Bungie have gleefully announced that Destiny 2 broke 1.2 million concurrent players on Saturday morning, indicating the game’s launch has been a roaring success.
Thank you all so much for playing, Guardians! Right now Destiny 2 has over 1.2 Million concurrent players online. We'll see you in the wild.— Bungie (@Bungie) September 9, 2017
In terms of sales, figures leaked to NeoGAF indicate that while Destiny 2 is topping the UK charts, physical sales are half those recorded for the original.
However, these figures do not take into account that Destiny 2 released on Wednesday, while the original had a day’s head start.
Additionally, digital sales have continued to supplant physical releases, meaning Destiny 2 may have proven most popular as a downloadable title.
With the PC release still to come next month, Destiny 2 is likely to see further success as it hits a market who’ve yet to join the fray.
