Eclipse is a new triumph for Destiny 2
It already happened a year ago with The Witch Queen, but this time all possible records have been broken. As of yesterday, February 28, the Eclipse (Lightfall) expansion is available to all Destiny 2 players.
If we take a look at SteamDB (portal that collects statistics and game data from Steam), we find that Destiny 2 has broken a new record for simultaneous players.
After the release of Eclipse, we can say that Destiny 2 has reached a new peak of 316,750 concurrent players on Steam. If we add their figures on the Epic Store and consoles, then we are facing an even more overwhelming success.
Currently (as of this writing) there are more than 194,000 users rocking Destiny 2 on Steam. Of course, it must be said that a free version (F2P) is also available.
Not necessarily 100% of these users will be playing the Eclipse expansion, but it’s a nice boost to Destiny 2’s numbers on PC.
It is also striking that 24 hours before Eclipse launch, Destiny 2 has already reached 200,000 concurrent players. The fandom of the title was eager to enjoy another chapter in the adventures of the Guardians.
