The secrets of Destiny, the most expensive video game in history
500 people. Five years. $ 500 million. These are the gigantic figures produced prior to the release Tuesday of Destiny, the most anticipated online game of the year and the most expensive in history.
For years the budgets for video games compete with the big Hollywood films, but Destiny took that trend to another level.
His budget, which includes production costs and overall a huge promotional campaign, approximately doubles the movie Avatar, for example. And it's twice what it cost to produce and promote the video game Grand Theft Auto V.
Destiny and scored two records before its release: he made in July as evidence of the history of a beta version, which involved 4.5 million players, and now just beat the record for orders in advance for a video game line.
