The Destiny beta concluded just this past weekend, and today Bungie and publisher Activision are proudly declaring it a huge success, with over 4.6 million unique players having joined the fight. Now that's a lot of Guardians running around.
Across roughly two weeks, with a brief break in between for maintenance, the Destiny beta launched first for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 back on July 17. The week after, Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners with access codes were able to join in. Toward the final weekend, however, Bungie opened the beta to anyone with an aforementioned console.
4,638,937 unique players were documented as having participated in the beta by its end on July 27. Impressive for sure, and just imagine what that could mean for the actual game when it's out.
Destiny will be released September 9 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Several versions are currently available for pre-order, including a rather awesome collector's edition.
