Bungie Pokes Fun at the Apollo 11’s Moon Landing with Destiny’s Stats Easter Egg
One of the favorite topics of discussion between conspiracy theorists is the allegation that the Apollo 11 never really landed on the moon, but that the whole affair was staged. Incidentally, the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of the landing were held just a few days ago.
Looks like Bungie was in a satirical mood when they created the infographic for thestatistics of the beta in the latest update blog post.
As you can see below, the infographic mentions that over 851,000 players visited the moon in the game, while 1,969 “claimed to have landed on the moon, but totally faked it.” The number is an obvious reference to the Apollo 11 mission, which landed on the moon in 1969.
I guess the folks at Bungie will have to be careful. Someone might decide to punch them in the face for this.
