Bungie will begin the beta for its highly anticipated shooter Destiny this summer, Activision Publishing president and CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed during the latest earnings call.
The beta originally had a “early 2014″ release window attached to it. ”We believe Destiny could be Activision Publishing’s third billion-dollar franchise, and we’re working hard to make it the biggest new IP launch in video game history,” Hirshberg said.
“Together, we are bringing gamers an ambitious and innovative game which combines the intensity of great first-person action, with the character investment and social connections of an RPG in an immense connected universe. We believe the game is on track to deliver record pre-orders for a new franchise, a public beta is planned for summer and we expect to launch the game on September 9.
“We look forward to expanding this universe for years to come and you’ll see much more in the months ahead.”
Activision has previously confirmed that the beta will be available first on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Codes are being sent to users who pre-order the game at ”participating retailers worldwide.”
Destiny is set to release September 9 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
