It’s been a very big 24 hours for Destiny 2 fans as the Beyond Light expansion has released, bringing along all sorts of new content, some new player concurrency numbers, and some login problems as a result of said concurrency numbers.
First, some of the good news: The game is very nearly breaking some of its own player numbers records on Steam right now, sitting at the number four spot for top games based on player count with over 241K players at its last 24-hour peak — a number that’s very near to its all-time peak of 292K.
Of course, this holds hands with the bad news of a whole laundry list of related problems including various error codes and connection issues for players on all platforms of the game and problems with the Deluxe Edition on Steam, all of which required some extended background maintenance to clear.
As of this writing, the Steam Deluxe Edition problems appear to be resolved while Xbox players stuck in a queue are being advised to manually re-install any addons or DLC. Furthermore, an error with hand cannon sandbox changes has forced the Rose hand cannon to be disabled until further notice.
