Destiny beta confirmed for July

Destiny, Mars

Bungie’s Destiny is set for beta in July ahead of its full release on 9 September.

In an Activision Blizzard first quarter investor call, it was confirmed that the beta for Bungie’s upcoming FPS, Destiny, would begin in July. Furthermore, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick stated that Destiny “could become our next billion dollar franchise and the largest new videogame IP launch in history.”

PS3 and PS4 owners are due to gain access to the beta first, with Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners having access at some point afterwards. And with E3 only a month away, perhaps we could be hearing a specific date for the start of the Destiny beta.

Destiny is due out on 9 September 2014, for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Those who pre-order the game will also get access to the beta too.
