Following that, Destiny 2 was no longer accessible on Blizzard’s after September 30. All the game progress, gear, product licenses, and Silver currency remains the same.

One interesting thing is that since the migration to Steam, the game quickly became the 4th most popular game on Steam, just behind the big 3 on Steam: PUBG, Dota 2, CS:GO. The average player number is around 130k people. The game peaks at 292,314 concurrent players and a total of 24,567,230 hours played.
