We’ve been chomping at the bit wondering when Bungie and Activision would release its epic space shooter Destiny…and today, we finally have word.
The game will release on multiple platforms on September 9th, 2014, according to a post from a Bungie blog. Speaking on the official page, community manager DeeJ stated that the game “has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities. We dreamed of a renewed and independent Bungie. We found partners willing to bet big on some crazy new ideas with us.”
“We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago,” the post continues. “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.
The game’s beta is still set to launch early next year exclusively for PlayStation Platforms. “The early support and enthusiasm for Destiny has been inspiring and humbling,” DeeJ said. “We believe that is the right decision for our game, our studio and our passionate community. Thank you for coming along with us in our adventure. See you starside.”
We’ll have more details on Destiny in the coming year.
