Destiny players grow to 25 million, putting in 3 hours per day

Destiny's registered user base has grown from 20 to 25 million in three months.


The number of registered users playing Destiny has risen from 20 million to 25 million.

On average, players are putting in three hours per day. Activision launched Destiny the Taken King in September, a clear factor in pushing the user base up.

"Day-one downloads broke PlayStation records, day-one engagement saw the highest number of active players in Destiny's history, daily player engagement is now well above 3 hours per day and the Destiny community has climbed to over 25 million registered players," said Activision of the The Taken King launch.

"Since its launch, Destiny has become the most watched console game on Twitch."

Last night it was revealed that Activision bought Candy Crush Saga outfit King.com for $5.9 billion.
