Just yesterday, Activision held its Q2 2018 investor call to discuss its future releases and the past quarter, but the company left Destiny 2 out of the discussion when it came to talking about accomplishments during the period, implying that the sequel didn’t meet financial expectations. While those who paid full price for the title during its release back in October of last year failed to give the game enough of a monetary push to be mentioned in Activision’s Q2 2018 earnings call, fans who have been holding out to get Bungie’s science fiction shooter on the cheap are now being offered the best price yet to give it a go.
Starting today, anyone who decides to sign up for $12 to receive June 2018’s Humble Bundle will be given a copy of the PC version of Destiny 2, which is an incredibly deep discount from the current manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $60. What’s more is that not only will subscribers receive Destiny 2, but also they will eventually get even more titles from the service that are going to be revealed at a later date.
For those unaware, this is the initial instance of Destiny 2 being offered in the monthly subscription service, and it has been included as a Humble Bundle deal just in time for anyone who happens to be looking forward to the science fiction shooter’s Warmind DLC, which is set to become available on May 8, 2018. Bearing this in mind, any budget-minded PC gamer who has been waiting to jump into the action of Destiny 2 likely won’t find a cheaper alternative elsewhere.
Destiny 2 is far from the first major game by a AAA developer to be included in Humble Bundle’s monthly package, as the subscription service provided Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Mafia 3 for April, while May’s subscribers will get Dead Rising 4 and Kerbal Space Program. Of course, while those titles had been on the market for more than a year prior to their availability by way of Humble Bundle, it has only been about six months since Destiny 2‘s launch. With this being the case, this offer could be viewed as a deal that Activision and Bungie are surely hoping will spike sales of the aforementioned Warmind DLC in order to make additional revenue.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
