Today we have further information, this time from the NPD Group, that sheds some additional light on just how poorly this new sci-fi horror/shooter performed.

    We were given our first look at Destiny 2: Lightfall back in August. Today, Bungie decided to share a bit more about a few aspects of that new expansion, but not too much. Today's focus is on Neomuna, a metropolis on Neptune, filled with big ol' skyscrapers and plenty of neon lights.

    The trailer, in addition to showing off all these pretty sights, also sheds some light (hah) on how Calus's invasion into...

The information shared here has only been seen in this one report and, even without any sort of translation issues, may still be inaccurate. The information coming out of Korea was also shared by MP1ST.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
