Destiny 2 pulls in 1.2M concurrent online players


The first game arrived on previous gen consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360 along with PS4 and Xbox One. Destiny 2's physical sale numbers have probably more to do with the fact that purchases are now more online than in person, given that Destiny 2 has still taken the #1 place for sales in the UK. The developer revealed that 1.2 million players were online concurrently on September 9th. Still, few could deny the impressive nature of this figure, especially with a release limited to consoles. Modern gamers are now used to expansions being announced so soon after release, and it is hard not to be cynical and ask why they simply did not include this content with the base game.

Players have already been eagerly awaiting the first rumoured DLC for Destiny 2, Curse of Osiris. Let us know in the comments! This is slightly higher than the original Destiny which was even closer at around 51% to 49% across both PS3/PS4 and Xbox 360/Xbox One.

In other sales news, PS4 exclusive Knack 2 debuted at number 12 on the chart. Why are Bungie restricting this? I'm still trying to wait for the PC version myself.

Things seem to have been going very well so far too, as over the weekend more than 1.2 million guardians were logged in to Destiny playing at once.
