The only other games beating out Destiny in terms of concurrent users are DOTA 2, Counter-strike, and PUBG. It goes without saying that the massive spike in users is causing some server stability issues for Bungie. The server issues appear to be resolving over time, and the number of players hopping into the game is skyrocketing.

It will be interesting to see if Destiny 2 can manage to top the charts for concurrent users. With their loyal fanbase and recently released expansion, we definitely see that as a possibility in the near future. Destiny 2 is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
