It suppose to be ship not shit...
Its not really interesting. Its just reality. If you want to 
build iOS game you are forced by circumstances to write it in 
swift. If you want to make multi platform(PC and consoles) game 
based on Unreal engine you are forced to use C++. If your program 
requires certain library you would choose a language that has 
access to that library. It would be foolish to pick D in those 
situations. That said if you want to make a server for a game 
then D start to shine because game server require lots of custom 
code. When it comes to writing custom code I dont think any 
language on the market is better than D.
