Bungie’s highly-anticipated new game Destiny has a huge scope, but now we’re seeing just how big that scope is reaching, financially.
According to Reuters, at the Milken conference in Los Angeles last week, Kotick revealed just how much money they could end up spending on this truly massive game. He said the following:
“If you’re making a $500 million bet you can’t take that chance with someone else’s IP,” he stated. “The stakes for us are getting bigger.”
This is, without question, an insane amount of money and will be one of the biggest budgets in the history of all of gaming. Reuters was informed that, in order for the game to break even, Bungie would need to push around 16 million copies of the game.
