Back in June there were a lot of discussions about how much Activision is spending on Bungie’s Destiny, including a report that claimed the numbers are around half a billion dollars.

But the budget for destiny, including associated marketing costs and pizza Wednesdays, is nowhere near 500 million dollars.” it seems like the numbers were correct, but these were the costs for the entire franchise.
