Bungie's blockbuster shooter Destiny has grossed more than $325 million in five days since its release, publisher Activision has announced.
Though the corporation previously noted that it had already made more than $500 million from selling copies of the game to retailers and first parties, since release the game has made about $325 million from individual customer purchases.
That figure is based on Activision's internal estimates, calculated from data by sales monitors, first parties, and retailers.
Activision has yet to reveal sales unit data for Destiny. However, the publisher adds that Destiny players have logged more than 100 million hours of online play in a single week since release.
"Destiny fans played more than 100 million hours of the game in the first week. That's on par with the engagement levels of our most popular Call of Duty games, which obviously is an industry leader," said Activision publishing executive Eric Hirshberg.
"Millions of gamers are having a great time playing Destiny and can't put down their controllers. And this is just the beginning. Destiny is a platform that will grow and evolve and we will continue to work closely with our partners at Bungie to bring a long line of new experiences and content to life in the game."
Developer Bungie continues to update its shared-world FPS. On Tuesday, it unlocked the first Raid mission for players on level 26 and above, while one day later it doubled the frequency of its Public Events.
