If I had a dollar for every person that plays Destiny, I'd have $3.2 million

More On: Destiny

October 9 marked the one month-iversary of Destiny, and—true to that Honest Game Trailers video—is still gaming's hottest 7 out of 10. (Well, we give it an 8 out of 10.) 

Bungie made some stunning stats available about the fledgling science fantasy shooter. With a brand new property that's completely enraptured the gaming community, it's hard to believe it's only been out for four weeks.

  • 3.2 million people play Destiny every day.
  • Average playtime is still around three hours a day, even on weekdays.
  • The average player plays 1.8 times a day.
  • The average player has played Destiny 20.9 times.
  • Over the past three weeks, Bungie had more players online in Destiny than they did during the same time span for Halo 3 and Halo: Reach combined.

3.2 million a day? If Destiny had a ZIP code, it'd be the third-largest city in America (watch your back, L.A.). I only played the beta, but the game has captured my imagination ever since. It's become a staple for many of us here at Gaming Nexus. Cheers, Bungie. Here's to next month's stats.
