There were a whopping 1.2 million players on the Destiny 2 servers across all platforms earlier, suggesting that Bungie’s new first-person shooter has been a gargantuan success. The developer just so happens to have announced the tidbit as steamroll success PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds clocks one million concurrents on the PC, perhaps demonstrating just how strong a start the sequel is off to.

It’s perhaps not a huge surprise: this author did wonder whether the game would be able to draw in an audience beyond fans of the original, but plenty of marketing spend seems to have sorted that out. We’ll have a review of the game soon, but you can read our hands on impressions of the retail release through here.
