Of course, this was always going to happen.
Destiny’s 2.0 patch, which overhauls the game in anticipation of The Taken King expansion launching next week, managed to be downloaded by millions of people, Bungie said. And this is in spite of a troubled launch marred by slow download speeds as well.
“Ever since Update 2.0 went live, we’ve been monitoring the progress of the millions of Guardians who are downloading it,” Bungie said. Of course, the patch was always going to see high download figures, no matter what- it is mandatory to continue playing Destiny further, which means that all the active player base of the game would end up downloading it eventually.
Destiny 2.0 continues, with the upcoming launch of Destiny: The Taken King on September 15. If you are new to Destiny, you can always just buy the Taken King Legendary Edition, which will include the base game, The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King, as well as every single patch and update for the game yet, all for just $60- finally presenting us with a Destiny value proposition that doesn’t feel obscenely content starved.
