As we head into the upcoming PC release there's bad news on the Destiny 2 console front. According to the following article the game has lost over 2 million players since it first launched. 2 MILLION. Ouch.

You can view the shocking drop in player counts over at Destiny Tracker. As the game launched in early September on Xbox One and PS4 the player count quickly began at around 3.3 million users, and peaked at around 3.5 million users on September 16 - taken as an average of PvE and PvP players. This has been steadily dropping ever since. In the last two days alone Destiny 2 lost 400,000 players. It now currently sits with 1.5 million users on October 19, a full 2 million concurrent users less than just a month ago.

How the PC version will fare in comparison through the widely used Blizzard app that also runs Overwatch remains to be seen.

Not sure those numbers mean anything without a comparison to Destiny. I would expect people to stop playing as they eat up the content available.

I've been looking forward to this one for awhile, I briefly tried the first game on PS4 but playing a shooter at 30fps with a controller just wasn't for me, so I quit shortly after finishing the campaign. I tried the beta and enjoyed it, it just felt like a quality game from top to bottom so I'm sure I'll get plenty out of it. I'm probably most looking forward to the campaign as there's multiple actors voicing characters that I enjoy watching on TV and film.
The question isn't why do I kill people, the question is... why I don't kill everybody

Anyone playing on the PC then or has the moment passed?

That was my fear and probably my main reason holding off getting the game on PC. At least for now.

I haven't really decided. I really need to crack on with stuff once I finish South Park as my productivity has been basically nil for nearly two months as a result of War of the Chosen, Divinity 2 and South Park 2, so will hold off for a while I think and maybe treat myself when I finish the thing I've started work on now.

If you want a shooter to play I would say get Wolfenstein 2 instead.

Not so much, never got much further than an hour or two into the last Wolfenstein. Just not really into linear shooters so much these days. But an open-world, semi-RPG loot-centric shooter that you can play for a couple of hours while disengaging the brain after a day of work could be what I'm looking for :)
