Destiny 2 pulls in 1.2M concurrent online players

Bungie's sci-fi sequel Destiny 2 pulled in 1.2 million concurrent online players over the weekend, suggesting the online shooter has made a promising start.

Newsbrief: Bungie's sci-fi sequel Destiny 2 pulled in 1.2 million concurrent online players over the weekend.

It's a noteworthy stat when you consider the game launched on September 6, and is currently only available on consoles. A PC version is slated to hit shelves on October 24. 

Although there aren't any official sales figures out in the wild, it looks like the online shooter has made a promising start.

Coincidentally, the news comes a few days after PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds made waves by surpassing 1 million concurrent users on Steam

While the all-time Steam concurrent user record still belongs to Dota 2, Battlegrounds has been closing in on the popular MOBA since breezing past the 1 million mark on Friday.
