872.4 million (and counting) collective gameplay hours thus far.
When it released the Bungie Weekly Update, the developer of Destiny elicited more than its fair share of groans from players regarding complaints that still hadn’t been fixed. However, it was revealed that a mind-blowing 13 million players – or to be exact 12,869,066 players – have jumped aboard and tried to become legend.
Of course, this doesn’t reflect how many copies have been sold and it’s more than possible that the recent free demo for all platforms gained its fair share of players. However, Bungie also revealed that 22.93 million Guardians have been created since the game released in September and 872.4 million hours of gameplay time has been notched up thus far.
It also seems that there are +500 staff members working on the franchise, both on the original game and the sequel. How much new content will be heading to the original game remains to be seen but the developer is taking the franchise very seriously.
