It's easy to blame Activision for the bad reception TWO, not one, Bungie games have received. It's not like their union was forced upon Bungie.

I want to know just how big Destiny of an IP is at the moment, with the game being given for free just months ago and the rise of Fortnite-like games, it doesn't look like the IP is standing on solid grounds.

I don't know the numbers currently for D2.  But, D1 was very big, on the new IP scale.  So, it is safe to say that the Destiny franchise is very significant.  Certainly not make-or-break for Activision. But, it is definitely worth some real money, considering that it has a fairly sizeable, extremely dedicated fanbase.
