Lo and behold, Bungie’s unhealthy selections have resulted in Destiny 2's worst participant numbers – ever

Destiny 2 has entered seemingly its worst chapter because it first launched – which is basically saying loads. After Bungie laid off “round 8%” of workers just lately, stories got here out suggesting {that a} sharp drop in income is partly responsible for the layoffs.

It all seemingly started with the launch of the Lightfall growth in February, when issues actually began trending downwards for Destiny 2 – inflicting the sport to reportedly miss its income targets by a staggering 45%.

Sentiment is one factor, in fact, however arduous information is a distinct story. As noticed by Forbes, Destiny 2’s participant numbers have been in a free fall for some time now. A fast look on the sport’s SteamDB numbers reveals that it used to peak at over 300,000 gamers, over 200,000 gamers, and over 100,000 gamers at its worst. Numbers have now fallen properly under that.

Things have been fluctuating since July, however drops turned very severe in October, and have now reached the all-time low peak concurrent of beneath 60,000 gamers. The common participant quantity has dropped from 135,102 in March (shortly after Lightfall launched), to only 34,383 over the past 30 days.

Obviously, Steam is the one platform Destiny 2 is accessible on that shares numbers with such depth, however it’s not arduous to think about issues being dire elsewhere, too. To go from giving Destiny 2 its highest-ever Steam concurrent participant rely, to its lowest-ever – Lightfall definitely has earned its title.

As the Forbes article notes, the reported delay of The Final Shape – Destiny 2’s subsequent growth, signifies that the following season will have to be prolonged, which places an excellent greater pressure on an already beleaguered sport. It’s very doable that issues will worsen, however the fear is that, every time The Final Shape arrives, it will not be sufficient to show issues round.

The Final Shape is at present, formally set for launch in February, 2024. Bungie has but to remark publicly on the reported delay, and has even doubled down on the previously-communicated February 27 launch date in a current weblog put up.
