It’s been 6 years since Bungie and Activision released Destiny, and fans across the internet are celebrating. Its sequel Destiny 2 came out only 3 years ago, but the original was the first of a lovable franchise. Happy anniversary to everyone at Bungie for the hard work they’ve accomplished!

Now with a loyal fanbase of 167 million players, the replies are filled with positivity and memories. The title released on September 9th, 2014, and was previously published by Activision until the developer Bungie decided to go on their own. Even without the help of the publisher, they were able to create a sequel with incredible DLCs being pumped out, even to this day.
If you haven’t heard of it, Destiny is an online first-person looter-shooter. This is a PvE style RPG in a mystical science fiction universe. As the Guardian, your job is to protect your city from several different alien races. Even if the title didn’t live up to everyone’s praise, Bungie kept going and eventually found the audience and game they were looking for.
