Now, in the most recent episode of The Bungie Podcast, Bungie’s Luke Smith, Mark Noseworthy, and Eric Osborne have actually discussed the various levels of engagement a gamer can have with Destiny 2, and the gamers they’re pulling down.

Even within Bungie they have all 3 kinds of gamers, they acknowledge– Luke Smith remains in the 99% percentile of gamers in regards to play time, and discovers himself resting on the numerous famous fragments he has actually collected.
They acknowledge that, after the very first month or two of enthusiast play, things begin to dry up. “And they don’t have as many bars to fill, there’s not as many things to chase potentially. They don’t have those same reasons to log in.”
