It’s hard to believe that Destiny launched just over a month ago, but I suppose it’s easy to lose track of time while partaking in daily Strike missions, waging battle in the Iron Banner, or braving The Vault of Glass. Fortunately, the team at Bungie has been keeping track and recently released a fresh batch of stats to commemorate Destiny’s one-month anniversary.
In a post on Bungie.net, Bungie reports that each day Destiny sees over 3.2 million players spanning average gameplay sessions of roughly three hours. In the past three weeks, Destiny has seen more players online than the same period for two of Bungie’s biggest games, combined. And the Destiny community shows no signs of slowing — the average Destiny player has logged 20.9 sessions in the last month, with most playing multiple times a day at an average rate 1.8 sessions each day.
"It's been an incredible first month for Destiny," said Pete Parsons, COO Bungie. "Players are logging more hours per day then any game we have ever made, our servers have withstood millions of guardians experiencing Destiny and none of it would have been possible without our amazing community. Thank you all for the great first month and we look forward to sharing many more with you."
In the weeks and months to come, Destiny players will get to experience new in-game events, like the recent Queen’s Wrath bounties and the Iron Banner. And, of course, Destiny’s first expansion The Dark Below is slated to arrive in December. In the meantime, check out the complete range of one month stats and a closer look at The Iron Banner on Bungie.net and be sure to follow @DestinyTheGame and @Bungie on Twitter.
