Stadia player count hinted at by Destiny 2 figures
Google Stadia will shut down in a week, but all the while, Google never provided any information on the number of players its cloud gaming platform had managed to collect. If Destiny 2 is any indication, it wasn’t good.
Destiny 2 was one of the first games to launch on Google Stadia when it debuted in November 2019, and it remained one of the most popular games on the platform, especially after it became free, making Stadia incredibly cost-effective. place to play.
But despite this, Stadia only managed to account for a fraction of Destiny 2’s total player count during its lifetime.
The Destiny Raid Report, a tool that tracks Destiny 2 player stats, collected statistics on Stadia and Destiny 2 since November 2019, giving us a good idea of how many people have actually used Stadia. According to these statistics, Stadia accounted for just 1.5% of new Destiny 2 account creations since November 2019, and only 0.10% of all raids completed since then were conducted on Stadia – that’s just over 23,000 total raids from less than 900,000 accounts.
Could Stadia have much more players than this? It is certainly possible! But it stands to reason that one of the most popular games on the platform – and one of the most popular games in the world for the past few years – would give us a good insight into Stadia’s overall success, and these stats are just a pittance. .
With Destiny Stadia ending support, stats from November 2019-present:
•23,056 total raids were carried out at the stadium (0.10% of raids during that time period)
•894,838 accounts were made in the stadium (1.5% of all accounts)
•0.39% of accounts from other platforms played a stadium activity

The platform has certainly surpassed a million total players in its lifetime, but it likely hasn’t been much. It seems reasonable to assume that at least a third, give or take, of Stadia players would have played Destiny 2 at some point. If that’s true, Google’s platform had no more than three million total players in its lifetime, and that’s being very generous.
Destiny 2 closed access to multiplayer matches as of yesterday, January 10, for Stadia players. Those who played on the platform have until January 18 – the day Stadia closes – to save their characters and progress using cross-save tools.
