The original Destiny was released on September 9, 2014, on previous and current-gen consoles. 25 million people played it in its first year.

In 2017, a sequel was released, which saw over 1.2 million concurrent players in just a few days since release.

Destiny 2 switched to a free-to-play model last year. This could have had a significant impact on the shooter’s growth in popularity.
