These numbers are as of Jan 4th. They're probably even less now. The numbers will in crease when the next DLC comes out. People will play it because they've already paid for it. The new DLC will most likely be a huge disappoinment and the player base will shrink to a new low. It's too late to try and roll out updates incrementally. The only hope Bungo has if they released all promised changes within the next thirty days, but this won't happen because it's to hard, or it takes too long. If they would have released a better game from launch they wouldn't be on a time crunch. R.I.P Bungo/Halo/Destiny, it was fun untill Bungo made an even bigger mistake than EA made with BF2. R.I.P.
I can't speak for everyone, but I can speak to myself, and probably other avid gamers. Destiny 2 consists of a 5 hour loop of Milestones. Literally, that's end game. That's it. Do some public events, do a few strikes, a Nightfall (which is just a strike) and maybe a little PVP or a raid. That's the entire game. And what do we play endgame for? Loot that says number 335 on it. You don't feel any different, you don't play the game any different, there's no point to it. Just do it because 335. Whichever idiot thought this was a passable end game experience needs to quit video game development forever.
