That was short lived. Lightfall is proving to be a stumble and player counts already dropped by 100,000 along with thousands of negative reviews Currently sitting at 29% Bungie in quality has always been a mixed bag ever since Destiny launched. I put in over 1500 hours into Destiny 2 alone and even I was miserable at times lol.
Still though, even with a bad expansion, Destiny 2 will still be a top dollar maker on Steam.
That's all that really matters for Sony lol. Similar to FIFA, Call of Duty, Madden, etc, getting panned, they still end up generating a ton of revenue/profit. Destiny 2 has been around long enough that a terrible expansion won't dent its player retention. The next expansion, or the transmedia adaptation, will catapult the game into another record breaking CCU on Steam.
