The game has toiled hard to retain its player base with post-launch updates. The addition of the Forge mode was the first step towards noticeable improvement. Since then, the game has gradually continued to see a loyal fanbase, which grows by the day. On the other hand, Destiny 2 is going through tough times recently. Its player base dropped to the lowest ever recorded on Steam due to many issues in the new DLC and the core game.
