Destiny has been out for a month, which is long enough for Bungie to have compiled some reliable data on how players are interacting with the game.
Approximately 3.2 million people play Destiny every day, said Bungie in its latest Destiny Weekly Update. The developer said that on average, players play close to three hours per day.
"Players are logging more hours per day then any game we have ever made, our servers have withstood millions of guardians experiencing Destiny and none of it would have been possible without our amazing community," said Bungie COO Pete Parsons.
Bungie added that the average player plays Destiny 1.8 times a day, and has logged on 20.9 times since launch.
Destiny has had more players online than during the same span for Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, combined, said Bungie.
The Weekly Update also addressed player concerns over the Iron Banner event, which many believe isn't working as advertised.
"The way we pitched Iron Banner did make it sound like a 'no-holds-barred' playlist," conceded senior designer Derek Carroll. "In reality, we delivered what we felt would be a competitive experience for everyone, not just players at the level cap. The reaction from players seems to be: 'No, we want it to be bad for lower-level players. That’s the point!'"
"We’re listening to that feedback, but this first Iron Banner is fairly conservative."
Carroll said that even in the Iron Banner, "Your skill will take you 80 percent of the way to victory." However, "that last 20 percent will be a much harder climb without the gear you’ve been relying on."
