It has been just 2 weeks since its worldwide launch and it has already shattered some historical records in the gaming industry. Without any doubt, the game did pretty well as compared to its previous part, Destiny, which was launched back in 2014 (almost 3 years from now) and it was then entitled to be the biggest new console game franchise launch in history.
Surprisingly enough, the new edition of the franchise, Destiny 2 reportedly broke this record within just a week of its launch as it was confirmed in a statement by the game developers themselves.
