One month on from the release of Destiny, Bungie have unveiled some statistics.

Posting as part of their weekly update, the developer revealed that the game averages 3.2 million players each day, with the average play time at around 3 hours per day.

Furthermore, the average player loads up Destiny 1.8 times per day, but has only played the game 20.9 times in the month. Bungie added that in the last three weeks, more players have been online in Destiny than during the same time span for Halo 3 and Halo: Reach combined.

Bungie commented: “We thank you for playing. And, we thank you for the passion and enthusiasm that has made the Destiny community so strong already.

“It’s been amazing to watch your Guardians become legends. Your reactions and your opinions have helped us to make Destiny better over this past month.

“Pioneering something new is never easy. When we see the raw numbers, it’s easy for us to say that the destination was worth the journey. Stay tuned for the next evolution of our shared adventure.”

In the Console Monster review, Destiny scored 77%, being described as “an ambitious and valiant attempt to entwine two radically different styles of gameplay”.
