Destiny’s mediocre reviews could cost Bungie millions.

This is the first non-Halo game Bungie has made in over a decade, confirming what I’ve long-suspected about them as a game developer: overrated.

Destiny is not getting great review scores. In fact, it’s getting resoundingly mediocre review scores—as of right now, Bungie’s ambitious shooter has a 76.29% on GameRankings and a 77 onMetacritic.

That’s certainly not the type of critical reception Activision was hoping for when they pumped half a billion (!) dollars into this franchise, and the mediocre reception may wind up costing Bungie a great deal of money, if their 2010 contract is still active. Turns out those review scores—those arbitrary attempts to quantify a game’s subjective quality—might be worth $2.5 million.
