Analysts Project More Sales For 'Destiny 2' As 'Red Dead Redemption 2' Gets Delayed
Gamestop believes that Destiny 2 will most likely enjoy great sales when it comes out this September. The video game retail company has recently talked about Take-Two Interactive's announcement regarding the 2018 delay for Red Dead Redemption 2. Initially, Bungie's sci-fi shooter and Rockstar Games' open-world Western title were both scheduled to launch in the same month this year.
While the delayed release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is surely a big disappointment for both players and the retailer, it is supposedly also considered by Gamestop executives as great news for other titles. According to its most recent earnings call, the video game retailer claims that Rockstar Games' cowboy title will "suck some dollars away from the other games." Its delay does not seem to have "an entire impact" as the company expects gamers to purchase other games like Destiny 2 or the new Call of Duty instead, reports Game Rant.
Gamestop does not seem to be affected at all by Red Dead Redemption 2's delay and even continued with the same sales forecast for the financial year. According to Rockstar Games, the sequel is being developed for current-gen platforms from the ground up, says Tweak Town. Meanwhile, Destiny 2 has also made a lot of improvements that were apparently credited to fan feedback. Bungie's sci-fi FPS is expected to offer a lot of new features that were previously expected from the first game.
Apparently, E3 2017 will "see some of the excitement around some of the games that we'll have that will help to share with you why we felt comfortable keeping" the same sales forecast, says Gamestop. Industry analysts agree that Red Dead Redemption 2 can cause gamers to lose interest in other AAA titles. Publishers with games scheduled for fall of 2017 like Bungie's Destiny 2 is surely going to experience great sales thanks to the delay.
According to Take-Two Interactive, Red Dead Redemption 2 was delayed because the company felt that it needed more polish. It is also not the first time the publisher pushed back a release date. Given its reason, fans have expressed appreciation for the developer's efforts to deliver great games every time. On the other hand, Bungie is bringing Destiny 2 to the PC for the first time. The PC version is reportedly the best version with an unlocked fps and an up-to-4K display resolution.
