Washington: Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick expects ` Destiny ,` the new game from Halo creators Bungie, to become the best-selling new video game IP ever.
Speaking during Activision`s fourth quarter earnings call, Kotick said that the first-person shooter, due out on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on September 9th, has the potential to become next billion-dollar franchise, the Verge reported.
Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg, said that although the publisher expected the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to generate "headwinds" in the video game market, sales of games on the new machines were "higher than expected."
