Destiny Beta Pulls in Over 4.6 Million Players


Congratulations to Activision and Bungie today as they have revealed that over 4.6 million players played their part in the beta for Destiny.

The beta first began on PlayStation consoles on July 17th. It came to an end this past Sunday evening with 4,638,937 unique players participating. 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 added:

We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta, 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.
