It has been over a month now since Bungie's huge game Destiny has come out. Since that time, it has already achieved a lot of big milestones.

First of all, Destiny gets around 3.2 million daily average players. Most of the players play the game for an average of around 3 hours per day. Many people still play the game even on the weekdays.

Bungie also revealed that the average players plays Destiny 1.8 times per day. While in total, the average player has played the game 20.9 times. The latter stat is sure to increase because as time goes by.

"It's been an incredible first month for Destiny," said Pete Parsons, COO Bungie. "Players are logging more hours per day then any game we have ever made, our servers have withstood millions of guardians experiencing Destiny and none of it would have been possible without our amazing community. Thank you all for the great first month and we look forward to sharing many more with you."

The biggest statistic of all is that Destiny has managed to attain more online players in three weeks than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach in the same time span combined.
