We hope you don’t mind long wait times because Bungie has just announced that Destiny, its science fiction based open world multiplayer shooter, will be arriving September 9 2014. In addition, the Destiny beta will also arrive during summer 2014, and you’ll be able to participate in that on the Playstation 3 and PS4 first.
We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago. We promised to redefine what players should expect from a Bungie game. We said we wanted to change the way people play games together. We set our bar high. For us, Destiny represents a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Since then, Destiny has continued to reveal its promise. Every new build brings us closer to our original vision. With those goals in sight, we intend to use every moment from now until the release of the game to ensure that Destiny lives up to your expectations, and our own.
We honestly think they might have revealed the launch date for Destiny a little early this time. It leaves an extremely long period in which they’ll tease the game, and during that same period expectations of what Destiny will bring will also likely increase. What’s your view?
