The new IP from the original creators of Halo Bungie have concluded their beta for Destiny and has come back with some positive results. The beta had astounding number of players who took part being quoted as “The biggest beta of the console generation” clocking in 4,638,937 players taking part in the beta.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing stated, “This is the biggest beta of this console generation by a wide margin and the largest console beta ever for a new video game IP to date. Hosting a beta at this scale is an incredible feat, so we’re thrilled to see the phenomenal response. But the beta is just a taste of what’s to come. We’re counting down the days to our launch day, September 9th.”
Pete Parsons, COO of Bungie also showed how grateful he was about everyone taking part by saying, “We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. 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.”
