Last weekend, the Destiny Beta ended and so began what might subjectively be the longest month before the game’s actual release on September 9th. Destiny is anticipated to be one of the biggest releases of 2014, so it’s not surprising that when developer, Bungie, released some statistics from the Beta, spread over all 4 platforms, there were some genuinely impressive numbers in there.
According to Bungie, 4,638,937 people took part in the 9 day Beta, who created 6.5 million in-game characters. When Bungie opened the Beta up to people who hadn’t preordered the game, 853,235 concurrent players were recorded as being online, 851,264 of which were given the exclusive honour of visiting the Moon. While the servers weren’t perfect during the Beta (I had two disconnects in the very short time that I played), it does look like Bungie might have what it takes to support the masses of Guardians that are going to log-in on September 9th. Check out the full infographic that Bungie provided below.
Destiny is going to be released on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 9th, 2014.
