Over 4.6 Million Participated In The Destiny Beta
Activision has announced some stats to cap off last week’s Destiny beta test. According to Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, the week of testing was the largest console beta for a new IP to date.
The beta began on July 17 with the PlayStation kickoff, through the July 23 addition of Xbox players, finally culminating on the evening of July 23. During that time, 4,638,937 players sampled the game and helped Bungie prepare for the September launch.
“We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable,” says Bungie chief operating officer Pete Parsons. “We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we’ll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch.”
Destiny will be out for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 on September 9.
