In just a little over ONE WEEK Destiny has had more viewers on Twitch TV than any other game to launch this year. And considering Destiny has only been out 9 days that is a huge deal! When it is all said and done, Destiny content has received almost 20 million views within the first week alone. With its fans watching close to 240 million minutes of gameplay or over 456 Years, it is safe to say that is an astronamical number and very likely record breaking.
Matthew DiPietro, the VP of Marketing at Twitch had this to say:
“To date, Destiny is the biggest console game launch of the year on Twitch. Our passionate community of broadcasters attracted more than 5 million unique viewers in the first week.”
David Dague, the Community Manager at Bungie had this to say:
“Our community has always blown us away with their desire to share, entertain, and inspire. 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.”
