Developer “gobsmacked by the numbers” of participating players.
The Destiny beta came to an end on June 27th but Bungie has been enthusiastic with the response thus far.
The developer recently wrote on Facebook that, “The Destiny beta was a tremendous success from where we sat overlooking the Tower. If you played, Bungie thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. We learned so much about our game, and how we can make it better.”
It further said on Twitter that, “Bungie thanks you for playing. We made some great discoveries of our own, and we’ll use them to make Destiny a great game for all.”
Bungie hasn’t revealed the number of players who took part in the beta – which is expected to have sky-rocketed since the beta was open to PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscribers on July 26th – but community manager Eric Osborne tweeted about how he was “gobsmacked by the numbers.”
Destiny releases on September 9th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. Are you looking forward to it? Let us know below.
