Bungie have announced the release date for their long anticipated title, Destiny.
In a post on the official site blog, the former Halo developers revealed the date as 9 September 2014. The development team express their enthusiasm and determination on the game:
Destiny has always represented a new beginning for our team. It was born from brave possibilities. We dreamed of a renewed and independent Bungie. We found partners willing to bet big on some crazy new ideas with us.
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.
With the release date set for September next year, the beta will launch Winter 2014 and will be available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
