Destiny Beta is the Biggest Beta in This Console Generation

The Destiny Beta that ran from July 17th to July 27th attracted 4,638,937 unique users into the world of Destiny. Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, said “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.”

Hirshberg went on to say “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.”

The massive beta test allowed the game developers and programmers to gather vital information that will aid in the betterment of the finished game, and yet the scope of the beta was far more than Bungie had anticipated. Pete Parsons, COO of Bungie, said of the beta test, “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.”
