Now is a momentous time in Destiny 2, as the anticipated Lightfall expansion has finally been released. The debut of the development coincided with the game setting a new concurrent player record on Steam.
Today, the game’s peak concurrent Steam users surpassed 300,000, an all-time high for any Bungie game. The previous contemporary player record for Destiny 2 was roughly 128,000 people, so Bungie’s hopes that Lightfall would boost the game’s numbers were realized.
While console versions of Destiny 2 are also available, the 300,000 top concurrent players count likely understates the game’s popularity. The release of Lightfall probably coincided with a rise of interest in Destiny 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
