Activision and Bungie have offered some clarity on the number of players currently logging into Destiny 2. Recently, the developer shared in a blog post that “millions” were stepping into their Guardian roles, but left the exact number vague.

As of September 9th, just three days after the game’s official launch, Bungie revealed the sequel had 1.2 million concurrent players online. Keep in mind, this is accounting for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users combined. The number should continue to climb once the PC version becomes available on October 24th. For the sake of comparison, the original game reported 3.2 million players after its first month, meaning Destiny 2 still has some time to surpass its own milestone.

A majority of the reason for breaking the million mark is that players have been diligently leveling up their Guardians to prepare for new content. Apart from the primary campaign and current online Crucible activities to draw in daily players, Bungie also announced the game’s first raid will arrive September 13th, which will require clans and fireteams to take on some of the most difficult challenges seen in the game. Just two days later on September 15th, Trials of the Nine, another group-oriented set of missions, will promise high-level gear and weaponry. All in all, the player count should stay consistently high for the foreseeable future due to new content releasing not long after launch.

Although sales numbers for Destiny 2 have not been released yet, Activision did reveal the pre-order number for the sequel were higher than Destiny‘s, which reportedly made $500 million on its launch day in 2014.
