Activision has announced that more than 4.6 million people, 4,638,937 people, to be exact, have played the Destiny beta. The beta was closed on Sunday and had been available on PlayStation platforms since the 17th of July, and on Xbox platforms since the 23rd of July.
According to Activision, the Destiny beta was the largest console beta for a new IP in history. As expected, it was also the most successfull beta so far on PS4 and Xbox One.
Pete Parsons, Bungie's COO, has said: "We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we'll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch."
