Destiny Could Outsell Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

by Damian Seeto


Destiny and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are not out yet, but one analyst thinks Destiny will be the more popular of the two big Activision titles.

A report from Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has been released and published on VentureBeat. According to pre-order figures right now, Destiny could be in line to become the best selling game of 2014. They believe the game could sell between 10 to 15 million copies raking in a cool $600 to $900 million in the process.

Creutz has mentioned pre-order figures for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been slower than previous Call of Duty games. Things could pick up though since the game isn’t out until November. Destiny is out in September so pre-order figures would be higher since the release date is sooner.

It’s also interesting to note based on the analysis, Creutz predicts Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Assassin’s Creed Unity will sell very well in 2014 along with Far Cry 4 too. He doesn’t have high hopes for EA’s Battlefield: Hardline though as the game doesn’t have the same level as hype as Battlefield 3 or 4 did in the past.

Grand Theft Auto V managed to outsell Call of Duty: Ghosts last year to it’s entirely possible Destiny could outsell Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Destiny is a new IP and is something fresh. Many gamers have become fatigued with the annual release of Call of Duty games despite the franchise still selling well.
