Destiny 2 is the fourth most played game on Steam currently

Recently, a Steam ranking showed Destiny 2 being the fourth most played game on the platform. The game stood behind the massive player base of titles like Apex Legends, CS: GO and DOTA 2. It also had a more active community than popular games like Grand Theft Auto V, Rust, Dead By Daylight, Valheim and many more.

Over the past few weeks, the community has risen again after a rather boring stretch during Season of the Splicer. The game had become stagnant for a while after fans had to play the same Splicer activities in the game’s fourteenth season. But, following the massive Destiny 2 Showcase, the game has again found its footing with Season of the Lost.
