Destiny

It is no doubt that GTA V is the best selling title in video games industry in 2013, with shipping stunning 32.5 million units as of now. What about the best one in 2014? We have no idea yet but Destiny, the highly anticipated first person shooter, which is developed by Halo creator Bungie and published by Activision Blizzard, might be the answer of this question.

Speaking to investors in an earnings call on Thursday, Activision Publishing president and CEO Eric Hirshberg announced Destiny beta test is scheduled to start beta this summer.

Previously, Hirshberg stated that they believes Destiny "has the potential" to become its third billion-dollar franchise. "We believe Destiny could be Activision Publishing's third billion-dollar franchise, and we're working hard to make it the biggest new IP launch in video game history," he said. And he believes "Destiny will become the bestselling new video game [franchise] in history" when it hits store shelves later this year.

Call of Duty (Activision Blizzard) and Halo series have become the significant milestones in video games history, with over billion-dollor revenue both. The successful experience in these two great FPS titles might have become the key factor to succeed in running Destiny.

Destiny is slated to launch on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on September 9.
