my fingers that it's cross platform..... Other than that, I'm getting that adrenaline bc of choosing a class, starting at the same start as everyone else. But yeah, I hope its cross-platform ughh.....

It is not going to be cross- platform sorry.

The PC version is going to be a fully fetch PC version with with it's own team working on it. It is relists on battle.net and will use blizzards social and friend systems.

The PC version is the best looking and going to preform the best, sins it its has no cap on frame rate and true 4K support.

Well if you want to play with your friend ether you have to go to PS4 or he have to come to the PC that's the only way you will be able to play Destiny 2 with him.
