Destiny has been regarded as the biggest game of 2014 by many. Its pre-orders follow that theme of popularity.

GameStop has confirmed with Activision that Destiny is the "most pre-ordered new IP in gaming history". There are already over one-million pre-orders alone, and the PS4 version takes up a bulk of those orders.

Vice President of Merchandising, Rob Puzon, said the following about the news:

With the launch of Activision’s Destiny just around the corner, our GameStop associates are working diligently to prepare for what is currently our highest pre-ordered new IP in history. Based on the consumer excitement we are encountering in our stores every day, Destiny is on track to deliver a tremendous gaming experience.
