Destiny, the upcoming action role-playing first-person shooter from Bungie, will be available worldwide on the 9th of September, 2014, according to the developer's website. The game was originally set to release sometime in Spring 2014.
"Destiny has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities," reads an update from community manager David "Deej" Dague. "We first shared the design pillars of Destiny less than one year ago. 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."
In addition, the update also confirms that the Destiny beta, which was originally scheduled to be available sometime in Spring 2014, will be available in Summer 2014. The beta will be available first on PS3 and PS4.
