Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

Expanding the universe
through interactivity

We harnessed research-led insight into player behaviour to launch the latest instalment in the ongoing Destiny saga. Echoing the expansion premise which pits players as ‘psychic detectives’, we challenged fans with a social-first, interactive campaign inspired by the central proposition, ‘question everything’.

Contextualising game lore within this narrative wrapper, we compelled each audience segment to get up to speed ahead of the expansion — activating the core, re-energising the lapsed, and eliminating any fears of ‘I’ve missed too much’ for new players.

The campaign was designed to provoke intrigue and speculation — fuelling the social fire and turning the core into evangelists to spread the word.

The campaign increased social engagement by 32% on Instagram and 65% on Twitter, driving 1m pre-orders a month before launch. The Witch Queen became the first expansion in Destiny’s 8 years to out-sell its predecessor.
