Destiny becomes GAME’s most pre-ordered new IP

Ahead of its official worldwide release tomorrow, Destiny has claimed a big UK sales milestone.

Retailer GAME says that the Activision shooter has become its most pre-ordered new IP ever – not a bad achievement considering that it comes less than ten months into the new console cycle.

We look forward to welcoming a huge population of fans into our stores at midnight,” a generic press statement read. Tomorrow will be a pivotal moment for gamers all over the world, and we couldn't be more excited to be part of delivering what is a ground-breaking gaming experience."

Sony said at Gamescom last month that Destiny had claimed the title of the most pre-ordered new IP ever.

The next test for Destiny, which is released at midnight, is whether it can better Watch Dogs, which in June became the best-selling new IP ever in the UK.
