Twitch Says Destiny is Most Streamed Game Launch of the Year

Activision and Bungie are reporting that in addition to millions of players actually playing Destiny, there are also millions of people out there watching them play. The companies point to Twitch streaming service figures that show the game was the most watched game launch of the year on Twitch, with 20 million views and 240 million minutes of gameplay watched

“To date, Destiny is the biggest console game launch of the year on Twitch,” said Matthew DiPietro, VP of Marketing, Twitch, in an Activision and Bungie press release. “Our passionate community of broadcasters attracted more than 5 million unique viewers in the first week.”

Bungie is glad that people have shown so much interest in Destiny, the release says.

“Our community has always blown us away with their desire to share, entertain, and inspire,” said David Dague, Community Manager at Bungie. “Watching them broadcast their Destiny experiences on Twitch – from the Tower to the Crucible to the Vault of Glass Raid – has been nothing short of amazing. We’re humbled by the enthusiasm and we hope our community knows we’re watching and laughing and applauding back home at the studio.”

Destiny has already added its first major new content, the high-level Vault of Glass raid that is reportedly taking some teams up to 10 hours to complete. More new content is coming this month and next.
