There were reports about the American video game publisher, Activision, being unhappy with the earnings of “Forsaken”, the latest major expansion of the first-person shooter game “Destiny 2”.
According to Activision, the earnings of “Destiny 2: Forsaken” is not performing well as expected.
Forsaken is a high quality expansion of content into the universe, honestly some of the highest quality content we’ve seen in the franchise to date.
We have not yet seen the full core re-engage in Destiny, which has kind of led to the underpeformance against our expectations to date.
Some players we think are still in wait-and-see mode. So when you’re in, you’re deeply engaged. If you’re not, we’re hoping now’s the time to bring players back in and win them back.
– Coddy Johnson, Activision chief operating officer
But Luke Smith, the director of Destiny 2, has responded via Twitter that their development team is not at all disappointed.
We are not disappointed with Forsaken. We set out to build a game that Destiny players would love, and at Bungie, we love it too.
Building Destiny for players who love it is and will remain our focus going forward.
