Bungie also tweeted about the game's appearance on Jeopardy, asking, "Did the contestants get it right?" As it turns out, contestant Dennis was the first to correctly answer the question.

It's not the first time that Destiny has appeared outside of the video game industry. Earlier this month a high school marching band performed music from the game's soundtrack. The game's popularity shouldn't come as a surprise, given that the Destiny companion app recently hit a new milestone of 7,777,777 users.

In other recent Destiny news, Bungie has brought microtransactions to Destiny for the first time ever. Just a few days ago the studio rolled out patch, which introduced better rewards to the Nightfall mission and more. The most recent expansion, The Taken King, was the fifth most-sold game at retailers in the United States for the month of September.
