Betas are usually something that developers use to listen to fans' feedback and make gameplay changes, but with Destiny, it looks like the game won't need any major changes. Activision saw the Destiny beta as a great success, and with nearly universal positive feedback from players, the developer has decided to leave the game as it is and only make a few tweaks.
"But I would describe this as tweaks and not major changes, as we saw the fundamentals of the game to be very strong. And the good news is because we got 4.6 million players into the beta we were able to test the back-end in scale and it performed really well and stably," said Eric Hirshberg, Activision's boss, when talking about the changes that will be made before the full game is released.
The Destiny beta was played by over 4.6 million people, which gives the game the award of largest console beta for a new IP in history. Destiny will be available worldwide on the 9th of September.
