Destiny 2 is Activision's "Biggest PC Launch"

Activision Publishing announces that Destiny 2 is the biggest PC game launch in the company's history. Here's word, where they do not offer any hard numbers:

Based on units, Destiny 2 has outsold Destiny, hailed as the “biggest new video game IP launch in history” at the time. The highly-acclaimed sequel is the first Activision title launched on Battle.net, and is the biggest PC launch in Activision Publishing history. The game has earned more than 90 awards and nominations to date. Activision and Bungie also released the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill for Amazon Alexa, a first of its kind for games, allowing players to ask Alexa and Ghost to perform in-game tasks.

I don't get all the hate. I have multiple high-level characters and I have never spent a dime on a loot box. There is no need. Maybe, in a round about way you could spend money to get blue mods to then create purple ones? Or, a purple one might drop? They can all be had by just playing the game.

Other than that (which is is no way necessary or even smart) the eververse stuff is all ships, shaders, and other stuff that provides no benefit in game as far as I can tell.

I've got all the weapons that are BIS for the raids, all the armor, and all of the mods I want and have never even thought about buying anything.

SWBFII was completely different. The boxes had the chance to give you significant upgrades to your build.

Maybe I'm missing something, but your post is fairly scathing of a mechanic that I have never experienced.

Well, Destiny/Destiny 2 are kind of designed for collecting. They've made some bad decision points- the shaders are charges now, and you use them up per piece of armor/weapon, and that royally sucks. So the bright engrams are important for the high end "collecting" stuff. Which kind of sucks because it's no longer tied to activity in game as much as it is either loot box or pay for loot boxes.

But I agree. I haven't felt the need to buy anything in Destiny 2 aside from content (I got the season pass version of the game for dirt cheap over black friday)

Edit: What I would love is Borderlands' loot system inside Destiny. The eleventy gajillion guns/armor combos would make me pretty happy.
